Eisenhower Middle School Receives National Beautification Award



Eisenhower Middle School was honored at the 60th annual Keep American Beautiful National Conference in Washington D.C.  The school placed second in the nation in the school/beautification category.  Students and staff led by example in keeping their school looking good. When the custodial staff at the school was cut, students and staff jumped in and did their part in keeping the school clean.  Students spent a day going through the neighborhood picking up trash and a grant was written which will result in a reading garden for Eisenhower students. 
Eisenhower Principal Rebecca Morrisey and 8th grade student Hannah Bush were on hand to accept a plaque at the Keep American Beautiful Topeka/Shawnee County monthly meeting on February 12.
