HENDERSON CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Parents got some extra help getting ready for the school year at the Henderson County Schools’ Back to School Readifest on Tuesday.

Parents got to pick up free school supplies at the Henderson County Schools’ archery building during the event.

Community partners also attended the event to share information on resources for students and gifting treats to the kids.

One family member of a student said they think the event is great for those attending school in the Henderson community.

“Definitely for people that you know can’t afford or are in a situation that they can’t get school supplies, things like that,” Katelyn Stone said. “And also just for the kids, to come out and meet people from the community and learn about you know things that they can do and volunteer and things like that.”

School leaders say Readifest aims to make sure all students have access to resources and information to have a successful start to the new year.

This year’s Readifest also included online registration assistance, informational booths from community agencies and school supplies.
