Special Education Resource Fair Coming Soon!

March 2, 2012 at 4:11 PM 4 comments

Las Campanas Compadres has accepted an invitation to be represented at a table at the “Third Annual Santa Fe Public Schools 2012 Special Education Resource Fair.”

100 vendors who provide services or activities in our community for people with special needs have been invited to attend this year’s resource fair.

This year the Resource Fair will be on March 26, 2012, at Aspen Community Magnet School, 450 La Madera, Santa Fe, NM.  It will be from 4:30 – 6:30 pm. (Aspen Community Magnet School was once Alameda Junior High for the “old-timers” of Santa Fe, who may not recognize the new school name.)

The resource fair is a lively event for community groups and agencies to share information with Parents, Students, Grandparents, Guardians, Teachers, Administrators, and Paraprofessionals  It is an excellent place for people who may be new in town to see what is available in the Santa Fe area to benefit their special needs children and family members. There is no fee for exhibitors to have a table. Exhibitors are asked, however, to provide an item or a gift certificate for a door prize. In addition to door prizes, many tables provide useful “freebies” for the attendees.

Many thanks to Las Campanas Compadres instructors, Georgia Smith and Dave Caldwell, who have manned the LCC table for both years the event has taken place. Usually, a couple of LCC students and a handful of LCC parents mingle with the crowd and tell interested table attendees about LCC’s free riding and swimming programs. It is common for Las Campanas Compadres fun to also be illustrated with a laptop presentation, a photo album, and business cards with the LCC website address. This year LCC will also proudly share the links to this blog and 2011 SFPS Resource Fairthe LCC Facebook page, and let people know about the upcoming September 3rd Mini Triathlon.

    I love attending the resource fair. We (Caitlin and I) usually work between two school related booths, but are sure to go hang out with all the great people at the LCC table.

    Thanks for all the great blogs!

      It would be great if we had more parents and volunteers drop by that day just to tell newcomers about LCC. Thanks for always supporting LCC’s events Liz!

    Smart-looking table in the photo. Glad to hear that LCC will be participating in this event. You’ve got lots of material (and press!) to put on yet another successful outreach event. BTW when did Alameda become a magnet school???
