Back to School Fair

Event Highlights

  • Health Screenings: Free health screenings for students and families to ensure a healthy start to the school year.
  • School Supplies: Distribution of essential school supplies to help students be prepared and confident.
  • Free Haircuts: Students are offered free haircuts on a first-come, first-served basis. Please make sure that hair is clean, washed, and free of products.
  • Family Activities: Fun and engaging activities for the entire family, promoting community spirit and togetherness.
  • Vendors: A variety of local vendors providing valuable information, resources, and services to the community.

Our fair supports students and families on their journey to success. We understand the importance of starting the school year off right, which is why we provide essential school supplies and assistance to ensure that every student feels prepared and empowered to excel.

Last year, our fair offered a range of services, including COVID vaccinations, diabetes screenings, dental check-ups, heart health assessments, immunizations, sports physicals, and vision screenings. We also provided access to various community resources, including haircuts (first come, first served) and a selection of library books to promote literacy and a love for reading.

Keep an eye out for updates on this year's event!

We're continually working to enhance the fair and provide even more support to our community. Stay tuned for announcements regarding new services, activities, and opportunities to get involved. Together, we can make this year's Wyandotte County Back to School Fair our best one yet!
