BOOKS! BOOKS! BOOKS! We are raising money to purchase books for our students. Each year Nichols School families participate in a program called One School One Book. We purchase a book for each family and adult staff member at school, but we need more money for our growing community in order to keep this program going. We will also use the money for a family reading night in which we plan several literacy activities that tie into the book we are reading. It's a fun night that the students and families look forward to each year. Click on the link below to access our Read-a-thon website.
We have the most amazing parent community here at Franklin. Here we have a father grabbing his snowblower and shovel and cleaning out a path for our students! We are so thankful for a community of parents that are always willing to lend a hand!
