Refresh BISD - Aug 18

Pre-registration is REQUIRED - Deadline is Monday, July 9, 2018
Saturday, August 18th | 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Wiley G. Thomas Coliseum - 6108 Broadway Ave. | Haltom City, TX 76117

refresh bisd haltom cityFor the past eight years, Haltom City has hosted the Annual Back to School Health Fair every July. This event provided backpacks, school supplies and community resources to Haltom City elementary and middle school students, assisting fam­ilies as they prepare for the upcoming school year. Over these last eight years our Health Fair has given over $180,000 worth of resources to our local students.

We are thrilled to announce that this year Haltom City will be joining Refresh BISD for their back to school event. Refresh BISD will serve stu­dents who are eligible for free and reduced lunch programs in all 25 elementary and middle schools in Haltom City, North Richland Hills and Richland Hills attending the Birdville Independent School District (BISD). Refresh BISD will be Saturday, August 18th, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Wiley G. Coliseum (mapped below). During Refresh BISD, there will be backpacks, school supplies, haircuts, eye exams, hot dogs, help­ful resources and plenty of fun. Refresh BISD aims to help get stu­dents ready for the school year, connect families with their community and transform our cities.

Refresh BISD began as a one-day back-to-school event in 2015 but has since evolved in to much more than that. The mission of Refresh BISD aims to help get stu­dents ready for the school year, connect families with their community and in the process transform our cities. The goal of Refresh BISD is to provide an opportunity to help families physically, relationally and spiritually. Refresh BISD, a pro­gram initiated out of the Community Enrichment Center (CEC), supports their vision of breaking the cycle of poverty and family violence in Northeast Tarrant County.

Refresh BISD online registration is now open until June, 2018. No school supplies will be delivered to school campuses after Refresh, so you must pre-register and attend to receive them.

Families Must Pre-Register During The Open Registration In Order To Attend Refresh BISD
This Is A New Requirement For Those Of You Who Have Attended Our Previous Health Fairs

It takes a community to impact our community...so if you, your church, your business or your civic group would like to be in­volved in Refresh BISD, they want to hear from you! Please con­tact them at RefreshBISD. Be sure to “Like” their Facebook page for the most updated information.

BISD Community Engagement

Volunteers Sought to Support Local Schoolchildren in BISD
http://www.birdvilleschools.net/communityengagement

bisdlogoBirdville Independent School Dis­trict (BISD) has developed a com­munity engagement office that com­municates the specific needs of each school campus and coordinates the efforts from volunteer groups. They also promote programs that benefit students and families by encouraging participation and engagement within the dis­trict. One of their main goals is to have every school adopted by a local business, church or civic organization. There are also numerous ways that individuals can support our schools through mentoring, speaking at Career Days, volunteering for campus events and much more.

They have an exciting upcoming event that you can help with...World Read Aloud Day is celebrated by millions of peo­ple in more than 100 countries. This event calls global attention to the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. In BISD, this event has been celebrated by several campuses, but in 2018 it will be celebrated by all BISD elementary school campuses! In fact, they are dedicating an entire week to this event! World Read Aloud Week is January 29 to February 2, 2018. It is their goal to have each elementary classroom visited by an adult guest reader from the community. If you’re interested in serving as a guest reader for the event, please visit www.birdvilleschools.net/communityengagement and click the "Events & Opportunities" tab.

They are also proud to work with some of our local laundro­mats in offering Laundromat Libraries. These crates of children’s books are kept on site at each participating laundromat. Chil­dren can choose books to read while they wait for their family to finish their laundry. While they would like for the books to remain onsite, so others may also read them, they understand that some readers just may not be able to put their books down! Each crate will be checked on at least once a month, when they will be refilled with more books or changed out to maintain interest.

If you’re interested in helping with the planning of World Read Aloud Day or have children’s books that you would like to do­nate to the Laundromat Libraries, email Adrienne at This email address is being protected from spambots.

$182,000 Raised for HC Students

Parks and Rec Gives Out 825 Backpacks at This Year’s Back to School Health Fair

2017 haltom city bisd back to school health fairOn July 29, 2017, the Haltom City Parks and Recreation Department (HCPRD) hosted their 8th annual Back to School Health Fair at Haltom High School. Every Haltom City elementary and middle school student was invited to this event, where they could receive a free vision screening, a free keepsake family photo, a free haircut, a free backpack, free school supplies, as well as access to all the health information from 30 vendors and sponsors. This year we saw our largest crowd ever, as 1,300 residents attended and 825 students picked up their new backpack and school supplies. The remaining backpacks and school supply packs were given to the Birdville Council of PTAs to distribute to Haltom City students who were unable to attend the Health Fair.

Christi Pruitt, Haltom City Parks and Recreation Director, said “this was our biggest turnout ever and we had a great response from vendors and community partners. It’s such a privilege to be able to give back to the students and families of our community in this way. I am so grateful we are able to raise the funds to support our local students on their educational path successfully.”

HCPRD recognized the financial needs of Haltom City families with all seven of their elementary schools designated as Title 1 campuses and 80% of their students on free and reduced lunch programs. They raised over $27,000 for this year’s Health Fair, and have raised approximately $182,000 over the eight years since they began the program. The Haltom Stampede, CARFEST and the Mayor’s Cup Golf Tournament are the three annual fundraising events they host to raise all the money that assists the local students and families at the Health Fair.

Special thanks to our sponsors for this year’s fair: Amerigroup, Frost Bank, Waste Connections, Birdville Baptist Church & Northeast Ministries, and Five Star Ford. A very special thanks to the Haltom City Police Department for purchasing the 900 backpacks for this year’s event. We would also like to thank the local business sponsors, non-profit agencies, civic groups, local churches and volunteers that make this event possible.
