Back-Packed for Success
The Family Place is hosting a back-to-school event for kids entering Pre-K through sixth grade at local northern Berkshire elementary schools. Students and their parents can get a free backpack filled with school supplies and meet their school principal. The event for families living in Florida and Savoy, Mass., will be located at Gabriel Abbott Elementary School, 56 North County Road, Florida, on Tuesday, August 12, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The event for families living in Williamstown, North Adams, Clarksburg, Adams and Cheshire, Mass., will be located at The Family Place, 61 Main Street, North Adams, on Thursday, August 14, from 1 to 3 p.m. The event requires pre-registration to ensure we have a backpack ready for each child, as supplies are limited.
