! ! ! CHALK WALK 2019 ! ! !

Thank you to all of the volunteers, teachers and staff who helped make Franconia’s first “Chalk Walk” such a success last Friday!

Don’t forget: The fundraising portion of “Chalk Walk” officially ends on 10/18. There is still time to win amazing prizes for our TOP EARNING students. As of today we have raised over $13,000. This is fabulous!! Our goal is still $25,000...and we’re counting down the days to get there!

If you haven't done so already, donating is very simple... just direct all of your friends and family to: and have them search for the oldest or only student in your family.

Cash/Check donations are PREFERRED. (Checks made payable to “Franconia Home & School”)

We are going to need everyone's help to reach our goal of $25,000. Thank you in advance for your efforts!


Come out and join us this weekend for Franconia’s Townships first FALL FEST! Franconia Home & School will be there selling “Edible Sand Art” but we are in need of volunteers to help with 2-hour shifts. If you are available to assist in anyway, please sign up here:


Coupon book sales have come to an end, THANK YOU to everyone who purchased or returned unsold books. We still have books that have NOT been returned. Notifications will be sent home for outstanding books.

Please make payments by CHECK (to Franconia Home & School) for $25 to cover our fees.

Thank You!

Box Tops

Box Tops for Education has a new app! Please visit: to learn all about it and how to start scanning your store receipts. Even though they are transitioning over to this new system, clipped Box Tops are still being accepted. If you have any clipped Box Tops, please send them to school in a zip top bag with your student's name and class written on it. While we get acquainted with this new app, we will determine what school wide contests are most appropriate and then send out additional information.

Please join us for our next Home and School Meeting on Tuesday October 15th at 7:00pm in the library. These meetings are great ways to stay informed with what is happening at Franconia, meet new friends, and get involved in some of the amazing events we have planned this year!


Fundraising packets for BOON SUPPLY went home this week to help support the IVEF. Feel free to show your support to the IVEF, but please know this is not a Franconia Elementary sponsored fundraiser. We ask that all our Franconia families help support our “CHALK WALK” for Education and make this a priority. 100% of the CHALK WALK funds will be used for our students.

Thank you and apologies for any confusion this may have caused.
