Grade 1 Food Drive & Grade 2/3 Donation Drive

Frankland’s grade 2-3 classes have been inviting all those who are able to make a cash donation to the Daily Bread Food Bank and -to date- this project has raised $3,590, which is 71% of their goal. If you are able, please consider supporting this project. Simply link through Frankland Falcons Give.

The two grade 1 classes have been encouraging the school community to contribute to their food drive to support a local food bank in the community. They have sent fliers home and made announcements to ask for help. Thanks to all who have contributed. Items can be sent to school until December 15 (this Tuesday!).
