Back to School

 THE Kalamazoo Deacons Conference will again hold a back to school event in August.   The event is called P.A.S.S.  (Preparing,  Assisting Successful Students for the Promise)  We are changing the focus of our back to school event to focus on equipping and encouraging high-schoolers to take advantage of the opportunity of a college education and have a plan to NOT drop out of school. PASS will be held at LaCrone Park On Sunday, August 14 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.   This event provides FREE back packs and FREE school supplies to students who have pre-registered.  Registration is due to KDC by August 5.

KDC is in need of donations of school supplies for high-schoolers.   SUPPLIES NEEDED:  Flash Drive, Stapler, 3 ring Binder, Thesaurus, Backpack, 3 x 5 index cards, Highlighters, Computer Paper, Markers, Graph Paper, Scissors, Pocket Dictionary, Pencil Sharpener, Glue Stick, Organizer/planner, Pencils, Scientific Calculator, Pens, Hand Sanitizer, Eraser, College ruled notebook paper, 3 – 5 subject notebook.  Donations may be brought to KDC, Monday – Friday 9 am – 4:30 pm or any Great Clips location.

We are grateful for our partnership with WayFm, WSCG and Great Clips in providing so many school supplies through their Class Act Drive.  Everyone is welcome to join the fun – however, the backpacks and school supplies are available for 9th – 12th graders only.   Advance registration at the Kalamazoo Deacons Conference is REQUIRED!
