8/6/19 BSD Family Update

  • Greetings, Bremerton School District Families!

    It is hard to believe it is August already!  We hope you are having a safe and happy summer! 

     

    We are one week away from our Districtwide Back-to-School Fair and wanted to provide you with a few important details about this fun, annual event. 

     

      • The event is from 5 - 7 p.m. at Mountain View Middle School.
      • The event is a community partnership with the District, Bremerton Schools & Alumni Foundation and Abundant Life Foursquare Church and is totally free and open to all Bremerton School District students (preschool - 12th grade) and their families. All BSD staff are also invited to attend! 
      • Abundant Life will be giving away 850 bags of school supplies at the event.
      • Peninsula Community Health Services will be offering sports physicals and immunizations during the event.  
        • Walk-ins welcome but appointments are available during the Back-to-School Fair. Call 360-377-3776 to make an appointment.
        • Your child does not have to be a current PCHS patient to get a physical or immunizations during the event. 
        • Save time by completing the papework and returning it to PCHS prior to the event, or bringing it with you to the event.
        • Note:  Peninsula Community Health Services is opening a new school-based clinic at Mountain View Middle School this school year. Learn more here! 
      • Parking for the event is in the front of Mountain View Middle School. The neighboring churches on Perry Avenue (Emmanuel Lutheran, Bremerton Korean Presbyterian and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) have all generously offered their parking lots for overflow parking. We appreciate their support!
      • We’ve got more than 30 community organizations and businesses participating in our Community Resource Fair. Check out our list of vendors on the right! >>
      • We’ve got a bouncy house, a book giveaway, and STEM activities provided by PSNS.
      • New this year:  We are having a “Floss Dance Party” at 6 p.m. sponsored by Kitsap Kid’s Dentistry.  All kids who participate will get a prize
      • The event is on - rain or shine.  Shade is limited and it could be hot so please plan accordingly (bottled water, sunscreen). 

     

    We’d like to give a shout out to all the local businesses and organizations who have supported this year’s event. We greatly appreciate your support!


    Be sure to check out our event Facebook page.  

    We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday, August 13!
