As the Thanksgiving break approaches, we find ourselves with a special time to reflect on the things we have to be thankful for. We, at Topeka Public Schools, are very fortunate to be a part of such a vibrant and supportive community that values the work of preparing our students for their future.
We have a great deal to be thankful for; not the least of which is the opportunity to serve nearly 14,000 students and their families. As the Topeka community continues to grow, we will have many opportunities to come together, in a concentrated effort to ensure that our students continue to gain the best educational experience possible.
We are fortunate to have the strong support of community businesses and civic organizations. They provide volunteers, classroom resources, technology, school supplies and recognition for our teachers and students. Their generosity allows us to offer more opportunities for our children.
I wish you and your family a very safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
