February 19, 2015 (Sacramento):  Children who are the best prepared for school perform the best academically. To help get kids ready for the rigors of today’s classrooms, the Sacramento City Unified School District is sponsoring a School Readiness Fair on Saturday, February 28.

Hundreds of families are expected to attend the fair to take advantage of such free services as health screenings and dental exams. Parents will also be offered information on kindergarten enrollment, pre-school enrollment, pre-kindergarten summer camp and community resources. Free books to encourage reading will be distributed.
