It's that time of year again! August 8th Metro Nashville Public Schools will be back in full swing!

In preparation for the new school year, many organizations are having Back to School Bash and other school events that will help parents and students prepare for the quickly approaching school year. In this informative list, you will find information about family community events, most offering free supplies. Many events also include food and fun!

You can support your local schools by donating supplies and asking teachers for their Amazon Wish List links! A small item can make a big difference for teachers and students.

Back to School events start this weekend with a big Music City Thrift 50% off sale on Friday, July 29th, five events on Saturday, July 30th, and two events on Sunday, July 31st. Looking into August, Creative Girls Rock® is hosting six backpack give-a-ways in and around Nashville as well as a big community event on Sunday, August 7th.

Happy New School Year Nashville!
