Sharpen those pencils! Crack open those books! Here comes children’s happy looks!

As kids prepare for those school days to begin again, Borough President Adams, along with representatives from Kings Plaza, state Sen. Kevin Parker (D–Flatbush), and councilmen Alan Maisel (D–Canarsie), Vincent Gentile (D–Bay Ridge), and Mark Treyger (D–Coney Island), made it a little easier by handing out backpacks full of much-needed school supplies.

The giveaway at Kings Plaza on Aug. 19 provided more than 1,500 backpacks chock full of supplies — including new pencils just itching for some ’riting and ’rhithmatic in crisp notebooks — distributed to children in need.

“Everything needed in order to start the school year off on the right step,” said the Beep. “Starting the school year off right helps minimize academic stress, lessens anxieties, and empowers youth with a strong sense of self-worth,” he added.

The beep explained, “Knowing this, Kings Plaza is doing its part by helping economically disadvantaged, school-aged children get prepared for the upcoming school year by providing essential back-to-school supplies.”

Standing O is sending a great big backpack of thanks to the folks at Kings Plaza for helping to make this a Standing O year for our students.

Kings Plaza Shopping Center [Avenue U and Flatbush Avenue in Marine Park, (718) 253–6844].
