Good to Know Info
Snack Pantry Donations
If you are able and willing, we would appreciate any donations of non-perishable, individually packaged snacks. These could include items such as granola bars, fruit cups, crackers, fruit snacks, etc. Your contributions will go a long way in ensuring that no student goes hungry during their time at school.
Donations can be dropped off at the front office during regular school hours or sent with their student to be dropped off in the office. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support!

Suicide Prevention Month
September is National Suicide Prevention Month, so this month’s Ask a Child Therapist topic is talking to kids about suicide. Difficult subjects only get easier when we talk about them. Parents and caregivers talk to children and teens all the time about avoiding risks and staying safe. Suicide is one of those risks parents should be talking about with their kids.
Parents and caregivers are invited to watch the Ask a Child Therapist Videos and follow on Facebook at Facebook.com/FSGCtopeka. If you have questions about the topic, please submit them to email@example.com. Questions are kept anonymous, and will be answered in an upcoming video.
