Sign up for mayor’s Back to School Fest

Registration opens on Monday for Mayor Sylvester Turner’s Back to School Fest, an annual event that helps elementary students across the city access the resources they need for a successful school year.

Pre-registered children who are in grades kindergarten through fifth grade and reside in the City of Houston are eligible to participate. Attendees will receive backpacks filled with school supplies and also will have access to eye exams, vaccinations, lessons in dental health and hygiene, and more.

The event is free, thanks to the generosity of Shell and other sponsors working with the mayor’s office.
