Franklin Elementary

Franklin is planning a great 2011-2012 school year. This year’s goal is to have every parent volunteer five hours of time during the school year. When parents and teachers work together, great things happen. Over the summer, Franklin will continue to learn about the impact of the I-5 extension on air quality around Franklin. Franklin is also searching for solutions to mitigate the loss of mature trees around the off ramp. The PTA is also planning events for incoming families, including a barbecue and a first-day-of-school social. Have a great summer.
