Pack the Backpack!

An exciting note from Kix 101.1

It’s that time of year again! It’s time for Iowa’s Best Country, KIX 101.1 & Central Office Supply, a division of Minute Man, in Marshalltown to team up & PACK THE BACKPACK for local area teachers! Don’t forget to remind ALL your teachers, parents & even students to nominate those teachers who go above & beyond to help out their students, classrooms, other teachers or the entire school! Every month we will pick one teacher & that teacher will receive a $101 in school supplies of their choice from Central Office Supply! Nominating a teacher is easy, just go to & click on the Pack the Backpack banner. There you will find all the info you need to submit a teacher. So let’s all team up & help our area teachers! We look forward to all this year’s entries.
