Second annual Back to School Fair to be held Aug. 4 at Holt High School
The Wentzville School District, in conjunction with the Wentzville Chamber of Commerce and the Lake Saint Louis/Dardenne Prairie Chamber of Commerce, will host its second annual Back to School Fair for Wentzville School District families. The fair is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 4, at Holt High School. The event is free for district families and will feature more than 70 vendors, free school supplies, games and fun activities for children.
In addition, MoCHIP (Missouri Child Identification Program) representatives will be on hand providing free child ID kits. The kits include a disk with the child’s information, digital photograph, digital fingerprints and vital information necessary for authorities in the event of abduction. Also included in the kit are a dental bite impression and two laminated ID cards. Parents are encouraged to fill out the MoCHIP paperwork prior to the fair to save time, which can be found at: http://wentzville.k12.mo.us/file.php/32/misc/MoChip_information_form.pdf.
Last year’s event drew more than 3,000 people and thousands of dollars of school supplies were given away.
“The Back to School Fair is designed to bring together local businesses, community groups and our district families in one place to share valuable information, discounts and free school supplies in a fun and festive atmosphere,” said Superintendent of Schools Terry Adams. “It is beneficial to our families and our community and it’s a tremendous way to kick off the new school year.”
The event is free, but families are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate at the door to Operation Food Search which serves local families in need.
