2020 School Kickoff Community Celebration

  • School Kickoff Cancelled

  • Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and health concerns regarding large gatherings, the annual School Kickoff Community Celebration scheduled for August 8, 2020 at Island Grove Regional Park is cancelled.

    Free backpacks and school supplies will still be distributed through schools this year for students in need. Sponsors who have remained committed to this event and backpack distribution will pay for the backpacks, school supplies, and shipping and distribution costs. 

    "We are disappointed we won't be able to come together this year for our annual School Kickoff, but with an annual attendance of nearly 6,000 people, we don't believe we could make the event safe for attendees and volunteers," said Theresa Myer, Chief of Communications for District 6. "We know the need for backpacks and school supplies may even be greater this year due to the economic downturn in our area, so we are working on a plan to purchase the backpacks and school supplies with the sponsorships we have and that are still coming in, and distribute those to our students through schools."

    Donate Online Greeley-Evans School District 6 still needs sponsors who can help purchase as many backpacks and school supplies as possible to support our students. Many sponsors have not been able to support the backpack program this year due to their own economic challenges. Here are some sponsorship opportunities for local businessses and organizations. 

    Principle Sponsor: $5,000 will purchase 300 backpacks filled with school supplies.

    Premiere Sponsor: $3,000 will purchase 300 backpacks.

    Backpack and School Supply Sponsor: $2,000 will purchase 100 backpacks filled with school supplies

    Backpack Sponsor: $1,000 will purchase 100 backpacks

    School Supply Sponsor: $500 will purchase school supplies for 100 backpacks

    Paper and Pen Sponsor: $250 will purchase school supplies for 25 backpacks

    Pencil Sponsor: $100 will purchase school supplies for 10 backpacks.

    "We so appreciate all our sponsors, who have made this event such a success for the past seven years," Myers said. "We need them now more than ever. Our families are facing the same economic challenges as many in our community. We anticipate there will be more need for assistance than ever before. We appreciate anyone who can help this year. Even a small donation makes a difference for children."
