This past Friday night, the Franklin Cafetorium was very Disney as the venue was transformed into part ice castle and part dance studio. Students and parents alike were treated to the likes of Baby Shark, Elsa & Anna, Snow White, as well as many other characters.
Teachers and staff pushed through the three full shows with only minutes to rest between shows and one or two tacos from the taco station for nourishment. Multiple costume changes and dance numbers provided extreme entertainment to a gleeful audience. What a night it was!
The Franklin PTA is incredibly thankful for all the efforts of our staff, especially Kurt Schwengel. With the 13th year in the books, the Follies is an important fundraiser for the PTA, generating almost $13,000 in sales! After expenses such as TACOS, costumes, permits, etc., the funds raised (between $7000 – $9000) are used in the PTA Operating Budget to provide technology in the classroom, improvements around campus, office and teacher supplies, and more! Thank you for supporting your PTA! The raffle sales also help fund the Julio Lombero Scholarship!
It’s always a great way to end another wonderful year at Franklin. Thank you again to our wonderful teachers and staff! You are loved!
