Earlier this month, The Art Institute of California – Orange County, a campus of Argosy University, joined over 80 community partners in helping the Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) host its inaugural Back to School Bash by donating part of the nearly 3,000 backpacks and supplies distributed to SAUSD students.

In addition to the free backpacks, students and their families attending the event were able to learn more about the programs and resources offered by the District. This includes literacy support for young readers, youth enrichment opportunities, and career exploration for high school students. The Art Institute of California – Orange County was one of 70 supporting booths at the event, with our staff talking to several students about pursuing their goals in the creative arts.

In addition to student performances, Santa Ana's local radio station La Ranchera provided entertainment. The District’s Nutrition Services also fed guests with samples from the school lunch menu, providing parents an opportunity to taste and learn what their children will be eating at school.

The event was held at the Santa Ana Public Schools Sports Complex.
