Polk County High School exceptional students help prepare for Back to School Bash

Published 10:00 pm Thursday, June 26, 2014


The Polk County High School Exceptional Students class, along with their teacher, Maria Freeman, has been busily working on the Back to School Bash school supply bags for the Tryon United Methodist Church.
Their exceptional artwork in preparing these bags is much appreciated by all. All of the love and hard work they have willingly provided has really helped to get the Bash off to a good start.
The Tryon United Methodist Church has been collecting winter coats this spring. They have over 100 coats to give away and are still collecting for the Bash which will be held August 9 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Those who would like to help keep the Polk County children warm are asked to bring new or slightly used children’s coats by the church office.
There is a large plastic bin by the parking lot entrance to put coats.
Each year, our Back to School Bash has grown and it is hoped that this year will be better than ever.  The Tryon United Methodist Church will continue to give out over 300 bags of school supplies, winter coats and haircuts to students. Hot dogs, snow cones and play on our inflatables are freely given to students and their families.
