District Wide Alert

Wednesday, March 15 was Kindness Day at Franklin Elementary School. Each student wrote on a balloon something kind they did for someone, and each staff member wrote on a border piece their act of kindness. Everyone was also encouraged to bring a new pair of socks that will be delivered to Hands of Hope and other charities. That's a 55 gallon bin overflowing with socks! Look at all the balloons too! Franklin ROCKS at being kind.

Dear Franklin School Families,
Happy March!  Thank you to all of you who attended and/or helped at the Spaghetti Dinner on March 2. The evening was well attended, the food was great and the raffle baskets added an element of fun to the evening.  A huge shout out to our Parents Club for hosting the event.  Proceeds from the evening will go towards Shady Creek tuition. Thank you, Franklin School Parents Club!
On March 15 Franklin School will hold a Random Acts of Kindness Day. Staff and students are challenged to perform one kindness act for someone on campus that day.  Students can do something kind for a friend, a teacher, the custodians; it is their choice. The kindness acts do not have to cost money; there are so many kindness acts that just come from the heart. Please see link below for possible kindness ideas. Teachers will ask students to write their act of kindness on a special balloon which will be placed on a special backdrop in the cafeteria.  At the end of the day, we hope to see over 500 balloons representing 500 acts of kindness.  If possible, we are also asking families to donate one new pair of socks (child or adult) that we will donate to a local charity.  New socks can make a difference to a family – let’s make that difference!!!!
There is a parent survey that is live and will stay open until the end of March.  Please take a few minutes to complete the survey; your input is invaluable!  Thank you to the parents that have already completed the survey – we appreciate you!
The 2023 – 2024 calendar was approved by the Board during the
February 21 Board meeting.  The calendar has been posted to the Franklin School website.

Looking forward to sunshine,
Mrs. Shelton
