Franklin is Now Squeaky Clean! A huge thank you to the 107 volunteers (including 27 Lincoln students!) who came out on February 2 to clean up our incredible school. We cleaned the basement, cafetorium, MPR, teacher’s lounge, rooms 3, 18, 20, 24A & B, computer lab A & B, the library, front and back patios, picnic tables, and more! We are excited to report that Mrs. Fiske’s class, with 10 parent volunteers, won first prize – a party at Menchies on Montana! Mr. Clark and Mr. Schwengel’s class, with 7 parent volunteers each, tied for second prize – gift cards to Beach Cream Ice Cream! Congratulations and enjoy!
A special thanks to the following for their hard work and overall support of Clean Up Day: Tara Brown, Deanna Sinfield, Morris Salem, Melanie Landsberg, Murphy Brown, Yi Ellis, Bryan Ellis, Liz Patterson, Bette Fruchtman, Varso Mesrobian, Martha Gutierrez, Kim Jaffe, Dana Asher, Beachy Cream Ice Cream, Menchies Frozen Yogurt and Slice Pizza! And to the parents who really wanted to come out, but were taken down by this nasty flu that’s going around!
Finally, an ENORMOUS thank you to Eirlys McKenzie! Outfitted in mask and gloves, Eirlys braved the cluttered, dusty and kinda creepy basement and supervised our largest group of volunteers hauling out trash, re-organizing cabinets and bookcases, dusting off shelves, and basically, making the basement a usable spac. You’re our hero, Eirlys!
Clean Up Day would not exist without your passion and dedication to Franklin Elementary … thank you again!
