TOMORROW is Turkey Feather Day & Food Drive! & turn in your signed Friendship Walk permission slips!
Hi Franklin Families! TOMORROW MORNING, Monday, Nov 22nd, from 8:00AM - 8:20AM, don't forget to bring your decorated turkey feathers to the FRONT of the school along with items for our food drive with the Centre Street Food Pantry! Please have the decorated feathers IN HAND and not in backpacks so that the kids can just drop them off with our PTO volunteers in front of the school. In case you need to print another copy of the feather, the PDF is attached to this email.
For the Kids Club Food Drive with Centre Street Food Pantry, you can choose to fill a brown handle grocery bag (double bag please) with the following seven items, OR bring one or more items from the list to school and we will create the bags :) - 1 cereal box - 2 packs applesauce cups - 2 boxes granola bars - 2 boxes mac n' cheese - 1 large bag of pretzels / chips - 1 jar peanut butter - 1 jar jelly
Also, your signed permission slips are due TOMORROW, November 22nd, for the Franklin Friendship Walk happening this Wednesday, November 24th, at 10:45AM! Please put them back into your student's folder. All families are invited to be spectators along the route from front yards or on the sidewalks across the street! Please see the map below to see the planned route. The pink stars on the map show the sidewalks that the students will be walking on.
Thank you so much!!
