The Annual Franklin Halloween Bash

The annual Franklin Halloween Bash will be taking place Saturday October 28th from 6-8 PM.  The Bash is a wonderful community event featuring games with prizes, arts and crafts, a haunted house (that closes at 7 PM so don’t miss it!) fortune tellers, a photo booth, a dance party and snacks. In addition to being a part of this great Franklin tradition, all proceeds go to the PTO to support academic programs and initiatives to enrich our school at Franklin. We hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you there!  .

Tickets can be purchased in advance for savings and to avoid long lines on the night of the event. Tickets are $6 per person / $23 Family Pass. You can purchase tickets here: https://franklinptonewton.wufoo.com/forms/2017-franklin-halloween-bash/

Flyers will also be sent out to your student’s classroom with an order form for tickets on the bottom to be returned in your student’s folder.

Tickets can also be purchased the night of the Bash at the door for $7 per person and $25 per family!
