AACPS, local churches held back-to-school events

The Anne Arundel County school system is anticipating more than 8,000 county residents to attend back-to-school events that offer resources and information for the upcoming school year.

For the fourth consecutive year, the school system is staging its Back-to-School Expo in partnership with Abundant Life Church in Glen Burnie. The Aug. 23 event is slated to be part of the church’s Super Saturday Kids Carnival.

On Fort Meade, the school system will launch its inaugural Back-to-School Bash on Aug. 16 at Meade Middle School, in conjunction with the  i5 Church and the Full Gospel Emancipation Life Center, both located in Odenton.

Anne Arundel school officials said that backpacks and school supplies will be distributed and that both events will include local principals, representatives from the school system’s food and nutrition offices and representatives from the county’s department of social services.
