NEWS RELEASE -- Military families invited to schools' Saturday enrollment fair

NEWS RELEASE from the San Diego Unified School District, August 2, 2013


SAN DIEGO -- 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).

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

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.
