Students are invited to bring their chore money to buy gifts so please have them bring in $16, in an envelope on the day their class is scheduled to shop (see Class Schedule below). For financial assistance, please see Marta. Students and parents are all invited at the end of the second shopping day on Friday, December 16th at 3pm, to return after school to buy additional gifts from the leftover inventory.

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to all of you for making these first few months of the school year a success! Thanks to all of you volunteering your time and energy, and sharing your support and school spirit, our children have enjoyed the following so far this year: Back to School Popsicles An unforgettable first ever Welcome Back BBQ An assembly about the wonders of Hot & Cold elements Two guest Authors (Todd Parr and Audrey Vernick) The ever so popular Book Fair and After school Golf and Chess Club Opportunities And this is just the beginning! SHReK, Jr. the Musical has kicked off and begins tomorrow; the highly anticipated Holiday Gift Shop comes in December, and Astrograss will perform an amazing musical assembly in January. Many more exciting and enriching opportunities will occur in the second half of the year; an early thank you to those volunteers already hard at work to enhance the elementary school experience for our children!  Lastly, thank you for your extreme generosity with your PTO donations! Your donations make it possible for us to bring all of these activities to life!  Warmest wishes to you and your family this Thanksgiving season,  Sheila Cheney -Franklin […]
