1st Trimester ends November 21.
Franklin will be hosting its ninth dance marathon on Friday, November 7th from 3:00-5:00 P.M. in the lower gym. It is open to ALL Franklin students and admission is only $5.00. For those new to Franklin, this is not your average middle school dance. No awkward slow dances, no waiting to be asked to dance, and no talent necessary! All students are expected to dance as fast as they can and as much as they can (with appropriate breaks for snacks of course!)

For those unfamiliar with dance marathon as a charity fundraiser, this event is affiliated with the University of Iowa’s Dance Marathon and the Children’s Miracle Network. Funds raised help support pediatric cancer patients at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. Each year we are blessed to have numerous college students affiliated with Dance Marathon join us. In fact, some years we have had some of our very own Franklin alumni return to dance with us as U of I student dancers. It’s good fun for a good cause. We hope you can join us this year too!
The last two years our dance was made even more special by the presence of Jack Hoeger, a pediatric cancer survivor, and his family. Jack is now in eighth grade, so please take this opportunity to come celebrate with him! And if you want to learn more about Jack and his fight against cancer, you can check out Jack’s own you tube video “Get to Know Jack” by Livestrong Jack. (See the video below)
