Check out Randall and Franklin Students' Artwork In Our Community  
Last year's 3rd and 4th grade classes (our current 4th and 5th graders) and several Franklin students worked hard on projects that are now or will soon be a part of the community. Work is displayed at the new police station at   4020 Mineral Point Rd  and a couple of pieces are (or will be) at the Henry Vilas Zoo. Please take your child(ren) to see some of these art installations that they had a part in making! Not pictured: the chandelier (coming soon) at the zoo.
