Support the PTO

There are many ways to support the PTO and Franklin-Randall Schools.

Fall Fundraiser

The Fall Fundraiser was a huge success! Thank you to all of the families who helped us to exceed our goal for the Fall Fundraising Campaign. Our goal this year was to raise $18,500 from 235 families. The Franklin-Randall PTO was able to raise over $24,000 from 220 families! Wow. Thank you all.

Please know that every dollar you have given to your PTO goes directly back into funding for our schools, students and teachers. We appreciate your support and feel lucky to have such an active and caring parent and community base.

With frequent funding cuts, we are dedicated to supporting our schools and teachers to work in finding innovative and interesting ways to teach our children. We do this through grants, direct monetary support for the teachers, parent empowerment groups and much more.

Thank you for continuing to support and encourage the work for our beloved public schools.
