New FWISD Story Time Event Location Serves Families with Registration Needs

They say, “Getting lost in a good book is good for you.” The Family and Community Outreach and Marketing Department witnessed this firsthand as dozens of children clapped and cheered for their new literary heroes while participating in the wildly successful Bilingual Story Time event sponsored by the La Gran Biblioteca.


With a new location in the La Gran Plaza Mall, this two-day event, held July 19 and Aug. 2, from 3 – 6 p.m., was filled with stories, songs, and kid-friendly activities. Families also received free books from FWISD staff and the ability to obtain on-the-spot online registration assistance for the new school year.


“Events like these help us interact with families on a personal level. We want parents to know they have District staff here to listen, provide resources, and assist them with questions,” said Richard Johnson, Communications Specialist.


For families still seeking family fun or have questions before the first day of school Aug. 15 – the Fort Worth ISD has just what you need.


We hope to see you at these two additional back-to-school events:


  • The Diamond Hill Back to School Resource Fair at Diamond Hill HS TODAY, Aug. 5, from 4 – 7 p.m.
  • The Race to Register Family Fun Day Student Enrollment and Resource Fair at Polytechnic HS Aug. 13 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
