Students at Meadowthorpe Elementary School will walk into class on the first day of school to find all of their school supplies neatly laid out on their desks. That's because the school has been able to supply all of their necessities for the year.
Meadowthorpe's parent-teacher association has been very active in raising funds for the school which helped with the purchase of supplies for nearly 500 students. The students also received planners and will be getting t-shirts at a later date.
There will be numerous back-to-school rallies in Fayette County on Saturday, August 7th. For more information on the locations you can visit the Fayette County School District's website at www.fcps.net. The district expects to hand out 8,000 sets of new school supplies at the rallies.
