This Saturday, join thousands of students, families and community for our 9th Annual Back-to-School Block Party at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex in Landover! This 'unofficial kickoff' to the new school year is a chance to meet, greet and get #PGCPS1stDayReady! 

The event also marks the culmination of this year’s #PGCPS10KBackpacks campaign, which collected 10,000 backpacks and school supplies from staff, community, businesses and sponsors.

The event features a backpack giveaway (families must have registered to receive a backpack), school and County resources, vendors, free vision and dental screenings for children, video game trucks, entertainment and more.
