Franklin Feast

We had a great day celebrating our 4th Franklin Feast today! Thank you to all the parents and staff that volunteered last night and today to make this a success and to Ms. Sanchez and Ms. Huelsman for coordinating all the food and service for our students and staff. It's our favorite day of the year and a great chance to celebrate all that we have to be grateful for as a Franklin Family! We hope each of you are able to celebrate with your families this week as well. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

And the winner is...

We want to thank the students and teachers for getting so involved and excited about the fundraiser! Watching every student walk in each morning with the biggest smile and bag of coins ready to strategize was amazing!! We loved how everyone communicated every morning and all students were there to help the younger students!

CONGRATULATIONS to 3rd grade who finished the race with 21,299 points! Not only did they win the race, but they also had the most POSITIVE amount raised with just over $600 by bringing in their pennies and dollars!! AWESOME job 3rd grade and we can’t wait to celebrate with you with a popsicle party right after Thanksgiving break!!

Again, thank you to ALL grades and students who made Coin Wars such a success with raising just over $3,900!! Everyone did amazing and we are so proud of you all!! Be ready to compete again next year when Coin Wars comes back with a possible chance of winning in 2nd place and 3rd place as well!!
