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. Your $10 PTA membership dues contribute to advocacy at the local, state and national level. 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.
Our PTA meetings at held on the second Tuesday of the month from 6:00-7:30pm in the Franklin School library.
