This month’s PTA newsletter is a veritable trick-or-treat bag of goodies, with a report on the incredible success of our first-ever Walk-a-Thon, an update on Blended Learning from Monday’s PTA meeting, a profile of new third-grade teacher Ms. Silva, and more!
October is a busy month at Franklin, and we’ve got it covered. So read on…if you dare!
|Walk-a-Thon: Fundraising Success!
They came…they walked…they blew the lid off the fundraising goals for Franklin’s first Walk-a-Thon! Franklin kids took to the streets for the very first school walk-a-thon, and man, did those kids move.

We’ve got two big events happening just this week at Franklin—the Book Fair and Spooktacular—and both could use volunteers for day and evening hours.
