District H Back to School Fairs & Giveaways
It's that time again! You can prepare your family for the start of school by attending one of these District H events, which feature backpacks, school supplies, health resources, screenings, and more.

Council Member Cisneros understands that some families are unable to attend the various back to school events so her backpack initiative is unique in guaranteeing that every elementary school child will have a backpack on the first day of school.
