Melbourne Square Welcomes Brevard County Community Back to School

Memorable events at town center celebrate start of a new school year

Melbourne, FL July 6, 2021 – The start of a new school year can bring about excitement, whether through reconnecting with friends or preparing for a year full of new things to learn. Whether students and teachers are reentering the classroom for the first time, continuing to learn virtually, or have remained in-person throughout the past year, Melbourne Square is providing the community with many different ways to celebrate the fresh start of a new school year. Through a selection of upcoming events, guests will be able to savor the last moments of summer and prepare for school in style.

“We are excited to prepare kids, families, and educators in the Brevard community for this coming school year,” said Alisha Kish, Marketing Director at Melbourne Square. “This school year will be especially memorable as many students return to in-person learning, and at Melbourne Square, we want to support guests and offer ways to celebrate the start of an exciting new year in the classroom.”

As teachers transition back into the classroom, Melbourne Square will show them some love through Teacher Appreciation Day on August 7 from 11AM – 1PM. Educators can enjoy teacher-exclusive promotions and discounts at retail spaces. Plus, the first 100 Teachers will receive a tote bag filled with goodies from our tenants, live music with 98.5 The Beach, local vendors, and more.

Children will also have the opportunity to celebrate going back to school through the KidX Club® Back to School Party on August 7 from 12PM – 2PM with Mad Science.

Dillard’s will showcase their Back to School fashion with a children’s fashion show that will begin at 1PM near Women’s Dillard’s and the Children’s Play Area.

To help local students and educators prepare for the upcoming year, Melbourne Square will host a School Supply Drive from May 1 – Aug 6.
