TOYS FOR TOTS COLLECTION DRIVE!
Franklin, as well as other d64 schools, will be participating in a toy collection drive this holiday season. A "stuff the squad car" event and parade will take place before winter break.
We need your help to stuff the squad car! If you would like to purchase a toy for those in need, consider shopping the amazon wish list below. All purchases will be sent to our collection site, and then eventually brought over via parade to city hall. More information about parade will be communicated later this month!
There are numerous gift options in various price amounts. Any item can help someone's holiday be a bit brighter this season.
Collection will end December 3rd and conclude with a parade to city hall sometime in December.

Raise Craze is almost here! We kick off MONDAY, October 4! Flyers with registration information will be sent home with your student on Friday 10/1.
What exactly is Raise Craze? A fundraiser we can be proud of! This is a unique way for us to raise money for our school while making an impact in our community. During this fundraiser, students ask friends and family for donations via the online Raise Craze platform while paying it forward serving others. What a great way for us to teach our students the importance of kindness and gratitude while raising much needed funds. Students will spend time serving, not selling!
