Each week we will keep families updated on the top things to know each week so you can be informed for what is happening at school and news/updates from the PTA-related activities.
TOP 6 TO KNOW THIS WEEK:
Holiday Gift Collection
Give to your child’s classroom teacher
NOW OPEN at the PTA Store on Membership Toolkit
Deadline to Contribute to you child’s class gift: Friday, 12/13/19
The Franklin PTA Head Room Parents are once again coordinating a holiday gift for their class. We do this for two reasons – first, to recognize our teacher’s great work and second, to make your holiday shopping a little simpler.
We are collecting contributions online via the PTA Store on Membership Toolkit. You do not need to be a PTA member to contribute - any family can use the PTA Store. Room Parents will not be sending home a letter asking for cash/check contributions. In recent years, the PTA has moved to an online collection to avoid money getting misplaced by students and to ease the burden we place on teachers.
Gift Amounts: As always, we are suggesting contributions of $10 per family; however, we would welcome your participation at any level. This year, a few classes have co-teachers. For these classes, families may want to increase their contribution to $10-$20 per family for both teachers.
The gift will be given to the teacher before the holiday break. Participation is optional.
Once the online collections close on Friday, 12/13, the PTA will inform Head Room Parents how much in total they have to spend on the classroom gift. The PTA will not share how much each family contributed, only the total collected. Head Room Parents will purchase the gift for the class. Head Room Parents will also be given the parent’s email to communicate to them what was purchased with the money collected.
If you’d like to give to any additional Franklin staff members, please do so individually. PTA will again be organizing an All Staff gift at the end of the year (May) for Teacher Appreciation Week.
