On behalf of the entire PTO I would like to thank Sue Huffman for her energy and enthusiasm in pulling together Franklin Movie Night.  It was a huge success and we hope to make this an annual event at Franklin! As we approach the mid-term of Crazy 8’s, the PTO would like to thank Ajay Shroff and Kim Leonard for the numerous hours they volunteered in bringing this club to fruition. The kids are having a blast! Finally, SEF Casino night was a huge success.  Thank you to Leah Ethoven, Stacie Collins and Katrina Walsh for chairing this event.  We’d also like to thank all the many parent volunteers who transformed the Elk’s Lodge to a casino floor, who solicited the highly desirable auction items, and who set up food and cleared out the space!  A job well-done!! – Clara Jenkins, PTO President
