A community partnership with Abundant Life Foursquare Church and The Bremerton Schools & Alumni Foundation
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.
We will not be doing large-scale school supply distribution events this year. We will have a limited supply of backpacks and pencil boxes available in the fall for families who need assistance. Please contact your child's school in August about availability. Learn more here.
