The Chelsea Public Schools held its annual Back to School Celebration on Thursday, Aug. 25, with thousands of students and families reporting to the Williams School for an afternoon of fun and free school supplies. Students met administrators and were introduced to after-school activities - not to mention getting hot dogs and time in the bounce house. In addition, Kronos Company and Citizens Schools combined efforts to give away some 800 new backpacks to young people who attended.
Students from Chelsea public schools, including those that participate in Citizen Schools’ Expanded Learning Time, will kick off the new school year with 900 donated backpacks full of pencils, notebooks, rulers, and more. Citizen Schools, an organization that empowers public middle schools in low-income communities with longer learning days, received the backpacks filled with supplies as a donation from Kronos Incorporated, Mass.-based global leader in workforce management solutions.
