Recently, we saw the devastation in Texas and the Islands as the result of the impact of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Maria. In order to assist with some of the needs of those affected by those hurricanes, Franklin School ran a coin collection. It ran from September 18, 2017 through September 26, 2017. This was a great opportunity to reinforce the notion of giving to those in need and demonstrating good citizenship. At the end of the drive, we collected $329.00 in donations. It was divided with half going to “Communities in Schools” and the other half to “Direct Relief”. Both of these agencies received high ratings through Charity Navigator. We are very proud of our Franklin School community!

On Wednesday, September 21st the world will be celebrating International Peace Day. This day was founded in 1999 by a filmmaker named Jeremy Gilley. His goal was to have a global day of peace and non-violence, where countries all over the world agree to get along. The World Cultures teachers will be working on a “Peace Quilt” that will contain a “patch” made by each of the students signifying what peace means to them. The quilt will be displayed in the school on September 21st along with a Peace Pledge that the students will recite. We are asking you and your students wear blue on Wednesday, September 21st in honor of International Peace Day. We have also attached a copy of the “Peace Pledge” for you.
