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.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child is having issues with their Chromebooks, our staff is working hard to make sure your child is able to continue their learning at home. Please click on the following link to get assistance with Chromebook issues: Chromebook Assistance Link
