Franklin School PTA

The Franklin School PTA is an active group of parents, grandparents, and teachers who work together to build community at Franklin School. Our mission is in line with that of the Oregon PTA: The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

About & Welcome

The Franklin School PTA is an all volunteer, non-profit organization that provides financial and volunteer support to our students, teachers, staff, and administration. We provide monetary assistance for programs and curriculum, and we coordinate events throughout the year to build community and make Franklin School engaging and welcoming to all students and families. We welcome volunteers from families and the community and welcome help at any time throughout the year. You do not need to be a PTA member to volunteer at Franklin School, and anyone is welcome to attend our meetings regardless of membership. Your $10 PTA membership dues contribute to advocacy at the local, state and national level.

The Franklin School PTA holds hybrid meetings beginning at 6:00 pm the second Tuesday of the month. We meet in the Franklin School Science Room and also offer a remote call-in option via Zoom. A meeting agenda and supporting materials are distributed in advance of the meeting for preview and comment. Zoom log-in information is always included at the top of the meeting agenda. Typical meetings include the Principal’s Report, guest presenters, a financial update, and reports from
PTA committees. Meetings typically last between an hour and an hour and a half. Interested participants are welcome to attend for as long as they would like. Attend a PTA meeting and find out what’s happening at Franklin School!

Fundraising the Franklin PTA Way! We minimize direct fundraisers and try to make all fundraising opportunities fun! In addition to the opportunities below, we also appreciate direct donations which are tax deductible as the PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The Franklin PTA Jog-a-thon is our largest and most important fundraiser of the year. We hold our Jog-a-thon in the spring to take advantage of warmer weather and student enthusiasm as the end of the school year nears.

The Franklin PTA plans monthly Dine Outs that help support local restaurants, encourage community building among Franklin families, and raise funds for the PTA. Look for monthly announcements about upcoming Dine Outs at your favorite Corvallis restaurants!

We also encourage families to enroll in the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program. Fred Meyer (Kroger) donates a portion of each Rewards program member’s purchases to the Franklin PTA. Please consider signing up for the program and contributing to the PTA. Set up for a Fred Meyer account and then enroll in the Community Awards Program (Organization # VK050).
