Marysville Special Education PTSA presents second 'Resource Fair' Oct. 19

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Special Education PTSA's Oct. 19 Resource Fair aims to bring together not only a host of school district personnel, but also a variety of private service providers and non-profit groups, so that parents of special education students can access all the resources available to them locally, at one place and time.

To that end, the Marysville Special Education PTSA is seeking exhibitors and donors, in addition to attendees, for its free Oct. 19 Resource Fair, which is scheduled to run from 4-7 p.m. in the Totem Middle School cafeteria.

The Marysville Special Education PTSA's March 9 Resource Fair earlier this year was a first for the Marysville School District, and the organizers of both fairs intend to help simplify the lives of area families with children who have special needs, by highlighting the resources available to special-needs children both within and outside of the Marysville School District.

"I like this collaborative approach," said Barbara O'Kelly, vice president of the Marysville Special Education PTSA. "Different perspectives enhance [my daughter] Erika's learning."

To take part as a donor or exhibitor, or for more information, contact O'Kelly by phone at 425-754-9945 or via email at You can also log onto for a full flyer that can be downloaded.
