Weekly Wrap Up & Announcements

Everyone looked great during our Halloween dance, Halloween party, and Dress Down Day this week! All students received their first quarter report card today. Due to time constraints and the many activities we have planned, we will not be holding a parent assembly this quarter. Honor Roll certificates were sent home with the students that qualified.


Reminder: There is no school Friday, November 10th in observance of Veterans' Day.

There is also an early release day on November 16th and no school the week of November 20th.

2nd Annual Franklin Feast!

Our 2nd Annual Franklin Feast will be held on November 15th! All of our students and faculty will sit down to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving Feast, catered by Boston Market, together. This is a wonderful time to celebrate our gratitude for our Franklin Family. It's also a very large undertaking, feeding 1200+ people at one time, so we need your help! Please request to volunteer by filling out the form at https://tinyurl.com/FAPBGFeast17. Ms. Greenman will confirm your position as a volunteer via email.Due to limited parking and the amount of volunteers we will need to make this event a success, only CONFIRMED VOLUNTEERS will be permitted onto campus this day.


We also need donations! If you could donate any of the following, we'd be greatly appreciative:

Plastic Thanksgiving-themed table clothes (for 8' rectangular tables)

Plastic wear (forks, spoons, knifes)

Paper napkins (white or thanksgiving themed; dinner-sized)

Store-bought Apple or Pumpkin Pies


Thanks so much for your support of this amazing tradition.
