Please join us tonight (Friday November 17th) for the Randall Movie Night  at 7:00 pm in the Randall Cafeteria  - doors open at 6:45 pm. We will be showing "Kubo and the Two Strings", a film from 2016. 
Kubo and the Two Strings is rated PG and has a running time of 101 minutes. Movie synopsis: "Kubo mesmerizes the people of a local fishing village, with his magical gift for spinning wild tales with origami. When he accidentally summons an evil spirit seeking vengeance, Kubo is forced to go on a quest to solve the mystery of his fallen samurai father and his mystical weaponry, as well as discover his own magical powers." For the IMDb listing of the movie click  here .
Please note that movie night is not a drop-off event-please plan to stay and provide supervision for your children. We will be serving lemonade and popcorn. See you there!
For volunteer opportunities, please contact Derek Gebler at  derekgebler@gmail.com  or Joel Anacker at  anacker@gmail.com . We will need some assistance setting up chairs and mats and then taking them down at the end of the movie.

Fall Fundraiser

A big THANKS to everyone who has contributed to our 2017 Fall Fundraiser. We are officially half way to our goal of $22,500 from at least 235 families by November 30th. But we have less than two weeks to go and could use the additional support!

November 28th is #GivingTuesday which is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

We hope you will consider our Franklin-Randall schools leading up to #GivingTuesday. Every single dollar counts!

Collecting Books for Bookshare
The Randall LMC will host a Bookshare later this winter and at that time, all Randall students will be able to choose books for free! We are collecting gently used children's books between now and February. Please drop them off in the Randall library.

We ask that the books be ones that appeal to 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, and that don't show lots of wear and tear.

Thank you so much for supporting literacy (and recycling) at Randall!!
