Welcome to both new and returning families! We hope you are excited about this coming year at Franklin. As the PTO Board, we want to update you on some important information and give you some dates to put on your calendars.
The PTO’s goals are to build community at Franklin, support relationships between families and educators, promote communication within our school community, and raise funds to be used to enhance our children’s school experiences. In order for the PTO to be effective, we need your participation! Did you know that being a parent at Franklin automatically makes you a member of the PTO? The beginning of the school year is a great time to think about what we can each do to help our children, their teachers, and the Franklin community build an even more enriching, nurturing and welcoming environment for everyone.
With that in mind, we will be kicking off our JustOne Campaign in the coming weeks. If each person is able to volunteer to do JustOne thing for the school (be it big or small!) then Franklin will be an even better place to learn. More information will be coming soon!
Here are some important dates for the first few weeks of school:
Soon we’ll have the 2016-2017 PTO calendar on this website and don’t forget to follow Franklin School PTO on Facebook for up-to-date information! Please be on the lookout for an email about updating your family’s contact information in the Franklin Directory. We will be collecting this information online, but will have both a printed version and an online version available this fall. We’ll also be launching our dues drive soon, but you can contribute now at franklinpto.com/contribute-
We are looking forward to another great year. See you soon!
