Thank you all for the support of our Fannie Mae candy fundraiser! It was a huge success. As you can see from the picture we have lots of candy to send home tomorrow March 27th. Some students have boxes and may need assistance from parents. If your child sold several items they may need help getting the box picked up at school. East grade parents may want to call the Office at 675-2334 to see if your child has boxes to pick up. A blue note is attached to each package explaining that all money is to be turned in to the office by April 2 and that checks are to be made out to Franklin Elementary. All prizes will be handed out to students once money is collected. Once again thanks for your continued support!
