While you’re on vacation, or at the beach, or waiting for your child to finish another day of camp, why not get yourself organized for the new school year (which starts in 7 weeks?) Here is a list of some things you can do now:
PTA Check out our newly revamped PTA website HERE . We’ve organized it and added more functionalities! This is where you’ll be able to go as we get closer to the start of school to complete your First Day Packets, buy Franklin logowear, and more! Information is still being updated for the 2017-18 school year and we will send you updates as needed, but feel free to look around the site! Please send any feedback or questions to John Jericiau at firstname.lastname@example.org .
PTA Be sure you are subscribed to receive our Monday/Thursday eblasts (they’ll resume in August.) Sign up to get important tweets from the Franklin PTA President. LIKE us on Facebook @FranklinSchoolSantaMonica! Subscribe to the Franklin PTA Google Calendar and have all the events for the 2017-18 school year right on your device(s), updated in real time! You can do all of this and more on the PTA website.
