April Newsletter and Calendar

April 1, 2021

Happy April!   Hope you are enjoying the renewed hope of the season of Spring!   Many are loving the warmer air but not so much all the wind!  We are in the last quarter of the school year as hard to believe a year ago we were confined to our homes.   I know restrictions are being slowly lifted for COVID-19 but at Franklin we are continuing to maintain distance, wash hands and wear our masks as I don’t believe we are out of the woods yet.

Thank you to your participation with parent/teacher conferences this week by zoom.  We continue to have 100% expectation for participation so hope you can hop on and hear the good news about your child.  Summer School information will be shared too. 

State testing dates are April 20th – May 13th for students in grades 3 – 5 in math and reading while 5th grade will also have science.  Please check with your teacher about dates and times of the tests and try to schedule any appointments around that time.  We are looking forward to our students to showing us what they have learned despite all the COVID challenges. 

Last, thank you for all your support with PTO activities this year as the monthly zoom meetings have been fun while fundraising has done well!   Please join us this month to share ideas on how you would like to see how the money is being spent.  PTO is looking for officers for next year.   If you have any recommendations, please reach out!

Thank you for sharing your amazing children with us.     Please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions or ideas!
