Dallas ISD’s PREP U Super Saturday After-School and Extracurricular Activities Fair is a one-stop shop for Dallas families to explore more than 100 out-of-school time, co-curricular and extracurricular learning opportunities and activities for children in prekindergarten through 12th grade under one roof.

The PREP U Super Saturday After-School and Extracurricular Activities Fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, at Emmett J. Conrad High School, located at 7502 Fair Oaks Ave. The event is scheduled to be outdoors and will take place rain or shine. In case of rain, it will take place inside the school. The first 500 families that attend will receive a special gift bag.

This free event is a collaboration between Dallas ISD and Dallas Afterschool, an organization formed in 2007 with a mission to improve the quality of after-school and summer programs in Dallas. During the fair, Dallas ISD will showcase its programs and a variety of agencies in the community will share information on opportunities in venues such as libraries, recreation centers, etc. Families will be able to sign up for some of these opportunities on the spot.

Families also will have access to free health screenings (blood pressure, glucose, vision) and free immunizations for children 2 months through 18 years of age, including the meningitis vaccine for high school juniors and seniors. The event will feature a family reading area, free books and resources, immigration information and access to other resources.

The Dallas ISD’s PREP U Super Saturday After-School and Extracurricular Activities Fair will also be a day for family fun and will include free food and drinks, face painting, inflatable games, a video game truck, robotics demonstrations, sports demonstrations, chess demonstrations, and the opportunity to win prizes like iPads and Beats headphones.
