The AISD Back to School Kickoff will help thousands of Arlington ISD students and their families get the supplies and resources they need to be ready for the 2015-2016 academic year.
At the AISD Back to School Kickoff, which will be held on the west outdoor plaza and indoor platform of AT&T Stadium, pre-registered students will receive a backpack filled with school supplies appropriate to their grade level, as well as the opportunity to visit a variety of resource booths and attend educational workshops. Booths will include an immunization station, vision checks, eyeglasses fittings, information on after-school care programs and more. Workshop topics will include college readiness, testing tips, parent and student responsibility, and more. Additionally, attendees can expect to see appearances by Dallas Cowboys mascot Rowdy, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and former Dallas Cowboys players.
To be eligible to attend the AISD Back to School Kickoff, AISD students must qualify for the free or reduced-price meal program.
The number of backpacks for each grade is limited and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Transportation is available for pre-registered attendees and should be requested via the online registration form.
