Join us in a fun kickoff to the 2019–2020 school year! All MCPS students and their families are invited to Westfield Wheaton for an MCPS Back-to-School Fair on Saturday, Aug. 24 from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. The event will be held on the lower level of the mall. The Back-to-School Fair is a great way to kick off the school year and learn about the school system’s programs and services, along with resources from government agencies and community partners. School system staff will be on hand to answer questions about MCPS curriculum and programs.


There will be free, fun entertainment for the whole family, including children’s activities, health screenings for adults and children, free immunizations for students in grades 7-12, giveaways and more! Shuttle buses will be provided; see the flyer for locations.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates as well—in English and Spanish. Find the Spanish Facebook page here and Spanish Twitter here.
