Back to School Fair

The Start of a New School Year Brings Excitement 

#DeISDb2sf2019 - tag us if you are coming to the event!

Back to school season is always bittersweet. It marks the end of summer fun and the excitement of a new school year. The 2019 DeSoto ISD Back to School Fair will be held on Saturday, August 3, from 9 a.m. to noon at DeSoto High School, 600 Eagle Drive.

This year’s event will help 2,000 pre-registered DeSoto ISD students prepare for the new school year with school supplies. All area students can partake in free immunizations from Dallas County Health and Human Services (the only BSW school fair to provide free DCHHS shots!), along with live entertainment, game, prizes and much more! In addition, athletes will be able to complete physicals with Methodist Charlton Hospital as well as other health screenings by local agencies, community services, and social service resources will be available to families in attendance. Please join us for a full day of family fun.

Only students enrolled with DeSoto ISD for the 2018-19 school year can pre-register and receive supply packs. Students will be verified by name and school in the district database.

All current (2018-19) DeSoto ISD students are eligible to participate in the DeSoto ISD Back to School Fair supplies give-away. Upon completion of registration, a voucher for supplies is given to pre-registrants to receive an elementary or secondary set for each verified child.
