  • Family FestWaco ISD Family Fest

    On Saturday, August 10, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Waco ISD will host the 8th Annual Waco ISD Family Fest at two sites: Waco High School and University High School.

    2019-2020 Registration

    Family Fest is your last chance to pre-register for the 2019-2020 school year. Regular registration starts in July.

    This year, if you registered for WACO ISD before Family Fest, or if you register at Family Fest, you will be presented with a voucher for one FREE backpack stocked with school supplies

    When a parent registers their children at Family Fest, the parent can then take the proof of enrollment to the booth/table of the school in which the child is enrolled and receive the voucher for a backpack (after visiting with the staff, of course!).

    For students who have been registered prior to Family Fest, campus personnel will verify enrollment and provide backpack vouchers at Family Fest.

    All vouchers must be redeemed for backpacks at Family Fest. It is therefore imperative that you attend the Family Fest location for your school.

    • Trojan Feeder students must attend the UHS Fest.
    • Lion Feeder students must attend the WHS Fest.

    As with the previous Family Fest events, the goals for this back to school event focus on:

    • Building relationships with our families and boosting parent involvement,
    • Providing information and education on school and community resources,
    • Offering health screenings and immunizations,
    • Engaging families in fun learning activities, and
    • Getting everyone ready for a new school year.


What is Family Fest?

  • Family Fest is a back-to-school event
    held exclusively
    for Waco ISD students and parents
    at two locations: 

    University High School & 
    Waco High School.


    Family Fest is a great chance for students and parents to get the new school year off to a great start. Learn more about your child's school and the Waco ISD departments that support the educational process.

    We’ll also have vision and dental screenings, blood pressure and cholesterol checks, and an immunization clinic! Bring an insurance card and driver license if your child needs shots.

    Plus you can enjoy games, entertainment and lots of give-aways.


    Come out to Family Fest and celebrate families with Waco ISD!
