HOUSTON (CW39) Brenham ISD is pulling out all the stops, to make sure kids start of on the right foot, this school year. Literally! TODAY, August 13, the district is hosting it’s first ever Back-to-School Resource Fair.

More than 700 pairs of brand-new tennis shoes will be given away to Brenham ISD students, at the back-to-school event. More than a dozen local hairstylists are coming together to give students haircuts for their first day of school. Cub Mascots ‘Chloe’ and ‘Carson’ will also be in attendance to greet students and take pictures. Free Kona Ice, cotton candy, vision screening, COVID-19 vaccine and testing will be available.

The district says: It is our vision to Inspire and Encourage Excellence for ALL. In collaboration with our families and community. Brenham ISD is committed to providing an exceptional education for ALL students; however, last year, we noticed that some of our students had shoes with holes in them or were just too old. Childhood is supposed to be a carefree time, and students should not have to worry about the basic necessities and sadly, we found out that some of our students are facing those situations. Some of our Cubs are in desperate need of a decent pair of shoes.’ We hope that all students will feel confident, feel great, and have a lasting pair of brand new shoes for the 2021-2022 school year.
