Support the PTO

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

Fall Fundraiser

Donate Now

Friends and Family Letter

As we enter into the new school year, we are asking for your support for our Fall Fundraising Campaign. School budget cuts unfortunately continue, so this year’s campaign is more important than ever to help our teachers purchase classroom supplies and participate in professional development and collaboration activities with other teachers. Your donation also helps support important initiatives such as staff and resources to run the Bayview ESL summer study program. Our goal is to raise $22,500 during this campaign from at least 235 families by November 30th. Every dollar makes a difference. No gift is too small!

$5 buys a book for a classroom library
$25 pays for plants in the outdoor classroom
$50 funds classroom materials above and beyond what the school can provide
$200 exhibits our students’ artwork at Randall’s Gallery Night
$500 supports each school’s Social Justice Fund, directed by school social workers
$1,000 pays for the cultural arts programming at Franklin or Randall

The money raised from the fundraising campaign is spent on programs that benefit our whole school community and include: community building events, cultural arts, building and grounds maintenance, the PTO annual grants program and curricular and instructional support for principals, staff, grade-level and specials teachers. If you are curious about how specific initiatives are funded, or how the PTO allocates its annual funds, please see the PTO Budget.

We donate our time because we believe that our schools can only be as strong as the communities that support them. Our fall fundraiser is a simple way to get involved to experience the impact that Franklin-Randall teachers, staff, students, and families are making in our schools every day. Your financial support makes this work possible. Some employers match donations – please check with yours!

Thank you for supporting our schools.
