2022 School Kickoff Community Celebration

  • August 6th, 2022

    Island Grove Regional Park

    501 N. 11th Avenue - 9am-12pm


    Mark your calendar for the 9th annual School Kickoff Community Celebration, to be held in the Event Center at Island Grove Regional Park. This annual event provides high-quality backpacks and school supplies to District 6 students, preschool through 12th grade. Students must be registered at a District 6 school, or register at the event, to receive a backpack. In addition, there will be community booths featuring activities, giveaways and resources. Banner Health providers will host a low-cost sports physical clinic. There will also be a petting zoo hosted by the Greeley West FFA Chapter and free sack lunches for every child who attends. One change this year: Entry to the event will be on the west side of the event center. Due to another event at Island Grove, most school kickoff activities will happen inside the Event Center. Help us celebrate the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year by attending the School Kickoff Community Celebration! We can't wait to see you!

Volunteer Opportunities


    Volunteers are needed to help make our School Kickoff Celebration a success! We will need help at the event with many tasks including setting up before the event, greeting people and line management, distributing backpacks to students, food service and distributing sack lunches, and cleaning up/breakdown after the event. If you are not available the day of the event, we will also need help the day prior to stuffing backpacks with sponsor material.  All volunteers will need to complete a volunteer application/background check through Raptor to participate.
