MPS' 2nd Annual CHECK Fair

On Saturday, Oct. 30 the Mesa Public Schools is hosting their 2nd annual Community Health Education Connections for Kids (CHECK) Fair from 10am - noon at the Mesa Education Center (formerly Powell Junior High), located at 855 W. 8th Avenue in Mesa. (SW corner of Extension & 8th Avenue) Just a few of their features / vendors include:
  • Maze for children
  • Health screenings
  • Tooth doctor
  • Fire & police departments
  • Free books & kids' storytime
  • Prizes
  • Info on Headstart, AHCCCS, DES, etc.
  • Answers to questions such as what to do if you lose your job and don't have money for food, and how to keep your children in the same school even if you have to move across town.
  • And much, MUCH more!
Best of all - it's *FREE*!!!

So while there are so many activities going on next weekend to choose from, I'd definitely recommend placing this one as a top, worthwhile priority. They really have a lot to offer - way more than what's in this little ditty. See a quick video clip about it here or go to this site for more info. Yes, it's worth your time to watch the video even if you aren't sure if you're going. You may know someone else that would benefit from this valuable information. In the meantime, happy hauntings!

PS - I for one think it's a fabulous idea to have a tooth doctor there. If your little one has never been to the dentist, this may be a great way to get your child acquainted with one... especially as you might be needing one sooner than later if your child pulls in a hefty harvest of Halloween treats.
