    Admissions Fair

    Nearly 1,000 people visited the 2018 Admissions Fair on Jan. 20, at Asa Mercer International Middle School.

    Through the event, in its third consecutive year, the district helped families register new students as well as answer questions about the registration process; school choice; option, alternative and service schools; highly capable and special education services.

    "Multiple parents shared how helpful it was to learn about the alternative and service schools and loved that there were students from Nova to talk about the different programs," said Faauu Manu, Seattle Public Schools Office of Admissions manager.

    During the event, families also were able to receive flu shots, snack on fruit and light refreshments and pick up free backpacks, scarves and gloves for their children.
