GALVESTON — Galveston Independent School District will have its annual Back to School Fair from 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 12 in the cafeteria of Ball High School, 4115 Ave. O.

The fair will serve as a one-stop destination for parents, students and community members to get everything done for the first day of school. Each year, the event attracts hundreds of attendees.

The Back to School Fair features nearly 70 different booths and vendors. The fair is a great opportunity for parents to register their children for the new school year at the prekindergarten and elementary grades, sign up for school uniforms and supplies and apply for child nutrition plans and with GISD’s transportation department. Entertainment will be provided by local spirit groups.

School supply or uniform donations are being accepted by the GISD Discovery Club. To make a donation, contact Mary Patrick, 409-766-5172 or
