Students receive free school supplies at Woodland’s Back to School Bash


Hundreds of students in Woodland received free backpacks full of school supplies at the district’s sixth annual Back to School Bash on Aug. 20.

The event featured the return of indoor activities. Along with the free supplies, families were able to take part in a raffle for door prizes that were provided by businesses in and around the Woodland area, stated a news release. The event also featured a bounce house and a free meal that was provided by Woodland’s food services staff.

 “The Back to School Bash continues to be one of the most popular events we put on all year, and we couldn’t do it without our community partners who volunteer at the event as well as those who donate funds and supplies,” said Gabrielle “Gabby” Meador, the district’s coordinator for its Family and Community Resource Center. “We receive amazing support from our community to ensure this event continues to be the outstanding success it is.”

The Family and Community Resource Center relies on the support of local businesses and community organizations. 

The school district’s Family and Community Resource Center provides resources and services to in-need students and their families who live in Clark or Cowlitz counties. 

“The return to the full-fledged event thanks to the lifting of pandemic restrictions was truly exciting,” Meador said. “Watching students and families having fun and exploring the various resources on-hand makes all the work so satisfying.” 

Woodland Public Schools welcomed back its students on Aug. 30.
