TPS Students Receive Books from United Way

United Way of Greater Topeka celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday by distributing over 10,500 books to students at ten local elementary schools; nearly 7,000 books will be distributed within TPS schools alone.


Superintendent Dr. Julie Ford got the fun started  when she stopped by Quincy Elementary School to read the classic, "Oh, The Places You'll Go!" to the eager student body. United Way representatives and volunteers were also on hand to pass out books, bookmarks and pencils to the kids.

WIBW's Melissa Brunner, Mayor Larry Wolgast, Washburn University President Dr. Jerry Farley and Kansas's First Lady, Mary Brownback, will all be reading to our students in celebration of Dr. Seuss's birthday.




Thank you, United Way of Greater Topeka, for all you do for our students!!
