Room parent sign ups open on Tuesday September 13th at 9am on Franlinpta.membershiptoolkit.com.
A few guidelines to keep it fair for all parents:
Only PTA members can volunteer to be a room parent. It's not too late to sign up for the PTA!
Each parent can only be a head room parent for one child due to parties happening at the same time for all classes.
Head room parents are in charge of planning all classroom parties and organizing/purchasing a gift for the holidays and teacher appreciation week for their homeroom teacher. The gift collection for these gifts will be done via membershiptoolkit by the PTA board.
Parents may sign up to help at Halloween or Valentines Day parties for two different children, as long as you volunteer at a different party per child. You can not sign up to volunteer at both parties for the same child, or for both children at the same party. If you want to do both parties for the same child, please sign up as head room parent.
A mandatory zoom meeting for all head room parents will be held September 27th at 7:30pm.
IT'S PIZZA TIME!
The PTA sponsored "Pizza Mondays" is now open for orders. Every Monday starting SEPTEMBER 19th, PTA vounteers will order and deliver pizza from Spuntino's Pizza to all students that purchase pizza.
A little about how it works...Our school year will be divided into 2 blocks. Block 1 will run from 9/19 - 12/19. Ordering for block 1 is now open at franklinpta.membershiptoolkit.com and will close on Friday September 9th. No late orders will be accepted, so please order now so you don't forget! Block 2 will open in November and will run from 1/9 - 6/5.
Regular and gluten free crust are both available - all pizza will be cheese. Parents can select 1 ,2, or 3 slices for their child. This does not include drinks or sides. Limited options are available for purchase on our school's lunch provider - mymealorder.com.
Reminder, in order to order pizza for your child you must be a PTA member. Sign up for the PTA, and to order pizza for your child at franklinpta.membershiptoolkit.com.
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.
