Family Resource Fair on Dec. 5
Family Resource Fair on Dec. 5
Blaine School District
Friday, November 16, 2018

Blaine School District will be hosting the first annual Family Resource Fair on Wednesday, December 5th, in the High School Cafeteria from 5:00-7:30pm. This exciting event will provide an opportunity for our families to come and learn about resources available in our community. There will be many local organizations on site to discuss opportunities and support for adults and children of all ages. While parents and caregivers are visiting with resource providers, activities for kids of all ages will be provided, including face painting with our high school cheerleaders and derby car racing on the local Scouting unit's track. Free pizza will be available, and there will be a raffle and prizes!

Starting at 5:00pm, there will be 30-minute presentations, for parents and teens, rotated throughout the fair in the High School Theater. A "Suicide Prevention" session will be presented by the District's Mental Health Counselor, Kaatri Jones. Also, Jamie Shannon, Life Coach for Teens, will provide a "Social Media Awareness" presentation.

A full list of participating organizations is provided below, and will be updated as applicable. We encourage all families to take advantage of this opportunity to connect with resource providers, as well as with other families. Bring your family and your neighbors for a fun evening together!
