Mission Statement:

Frankton Elementary, in partnership with families and the community, provides instruction in a safe and caring environment that challenges students to strive for academic excellence and to become respectful, responsible citizens.

From the Principal:

Thank you to all of our Grandparents and Special Guests that came to be with students the past couple of days. We appreciated your patience with signing in both days and had nearly 1,000 guests sign in and hope you enjoyed your visit at FES.

We will be having our annual food/toy drive after the Thanksgiving Break. We are proud to help many families for the holidays and couldn’t do it without the support of our students and staff. Please read the 'Deck the Halls' flyer included with this newsletter.

The Harvest Bazaar has been rescheduled for November 29th. We hope you can stop by the school from 3:00-7:00 and do some holiday shopping.

Santa Shop will be returning to our school the week of December 10th-14th. There will be more information coming soon.

School will not be in session November 21st-23rd in observance of Thanksgiving.

Have a Great Weekend and Thanksgiving Break!

Mrs. Podzielinski
