It’s that time of year again! The ARPS Family Center is proud to announce that Project Backpack 2019 is currently underway. The successful community outreach program provides new backpacks and school supplies for income-eligible students in our schools. This year, nearly 900 students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 qualify to receive these items. In order to accumulate the tremendous amount of backpacks and supplies we need, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Michael Morris is appealing to organizations and individuals in our community for support and assistance. He hopes you will continue to participate in this worthwhile and meaningful 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 2019. The list of supplies can be accessed with in the Project Backpack 2019 link. Monetary donations are gladly accepted as well.

Please contact the ARPS Family Center Office at (413) 362-1871 with questions or concerns. You can also email us at  Thank you in advance for spreading the word and for the support you provide our students. We look forward to another year of a wonderful partnership!
