HUSD annual School Expo set for Saturday
It is that time of year again! The Humboldt Unified School District (HUSD) is hosting its annual School Expo.
The 2019 School Expo will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23, in the Entertainment District right outside of Freedom Station. It is free of charge. There will be more than 24 booths with information for parents and guardians.
All 10 schools, including our Bright Futures Preschool, will be on hand with information on what their schools have to offer your students. This includes information on what programs each school has, as well as extra-curricular activities such as sports and art clubs. There also will be information on our upcoming kindergarten tours.
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 information available for anyone interested in joining one of their teams next year.
In addition to all preK-12 schools, the HUSD Transportation Department will also be at the event to answer bus and routing questions. It will even have a bus parked in the area for parents and kids to check out.
If you have questions about your student’s lunch account, the HUSD Food and Nutrition department will have a booth highlighting its menus and sharing some delicious fruit samples. Staff also will explain how to register for the Myschool Bucks online program so parents and guardians can manage their student lunch accounts from their computers or smartphones.
HUSD has also invited its after-school program to share information about school site locations and fees.
Superintendent Dan Streeter states, “The Expo provides a great way to see all of the great opportunities available in the Humboldt Unified School District in one place. 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. Our partners work in conjunction with our schools and families to bring additional resources to our students.
We have will area Girl Scouts represented to share information about troops and events, and there may even be some cookies for sale 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 their mentor services as well as adult volunteers interested in becoming a Big. What a great program for our children and a great service opportunity.
There will be student performances from various school groups, and the drum line from the high school will make an appearance.
Each booth will have bingo cards to pick up and have stamped by staff. When parents visit four booths, their child can bring the bingo card into Freedom Station to receive a wristband for free attractions inside. 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!
Come out and learn what HUSD has to offer your children all while enjoying games and attractions. Thank you to our sponsors In the Game/Freedom Station and Hero Party Rentals for all of their hard work in helping with this event.
