Back-2-School Resource and Enrollment Fair for military families coming Saturday

The San Diego Unified School District, in partnership with the Navy and Marine Corps School Liaison Programs, is holding its fifth annual Back-2-School Resource and Enrollment Fair for military families new to San Diego from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, August 3, at Farb Middle School, 4880 La Cuenta Drive (92124).Graduate

Each summer, many military families move to San Diego after our schools have closed. Our Fair allows them not only to enroll their children in school, but to learn about local district, military, and community resources. Families can explore neighborhood and school choice options, sign up for free or reduced price lunch, find out about many of our district's programs, and get connected with key military and community supports.

San Diego Unified and military representatives will be present to meet with families. All of our past community exhibitors have been invited to send printed information that will be made available to families. All families will be invited to the free lunch provided by Food Services and sponsored by SDG&E. Newly enrolled students will also have the opportunity to win prizes and receive free backpacks.
