Project Backpack 2013

The Office of the Superintendent is proud to announce that Project Backpack 2013 is currently underway.  In its fourth year, this successful community outreach program provides new backpacks and school supplies to income-eligible students in our schools.  This year, nearly 900 students in Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 qualify to receive these items.

In order to accumulate the tremendous amount of backpack and supplies, Superintendent of Schools, Maria Geryk, is appealing to organizations and individuals in our community for help and assistance.  She hopes you will once again agree to become involved in this worthwhile and meaningful outreach initiative.

Please consider reaching out to members of your group for donations of supplies; placing a large bin in the lobby of your business for donations; or posting a blurb on your website to promote Project Backpack 2013.  The List of Supplies is below for your convenience. Monetary donations are gladly accepted as well.
