Hello PTO members!

Now that it's spring things are starting to get very busy at New Franklin School! This means lots of opportunities for you and your family to get involved including: our April PTO meeting, the online auction, the talent show, and lawn fete planning! Stay tuned for even more upcoming events including the spring flower fundraiser, the ice cream social, and 5th-grade celebrations! April to June is a full sprint for the NFS PTO, so we appreciate any and all help! It's such a joy to be a part of the NFS community. Please know that all NFS staff, students, and families are always invited and encouraged to join in with PTO activities. 

It's here! Our biggest fundraiser for the year! Does your kid want to ride in a fire truck to school? Do you need a year's supply of fudge? How about a bowling party? Want to visit a wolf sanctuary? Maybe treat yourself to a stay-cation at a downtown hotel or a manicure? All of these things and more could be yours! Register today and take a peek at all of the amazing items in our Spring Fundraising Auction. The selection this year is truly incredible! Bidding starts Monday!!!!

Thursday's Pasta Dinner-to-Go Fundraiser was a very fun time. Our 4th and 5th graders did an awesome job of managing the event, and the food was delicious! Thank you to families for being patient while the chefs ensured delivery of hot and fresh meals. And thank you to all who participated, including our parent sous chefs! Funds raised from the dinner are helping to pay for the overnight field trip to the Ecology School. We are grateful to our sponsors: The Kitchen for contributing delicious meatballs and containers, AC Hotel for homemade marinara, Market Basket, The Rosa Restaurant for to-go containers, and to 4th and 5th grade families for pasta and parmesan cheese! Special shout out to Christy Greco for coordinating the entire event and to the following incredible parent helpers:

From Mrs. Marceau: On April 12th, our 2nd & 3rd graders will present a musical to you called Stone Soup, the story of a group of weary travelers and some gloomy citizens of Old Town who come together to discover that, “the greatest gift is to share.” The performance will be on Wednesday, April 12 (which is an early release day!) starting at 11:00am in the NFS gym. All are welcome and we hope to see you there! Information for parents of performers can be found by clicking the link below.
