School Funding Rally March 16

Reserve a Seat on a Charter Bus to Jackson

A rally for public school funding is being held at the Capitol in Jackson next Thursday, March 16. Great news – a very generous public school supporter has offered to charter a bus or van to transport folks from the Tupelo-Lee County area to the Capitol for the rally and back.

This rally is really super important. It’s a chance to show your legislators that parents, educators, and citizens support public schools and expect your legislators to cast votes in support of public schools, as well. We’re hoping you can come and bring some friends – kids are welcome!

Here’s the bus information:

  • 6:45 a.m. Arrive at the Ballard Park parking lot (in front of Parks & Rec offices) and board bus

  • 7:00 a.m. Bus departs for Jackson

  • 10:15 a.m. Drop off at Capitol for rally

  • 12:00 p.m. Lunch on your own (food trucks on site & many restaurants in walking distance)

  • 1:45 p.m. Board bus for return trip

  • 2:00 p.m. Bus departs for Tupelo

  • 5:15 p.m. Bus arrives in Tupelo

You can get more details about the Seat at the Table rally for public school funding here.

Send an email to to let us know if you can come and how many folks (adults and children) you’ll be bringing (we need a headcount to make sure we provide enough bus/van seats).

Thanks so much for your support of public schools!
