Welcome to the
Franklin Elementary PTA Science Club!
All students in grades K-5 are encouraged to join the Science Club, which meets for monthly events on weeknights and occasional off-site daytime events on weekends. The Science Club’s “main event” is the annual Science Fair in the Spring and we hope all Franklin students will participate, regardless of whether they have attended prior events. Students who participate in five (5) or more Science Club events AND enter a project in the Science Fair will be recognized at our Science Club party in May 2020.
Attendance at Science Club meetings/off-site outings rely on parent participation so drop-offs are not allowed.
