Marysville Special Education PTSA presents third annual Resource Fair, Family Fun Night Oct. 17

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville Special Education PTSA's third annual Resource Fair and Family Fun Night on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 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, volunteers and donors, the latter for its silent auction, in addition to attendees, for its free Oct. 17 Resource Fair, which is scheduled to run from 4-7 p.m. in the Cedarcrest Middle School cafeteria, located at 6400 88th St. NE in Marysville.

The Resource Fair's organizers intend to celebrate, provide resources for, offer support to, and 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. This event is open to parents, students, school staff, caregivers, service providers, support groups, non-profits and anyone interested in finding out more about supporting children with special needs.

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

To take part as a donor, volunteer 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 more information.
