Celebrate the end of summer at this free, family-friendly event set for Saturday, August 12, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Sunrise Civic Center (10610 West Oakland Park Boulevard, 33351).
The Back to School Round-Up will be jam-packed with rides, games, music, food and fun! Representatives from Sunrise schools will be on hand to answer your questions about the 2017-2018 academic year; we'll have information sessions about Social Services in Sunrise, Finding Dollars for College, Community Policing Programs, and Early Learning; and copies of the updated Sunrise Neighborhood Schools Guide will be available.
Drawstring backpacks with school supplies - and grade-appropriate books - will be distributed free* to the first 1,000 K-12 students with proof of Sunrise residency. (*Quantities are limited. One book and one backpack per child. Parent/guardian must be present.)
Family Central's C-QuELL (Community for Quality Early Learning and Literacy) initiative will host a Pre-K Corral where families with children age 3-5 can participate in art happenings, story times, and more.
This year's Back to School Round-Up is presented in collaboration with Baptist Health South Florida and Sun Bergeron. For additional information, please call the City of Sunrise Leisure Services Department: (954) 747-4600.
