Sedalia School District 200 held its annual Student Resource Fair on Tuesday in the FEMA Building at Smith-Cotton Junior High School. The event is an opportunity for students and their families to learn about social service and outreach agencies that provide a multitude of assistance options and youth-oriented activities.
This year’s fair was the biggest so far, with 35 vendors, including Pettis County Health Center, the Boy Scouts of America, Pettis County Community Partnership, Center for Human Services and others. Nearly 300 people were in attendance, and they enjoyed free pizza and hot dogs, drinks, popcorn and cotton candy; students were able to play games and win prizes.
Dr. Nancy Scott, assistant superintendent, said: “This resource fair was the largest one to date. We appreciate all the vendors that took time to come and offer our students and families opportunities
provided in the community. We are very fortunate to have such a giving and caring community.” Photos courtesy of Sedalia School District 200.
