Load the Bus for Kids

Three administrators sticking their head outside the bus.THANK YOU to everyone who donated money and school supplies for this year's Load the Bus Campaign.  Once again, Roanoke City and Roanoke County Schools joined forces to collect school supplies for children.

We greatly appreciate our administrators, Central Office personnel, and other staff who volunteered at three area Walmart stores.  Thank you to the William Fleming Football Team, Drum Line and Cheerleaders, as well as the Patrick Henry  Football and Volleyball Teams for helping us Load the Bus for Kids.

Once again, Walmart graciously provided space, grant money, and had its cashiers ask customers to donate supplies at the registers.  Alcova Mortgage held a separate school supplies drive on the Historic City Market.  These are great examples of a community coming together to help our students.  It is another reason why #RoanokeRocks. 

You can still donate school supplies through our Amazon Wish List.  Your purchase will be shipped directly to Roanoke City Schools.  THANK YOU for your support! 

We will distribute the supplies at our annual Back-to-School Extravaganza Saturday, August 17 at William Fleming High School.  From 9 a.m. to noon, any Roanoke City School student can receive a free bag of school supplies.
