SAN ANTONIO – Spurs Sports & Entertainment hosted students, parents and teachers at its Back to School Bash on Saturday.

K-12 students also received free resources and services, like vaccines, vision checks, dental screenings and haircuts.
“Access to proper resources for families is pivotal to fostering meaningful learning and teaching spaces,” said Dr. Kara Allen, chief impact officer for SS&E.
“We are honored to unite our community and partners in this way and to extend support to local students, caregivers and teachers who we hope will soon embark on the start of the new school year both confident and prepared to grow together,” Allen said.
