Montgomery County public school students report to class two weeks from today, and the annual back-to-school rally is coming up this Saturday.
School officials say the event is a time for students and families to come get information about what to expect at school this year. There are also free haircuts for kids, some free school supplies, plus food and entertainment.
This is the third year the school system has sponsored the rally, which alternates from one side of the county to the other. This year, the back-to-school event will be at West Montgomery High School, and it starts at 10 a.m., Sat. Aug. 17. Students and their families from all over the county are invited, and more information is available at 910-576-6511.
Open house events will be held at all county schools Aug. 21-22. The complete schedule is available on the WMTG Community Calendar.
