Students Get Sackpacks


All Avondale West Elementary School students when home with a new sackpack last week thanks to the National Foundation for Women Legislators and the Office Depot Foundation.  Nearly 300 sackpacks containing essential school supplies were handed out to students from kindergarten to 5th grade.  The sackpacks were distributed by Lana Gordon, representing Women Legislators and Angela Beach from the Topeka Office Depot store.  The two groups have donated sackpacks and backpacks to the students of Topeka Public Schools for the past several years.
