Free festival to help kids, families get ready for school - 08/12/15
It's time to get ready to go back to school! To help students and families prepare, Vancouver Public Schools is hosting its second annual back-to-school-readiness festival.

Go Ready!
Wednesday, Aug. 19, 2015
10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Hudson's Bay High School, 1601 E. McLoughlin Blvd., Vancouver, WA 98663
This event is free and open to all VPS students and their families.

The festival will feature food; entertainment; family-friendly activities; and information about early learning, counseling, health care, housing and other resources. It also will provide free immunizations, haircuts and gently used clothing. Approximately 50 district partners from the community will be in attendance to provide information and materials.

Go Ready is organized by the district's network of Family-Community Resource Centers, which provides support for families all school year long. The event is designed to serve the district's growing number of students and families eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Eligibility for subsidized meals is one indicator of poverty, which can affect readiness to learn.

Go Ready is a 2015 first-place Magna Award winner.
