Appo will be giving away free school supplies at their Aug. 6 event.

Appoquinimink School District is calling on all parents and children to attend its Aug. 6 Family Day festival.

The event will include food, music, face painting, games and giveaways — and it’s completely free for Appo families. 

The day of fun will be held from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Louis L. Redding Middle School, located at 201 New St. in Middletown. 

Appo’s students head back to the classroom Sept. 6, and to give parents some relief on last minute school shopping, the event will also include a school supply giveaway.

“THANK YOU to the coordinating sponsor, the ladies of the Mu Psi Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. and the many local co-sponsors who are generously lending their support to make this possible,” the district posted on their website. 

Some of the other sponsors include DelDOT, Giant Food Stores and Food Lion.
