I recently participated in a National Night Out Event in my community. It was an amazing event, with music, dance contests, food, bouncehouses and backpack giveaways. It was amazing to see all the people come out in the apartment community I live in to celebrate taking back the night and starting the new school year! The kids were excited to get out and celebrate, the parents were encouraged to win backpacks full of school supplies, and it was great to come together as a community for a common good. Do your communities celebrate the new school year in any way?
