Consider Donating Pants to Franklin!
Athletic pants and leggings.
The Franklin Health Office could use donations of new or gently used elastic waistband pants in sizes 4T - 8! 

Thank you for considering!

Thank You, PTO and Families!!
Franklin Elementary wants to extend a huge thank you to the Franklin-Randall PTO and our Franklin families. We have so much to be grateful for this year. Our families and the PTO have stepped up in so many ways when we have been in need, from all the PTO teacher treats to the Franklin families donating snacks and supplies when we returned to school at such an unusual time this year.

We are always in awe of our community helping us and others out in times of need and on a moment’s notice.

Incoming Kindergarten Playdates
Franklin likes to welcome incoming kindergarteners with summer playdates! It's a wonderful chance to visit the playground and meet families in your child's class. These playdates usually happen in late August as classroom placements are announced. The PTO is looking for one or two incoming kindergarten caregivers to help facilitate this. Please contact Coral at communityengagementFRPTO@gmail.com if you are interested in helping. Thanks!
