2015 Back-to-School Rally, National Night Out Aug. 4
2 days ago
The School District of University City and the University City Police Department are once again joining forces to host the 2015 Back-to-School Rally and National Night Out celebration. The event will be held from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4 on the campus of the Ronald E. McNair Administration Building at 8136 Groby Road.
University City students, parents and community members are welcome to participate in this free event where the community comes together to kick off the school year, increase neighborhood spirit and strengthen community/police partnerships.
The first day of school is Tuesday, Aug. 11, so attendees will get a jump start on preparing for the school year as a favorite giveaway includes backpacks filled with grade-level school supplies (limited number, will not be distributed until AFTER official event opening ceremony). This fun-filled event also includes a performance stage featuring AJSR (click here), petting zoo, bounce houses, food and drinks, painting, music, entertainment, haircuts, health screening information, hands-on educational activities, information about crime and drug prevention, and much more. All free and open to the public.
We will also offer $10 student-athlete physicals. We also expect the return of St. Louis Urgent Care (confirmation still pending), providing $10 general pediatric physicals for any U. City student during the event or at nearby locations following the event (more details available at the event).
WITS, INC. (http://www.witsinc.org/) will be providing 15-minute computer repair and maintenance work sessions along with information for community members to get computers, laptops and tablets for free or at significantly reduced prices. Session schedule is as follows:
5:15 & 6:15 p.m. - How not to get a virus or Malware on your computer
5:30 & 6:30 p.m. - Computer upgrades you can do yourself: Memory
5:45 & 6:45 p.m. - Computer upgrades you can do yourself: Hard Drives
6 & 7 p.m. - Importance of computer security and protecting yourself and your family on the internet
“Our partnership with the police department works so well. It makes sense to combine the celebrations,” said Joylynn Pruitt, Ed.D., superintendent of schools. “By joining forces, we’re able to leverage the community’s time, so they can enjoy the fun activities, giveaways and helpful information concentrated into one event,” she said.
“We’re looking forward to another great year,” said Chief of Police Charles Adams. “I’m pleased we’re able to come together in this way, and we’re once again calling for volunteers.”
