Four South Side schools will welcome neighbors from their communities this Saturday to showcase the academic programs they offer and promote the social, health and legal services that are available to them through partnerships with the El Paso Independent School District.
The “United as One!/¡Unidos Como Uno!” will feature information on educational opportunities at Bowie High School, Guillen Middle School and Hart and Zavala elementary schools.
The event also will have more than 60 booths from agencies that provide health, housing, employment, legal and insurance services to the residents of that area.
The fair is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, at Bowie High School, 801 S. San Marcial. A City of El Paso proclamation will be read and presented at 12:30 p.m.
Attendees will get a glimpse of the efforts EPISD is making to create Community Schools – a concept that incorporates social and community services into neighborhood schools. These services are available not just to the student, but also their families.
The event is sponsored by EPISD, the El Paso Federation of Teachers and Support Personnel, United Way and Project VIDA.
