The Moss Point School District - along with the Moss Point Alumni Association - wants to ensure our students have everything that they need to start the school year off," said Ja'Leasa Walden, MSPD Communications Director. "This event has become a way to do that."
The rally will be held on Monday, July 31 at Magnolia Middle School Gym from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. In addition to classroom necessities, the free event will feature food, music, and fun.
