If you are new to Frankland, Falconwear includes t-shirts, hats, pants, etc., with the Frankland Falcon logo on it. It’s a great way for students and families to show their Falcon spirit! Please note that Falconwear is not a fundraiser – costs are kept to a minimum, and just cover the cost of the item, plus tax and shipping.
We have brought back many of the crowd favourites and added a few twists this year to keep things interesting. Sizes are fairly typical, but check with kids who have ordered in the past as we are using the same vendor, or see the samples in the office next week if you are unsure.
Please review this form asap and make sure you complete the form and submit payment to the office by Oct 25.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Ali at Alison.email@example.com.
GO FALCONS GO!
Blake Street’s Clothing Swap collection starts now! Drop off items upstairs in Room 203 at Blake Street JR PS.
- Clothing and footwear for babies, kids and adults. Please be sure your items are clean and label all bags/boxes with the contents and sizes (e.g. girls size 6-8) This helps the volunteers a lot!
- Winter gear- jackets, snow pants, and boots.
- Games, books and electronics.
They will also be collecting textiles that are no longer usable (socks with holes in them, ripped, stained or worn-out clothing, towels, bedding, etc.) Please be sure to separate these items in a different bag and label this bag separately with bag2school written clearly on it.
Frankland Community School supports Blake with their Swap as we will not have one at Frankland until the Spring. We are still finalizing collection dates at Frankland and will keep you posted. Or, items can simply be brought directly to Blake as described above.
Thank you, in advance, to the volunteers have kindly offered to transport the items from Frankland to Blake!

This Thursday, October 10th, join in the Province-wide Walk-In. Frankland parents, students and staff are joining together with over 400 schools province-wide to walk-in against cuts to public education.
PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR NETWORKS!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE?
Join Frankland Teachers, Parents and Students at Broadview Station* at 8:10 am to walk together along Danforth Avenue to school. Meet other parents at Danforth and Logan starting at 8:15 am to welcome the parade. Parents and kids can join us at any point along the Danforth. Bring noisemakers, and signs.
*Parents from Jackman, Withrow and Chester schools will also be meeting at Broadview to begin our march together.
WHY PARTICIPATE? The attack on public education is part of a larger attack on our shared public interests: libraries, health, legal aid, social assistance, climate protections, public transit, workers’ rights, and Indigenous rights. These are all interconnected. We need solutions that centre on caring for each other and the planet, and living with justice and dignity for all.
