Columbia County’s 10th Annual Back to School Festival a Success
August 4, 2009 – (Evans, GA) – More than 800 people attended Columbia County’s 10th Anniversary Back to School Festival on August 1 at Evans Middle School. The event, which began in 1998, prepares Columbia County students for the upcoming school year.
"The Back to School Festival is a chance for parents and students to learn about after school programs, college education planning, school bus safety and for pre-k and kindergarten students to receive their 3 point screenings, “said Amy Johnston, coordinator of the Back to School Festival, “This is a great opportunity for young children to learn about school bus safety by meeting Buster the Bus, who teaches children the proper way to behave around and on a school bus. It also gives the parents a chance to meet teachers and members of their schools PTO.”
All the children were given a lunch box from University Hospital.
