DEAR FELLOW FRANKLIN PARENTS,
We are excited to announce our 4TH ANNUAL KINDNESS WALK! The Kindness Walk is the PTA’s main fundraiser for the year. It allows us to eliminate smaller fundraisers and offer even more free PTA-sponsored events for all.
And it’s these EXTRAS that help set one school apart from the other. We’re on a mission to make Franklin an EXTRA special learning environment for students, teachers, and administration.
Raise Craze Fundraising beings Monday, September 23rd and ends with the Kindness Walk on Friday, October 11th.

BUT WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
Thanks to the generous donations and participation of caregivers like you, the Kindness Walk has been an amazing success for three years in a row. Raising over $30,000 each year has allowed us to donate new LRC flexible learning furniture, a brand new screen and sound system for the school, fund teacher grants, provide scholarship funds to students in need, and so much more!
KINDNESS MATTERS AT FRANKLIN!
As in years’ past, we partner with Raise Craze -- a program that encourages our kids to thank their donors by “paying it forward” with a random act of kindness. For each donation your child receives, they will perform a simple act of kindness of their choice as a way to BE THANKFUL for the support they receive. This great program allows us to raise money to support our students, and showcase the amazing kindness of our Franklin students!
Last year, students performed more than 1,650 acts of kindness!
That is INCREDIBLE!
During the Kindness Walk on October 11th, students will walk or run laps while parents, teachers and friends cheer them on. Students look forward to this day every year!
WHY PARTICIPATE IN THIS IMPORTANT FUNDRAISER?
So why should you participate? Because the EXTRAS matter. Because being KIND matters. And because this is a great opportunity to reinforce kindness and gratitude while supporting programs not funded by our state or taxes.
Here are just some of the important EXTRAS that the PTA provides for Franklin students:
• ACADEMIC ENHANCEMENTS: Author Visits, Cultural Arts Programs, Battle of the Books, Reading Counts, Anti-Bully Campaign, Anti-Drug Campaign, Franklin Olympics, Math Club, Keyboarding Without Tears, Brain Space in the LRC, Recess Equipment, and so much more!
• COMMUNITY EVENTS: Homeroom Parties, School
Assemblies, Grade level socials, Back to School/End of Year Picnic, Breakfasts with Moms & Dads, Pool Party, Roller Skating Party, and more!
