Clearwater Back-to-School Events

It’s that time of year again when excitement fills the year. Parents everywhere rejoice as kids prepare to return to school!

Somewhat less exciting – actually decidedly less so – are the expenses involved in beginning a new school year. New clothes, new shoes … these prices add up quickly and with prices currently as they are, everyone’s looking for any way they can to cut costs.

Clearwater will have a number of school supply giveaways, and fun back-to-school bashes hosted through various entities such as the Clearwater Library System, various churches and more. Most events are first come, first served until supplies run out, and some require registrations, so be sure to check the details for each event.

Here are the events in order by date:
