Back-to-School Season

The #HerefortheKids campaign brings together families, educators, and community members to shine a light on local public schools and tell the stories of the amazingly positive things happening in classrooms and school buildings nationwide. 

The celebration of Back-to-School Season 2023 will be observed August 14 – September 30 and ties into the larger public education campaign, #HerefortheKids.

It’s a critical time for all of us to work together to support public education and our students’ success. As we know, when we support our public schools, we support our kids.  

Please explore the site to find quick and simple ways you can be #HerefortheKids during Back-to-School Season 2023.
