West Orange – Cove CISD invites all District parents, students, and the community to attend the WOCCISD Back-to-School Expo, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 7 at the West Orange – Stark High School cafeteria.

“We are looking forward to an incredible new school year for the students of West Orange – Cove. Our Expo is a district-wide kick-off event for the 2010-2011 school year. We really want to encourage our parents, students, and community to come out and see some of the unique offerings that are available in our district,” Anitrea Goodwin, executive director of federal programs and special initiatives said.

Each of the four WO-C campuses will have booths set up which will share information regarding their programs and activities. School supply lists, enrollment forms, free and reduced lunch forms, bus information, and athletic forms will be available for pickup and completion.

“We also plan to have information available relative to our extracurricular activities, clubs, and organizations,” Goodwin said.

Parents can also learn more about the district’s after school program, 21st ACE (Afterschool Centers on Education).

A fashion show featuring WO-C standardized dress will be presented at 11 a.m.
“Another very important aspect of this Expo is community involvement. For those community members that are interested in volunteering or mentoring in our schools, we ask that you join us as well. Prospective volunteers and mentors can complete the required paperwork and also get a jump start for this upcoming school year,” Goodwin said.

Immunization information will also be available.

“The Orange County Health Department will also be in attendance. We want everyone to save this date and plan to attend or participate in this exciting event,” she said.

District booster clubs are invited to participate in the event, as well as local merchants who carry standardized dress clothing. Community agencies and organizations which extend learning or provide parental support services are also invited. Clubs, agencies or organizations wishing to participate may contact Anitrea Goodwin at 882-5462 by July 15.

The Back-to-School Expo is sponsored by the WOCCISD Parent Involvement Advisory Committee.
