Back to School Bash

  • The Back to School Bash was created to provide our Nixa families with a little extra support before they start school. The event will supply each student with a backpack, hygiene supplies, basic school supplies (based on the student's grade level), a new pair of shoes, and additional resources. 

    The only requirement is to be a Nixa Public Schools student who needs assistance. There are no income requirements or other restrictions. We will also provide connections to other services to make sure you are supported throughout the school year. 

    This annual event is made possible with the support of Nixa community organizations and businesses. 

    How to Sign-Up for the Back to School Bash - Sign Up Ends: Friday, June 10, 2022

    The only requirement is to be a Nixa Public Schools student who needs assistance. Once you sign up, all we ask is that you please arrive at your scheduled time. To sign-up, CLICK HERE

    If you need assistance getting back to school supplies and have not done so yet, please fill out a sign-up form by Friday, June 10, for the Back to School Bash. A cut-off is needed to be able to order all the necessary school supplies and have them on hand for the bash.

    Ways to Volunteer

    We supply nearly 700 Nixa students and their families with comfort and piece-of-mind when it comes to back to school. This cannot happen without the time, energy, and dedication of our volunteer teams.

    Our volunteers for the Back to School Bash are the life of the event. They ensure our attendees are comforted and find all of the items they need to start their new school year. If you are interested in volunteering in the morning, afternoon, or the whole day, we ask you to complete this brief interest form. We will share more information about your responsibilities and the event as we get closer to the date.

    Ways to Donate

    It may be difficult to understand the impact that one can bring to a child through a random act of kindness. We are calling for the community to rally around our annual Back to School Bash. This event provides hundreds of Nixa students with specific school supplies and essential items they need.
