HUSD celebrates schools with Expo
District, community partners will offer information, fun at March 3 event
It is that time of year again! The Humboldt Unified School District (HUSD) is hosting its annual School Expo.
The 2018 School Expo will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 3. The event is free and will take place in the Entertainment District right outside of Freedom Station, Prescott Valley.
During the expo, a live remote broadcast will take place from Magic 99.1 with a prize wheel for a chance to win great items! There will be over 24 booths with information for parents and guardians. All 10 HUSD schools, including the Bright Futures Preschool, will be on hand with information on what the schools have to offer.
This includes information on what programs each school has, as well as extra-curricular activities such as sports and art clubs. Each school will also have teachers and staff on hand to answer questions about their classrooms and curriculum.
Bradshaw Mountain High School and the BMHS Athletics Department will have activity information available for anyone interested in joining one of their teams next year.
In addition to our schools, the HUSD Transportation Department will also be at the event to answer bus and routing questions. They will even have a bus on hand for parents and kids to check out.
If you also have questions about your student’s lunch account, the HUSD Food and Nutrition Department will have a booth highlighting their menus and sharing some delicious fruit samples. They will also explain how to register for the “Myschool Bucks” online program so parents and guardians can manage their student’s lunch accounts from their computers or smartphones.
HUSD has also invited its after-school program to share information about school site locations and fees.
“The expo provides a great way to see all of the great opportunities available in the Humboldt Unified School District in one place,” Superintendent Dan Streeter said. “This is really a celebration of our educational community for future, current, and past students, their families, and community members.”
Some of HUSD’s community partners will also be on hand to share information regarding their agencies. HUSD’s partners work in conjunction with the schools and families to bring additional resources to students. For example, area Girl Scouts will be represented to share information about troops and events, and there may even be some cookies at their booth. Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters (YBBBS) will be sharing about its program. YBBBS has programs within HUSD schools helping to build mentoring relationships. They are looking for kids interested in YBBBS mentor services as well as adult volunteers interested in becoming a Big.
There also will be student performances from various school groups and the drum line from the high school making an appearance.
Each booth will be handing out bingo cards to pick up and have stamped by staff. When parents visit four booths, your child can bring the bingo card to the Freedom Station booth to receive a wristband for free attractions inside. Freedom Station will also be featuring 99-cent mini-golf during the expo.
There is fun for the whole family including free bouncy houses outside for the little kids courtesy of Hero Party Rentals and free food too at the expo! Come out and learn what HUSD has to offer your children all while enjoying games and attractions.
The district thanks its sponsors: Freedom Station and Hero Party Rentals for all of their hard work in helping with this event. For more information, follow HUSD on Facebook or visit humboldtunified.com.
