Mansfield ISD will host its annual back-to-school bash on Saturday, Aug. 5 from 7:30 a.m. to noon at the Dr. Jim Vaszauskas Center for the Performing Arts (1110 W. Debbie Lane, Mansfield, Texas 76063).

The Bash will officially kickoff the start of the 2023-24 school year. In addition to a wide variety of activities and games, there will be school supplies, student health services and more—completely free of charge for all Mansfield ISD students.

Through various sponsorships and donations, the district is able to provide backpacks and shoes. Our goal is to give away more than 5,000 backpacks filled with school supplies as well as 1,500 pairs of shoes at this year's event. The money raised will be used to buy the items that will be distributed at the bash.

If you are interested in helping us reach our goal, please consider making an online donation or becoming an event sponsor.

Event Overview

At the bash, backpacks, school supplies, shoes and health services will be provided free of charge to MISD students.

No registration is required, but families will be required to check in for the backpacks, school supplies, health services and shoes. Parents/students should be ready to provide the student’s ID number on the day of the event for verification. In order to receive a pair of shoes, students must be present on the day of the event.

Additional details about resources and services will be updated closer to the event date.

Community groups and businesses that wish to provide relevant services, products and information to attendees have the opportunity to occupy a booth at the bash. Booth space is limited and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Reserve your space here.

If you have questions about an existing booth request, please contact Lari Barager at 817- 299-6327 or LariBarager@misdmail.org.

Each campus will be in attendance with fun activities like bounce houses, obstacle courses and more to interact with our MISD families. In addition, a variety of student performances will be held in the Performing Arts Center. This will be an opportunity for parents/guardians and students to meet with the campuses they will attend and see some of the many programs Mansfield ISD has to offer.
