Southside ISD is currently planning its annual Wellness Extravaganza, under the sponsorship of SISD’s School Health Advisory Council, for our district which is located in one of the fastest growing areas of South Bexar County. Last year more than sixty non-profit exhibitors participated in our event which showcases healthcare, community services, and educational resources to our community. Our community residents and our district students always look forward to this exciting event. For many of our residents, this is the only time they get to receive this wealth of information because of the distance they have to travel to receive any of these services. Many returning and new exhibitors will be available, entertainment and activities for all children will be conducted throughout the five hour fair. This year, SISD will host our second annual walkathon for our community from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. This will give us a great start before the wellness fair begins at 10:00 a.m. and ends at 12:00 p.m. We will also have a live Tejano band and parent sessions during and after the health fair. Our Wellness Extravaganza is a vital part of our commitment to delivering resources that support our coordinated school health program. Southside ISD and SHAC would formally like to invite your organization to participate as an exhibitor in this year’s event. The final date for our wellness fair has been formalized.
