The fair at James Elementary fair will be rescheduled for 4 to 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 2 at the school. The event is designed for the James community to address concerns related to changes in the school’s boundaries.

The event will also feature food, carnival games and the magician “Razzle The Dazzler.” Informative activities such as language proficiency tests, science activities, and library book giveaways and card registration will also be offered.

The fair at Garfield Elementary will be rescheduled for 2 to 6 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 16 at the school. Students, families and community members are invited to enjoy carnival games and delicious snacks, informative community booths and vendors, and important information about enrollment, free preschool and K-8 Neighborhood Schools.

Both events are free and open to the public. These fairs are an effort by the Kansas City, Missouri School District to bring important services and information directly to the community.
