The Watford City Parent Teacher Organization is helping families mark a few things off their back-to-school lists.

COVID-19 has put a lot of families in tough spots finically, which is why the PTO is supplying its District One K-8th grade with the majority of its school supplies.

This includes notebooks and pencils to folders and paper.

A member of the organization tells KX News this effort will help more than a thousand kids in the district.

“It’s amazing. It’s a great feeling. It’s just super exciting. It feels great to just be able to give back to the community and to the children and know that it’s one less worry for the parents and for the community so that the kids can just go back to school and have sort of a smooth go in with everything going on,” President for the Watford City PTO Natalie Garcia said.
