Greetings Franklin Families:
On behalf of the Franklin PTO, we would like to warmly welcome all new and returning families to the 2017-18 school year! We hope you are excited about this upcoming year at Franklin. The PTO Board would like to update you on some important information and pass along some dates to add to your calendars.
The goals of the Franklin PTO are to build community at Franklin, support relationships between families and educators, promote communication within our school community, and raise funds to be used to enhance our children’s school experiences. In order for the PTO to be effective, we need your participation! Did you know that as a parent or guardian of a student at Franklin you are automatically a member of the PTO? The beginning of the school year is a great time to think about what each of us can do to help our children, their teachers, and the Franklin community build an even more enriching, nurturing, and welcoming environment for everyone.
With that in mind, we will be kicking off our JustOne Campaign in the coming weeks. If each family is able to volunteer to do JustOne thing for the school (be it big or small!) then Franklin will be an even better place to learn.
Here are some important dates for the first few weeks of school:
- Fri, Sep 8 – Principal Coffee (Q&A w/principal & parents), 8:40am in the cafeteria;
- Wed, Sep 13 – Picture Day;
- Wed, Sep 13 – Back to School Picnic, 6:00-7:30pm (rain date: Thurs, Sep 14); and
- Tues, Sep 26 – Back to School/Curriculum Night, 6:00-7:30pm
Soon we’ll have the 2017-18 PTO calendar posted. Don’t forget to follow Franklin School PTO on Facebook (FranklinPTO) for up-to-date information!
Finally, please be on the lookout for an email regarding further volunteer opportunities for the 2017-18 school year. There are many opportunities for families to participate and help, and we thank you in advance for your time and energy in making the Franklin community enriching and fun for everyone.
We are looking forward to another great year. See you soon!
