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

We are an all volunteer, non-profit organization. We raise funds to support 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.

Franklin Tile Wall

Thank you to the people that helped it get the tile wall started by purchasing tiles at the “Franklin’s Got Talent!” Auction and Variety Show. We have lots more room on the wall and want to get more student tiles up. We will be selling the tiles again at Family Bingo Night. They are $10 each and simple to make. Look for the decorating station at the Bingo Night. You can purchase and make it there or take it home to finish.

You can see the tile in the main hallway across from the office.

Box Tops for Education

Box Tops for Education and Labels for Education let you contribute money to your school without costing you a cent. All you have to do is clip the box top, label or UPC code from the packaging of participating products. You turn in your collection of Box Tops and labels to the school, and we do the rest. Last year, the Box Tops for Education program contributed nearly $400 to Franklin School!

Clip Box Tops from packages of products like Betty Crocker, cereal, Hefty, Kleenex, Scott, Yoplait, Nestle, Ziploc, Pillsbury (and many more). Drop them off at the dropbox in the Volunteer Center (just past Lost & Found).
