Riddle & Brantley is participating in Backpacks for Kids again this year. Our law firm is sponsoring Eastern Wayne Elementary School for the 2017-2018 school year. Last year, our goal was to provide students with 200 back packs full of school supplies and not only were we able to meet that goal, but we were able to exceed it. This year, we are hoping to do the same.
Eastern Wayne Elementary School’s enrollment for the 2017-2018 school year is approximately 750 students. The students range in grade level from kindergarten up to fifth grade.
