Annual Health Fair and Back-to-School Rally a hit with families

Garland ISD’s community recently came together to help district students get ready for the 2018-19 school year. On Aug. 11, GISD partnered with the NAACP Garland Unit to host the 16th annual Health Fair and Back-to-School Rally at the Curtis Culwell Center. Thousands of district students received free school supplies and clothing. Even more received free health screenings, low-cost immunizations and information about GISD and community resources.
