CPS Community Cookout: The Back-To-School Edition

Summer may soon be coming to an end, but Cincinnati Public Schools is ringing in the school year with a bang! Join CPS for a day of food, family and fun at our Back-to-School Community Cookout from 11 a.m.– 3 p.m. Sunday, August 7, at Washington Park, 1230 Elm St., Cincinnati, OH 45202.

Families will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from their school, get resources and information from CPS district teams and community partners, plus enjoy free giveaways while supplies last. 

For families within the district who are interested in enrolling their children in a CPS school but have yet to join the CPS family, our Customer Care team will be onsite to register your children for the first day of school!

Students can also swing by SCPA to complete their sports physicals before the school year begins!  

The Community Cookout will also feature entertainment from CPS music groups and a CPS Alumni DJ battle. In addition, participating families can indulge in a host of multicultural food selections from attending vendors. Grab a meal ticket at our information booth to receive a free select meal from participating food trucks while supplies last. 

Special thanks to Dream Builders University for being our Premier Sponsor! We look forward to seeing you at Washington Park!
