Reminders from the office...
Registration for the 20-21 School Year: The OASD's required Annual Student Update (Enrollment) for Returning Students began last month. Please take time to complete the annual enrollment by going to your Parent Portal. In the Index you will click on "more" to see the annual student enrollment. Remember that the parent whose address is in the Franklin attendance area is the guardian who has access to do the annual update. We recommend that all parents update their portal even if you are not doing the annual registration. If you have questions or need assistance, contact our school secretary, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Report cards will be mailed to all households the week of June 8. You will be also be able to access report cards through the parent portal as soon as grades are posted on June 3.

BoxTops for Education
Hello Franklin Families! Even though we are all stuck at home, it is a great time to remember to save your boxtops. Most of the boxtop products no longer have the traditional boxtops on their products. However, there are still a few things here and there. It would be great to have a big collection when school resumes.
Also, don’t forget to download the new boxtop app. In the app, you can take a photo of your store receipt and then the app will send the boxtops directly to our school. It is that simple. There are also bonus boxtops available throughout the month. As a school we have raised over $500 through the app this school year alone. I know if everyone uses the app, we could see that number increase rapidly. Thank you to those who have downloaded the app. For information on downloading the app, please click on the following link: Boxtops for Education
If you have any questions, please contact the PTCO via email: email@example.com
Safety Patrol Belts
Please make sure that you return all safety patrol belts to school during the exchange.

Dear Franklin Families,
It has been a pleasure and an honor to be part of the Franklin School community. I have met so many amazing people and worked with the most extraordinary children during my time here. Franklin has truly been my home away from home. While I am sure to enjoy retirement, I will dearly miss being with my Franklin Family every day. To my kids, both past and present: Know that you are the best part of my career. You filled my days with joy and wonder. I am proud to have been your teacher and I will hold you all in my heart forever. Make yourselves proud!
Once a Falcon, always a Falcon!
