Operation Back to School
Join USO-Metro for a fun day of back to school preparations! Operation Back to School is a fun one-day program for military children ages 5 - 12 and it is the perfect opportunity to meet new friends. Laughter and excitement can be seen as children participate in activities that incorporate core subjects such as reading, math, science, history, and art. To top it off, before they leave they will receive a bag stuffed with NEW school supplies! Parents will watch their children get excited about learning, meet new friends, and leave with great school supplies.
NOTE: This program is open to ALL branches of service, ALL ranks, and to ALL Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve families in our service area! Children MUST BE PRESENT to receive their school supplies.
The event will be held at two locations from 4:00PM - 7:00PM.
The event will take place INDOORS, but be sure to bring your water, sunglasses, and sunscreen as the weather is hot and you may have to wait in line during check-in.
This year’s event will take place at Fort Myer and Joint Base Andrews simultaneously.
