Strive for 5 Kick-Off to Include Resource Fair

(July 18, 2018) – A community outreach event is planned for this year's Strive for 5 attendance campaign kick-off. The St. Joseph School District's partners in education have been invited to join the district in hosting a community resource fair on August 9, 2018 from 4-7 p.m. at Hillyard Technical Center.

Thanks to our partners, free hot dogs and chips will be available to those who attend along with other giveaways and prizes.

The event is being offered as a way to connect school district families with the resources they need to improve the SJSD's rate of chronic absenteeism.

The Strive for 5 program and its partnerships helped the district increase attendance by more than three percent in 2017-18. The district is on a mission to increase attendance by another three percent by the end of the 2018-19 school year.
