Freedom Week March

Students throughout Topeka Public Schools celebrated Freedom Week and Constitution Day the week of September 14-18.   A great deal of the emphasis was on the life of Rosa Parks.  It was 60 years ago that Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.


On Friday of that week, students either marched around their school or to a nearby location as part of the week activities.  Quincy Elementary students made signs and marched from their school to NOTO.  Students also went from room to room to see the activities each class had participated in during
the week.
