Update for 2021
The 2021 Back-to-School Fair is cancelled for 2021.
We have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Back-to-School Fair again this year.
While the state has "reopened," schools must still adhere to state guidelines which require 3- and 6-feet of social distancing for any activities on District property. This would be very difficult to manage at an event as big as our Back-to-School Fair.
The Bremerton School District hopes to bring the event back in 2022.

Because the Bremerton School District is providing most of the school supplies for 2021-22 using COVID funding, we are not accepting donations at this time. We encourage you to consider donating school supplies to the Marvin Williams Center or Coffee Oasis for their Back-to-School events, or donating non-perishable food or hygiene items to Stand-Up For Kids or Bremerton Backpack Brigade.
The following is a list of food items most needed by the Backpack Brigade:
The most used item (sent out every week) is canned protein, including chicken, tuna, chili, refried beans, peanut butter, Vienna sausage, salmon, etc.
- We also send home some of these every week:
- boxed Mac and cheese (not the microwavable kind) most weeks.
- pastas or rice and sauces to make them a meal
- boxed cold cereal or microwavable oatmeal packets
- canned vegetables
- “Helper” type boxed meals
- instant potatoes
- pudding cups/granola bars/small packets of cookies or crackers
Information for Community Resource Fair participants
We are sad to announce that we cannot hold our Community Resource Fair at our Back-to-School Fair this year.
We have two opportunities for local community organizations to provide information to our students this fall (in addition to PeachJar, our flyer distribution service which is an option year-round).
