Students can enjoy breakfast provided by Warsaw Community Schools from 8:00 to 10:00 am as well as haircuts by Fiesta Salons throughout the day. Tools for School is an opportunity for CCS and the community to come together and help Kosciusko County students put their best foot forward in their next school year.
