September 11th

National Day of Service & Remembrance

 

Franklin School Participated in

Operation Goody Bag’s

“COMMIT to COLOR”

CHALLENGE 2013

THE CHALLENGE:

In 2009, Congress designated September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance, which offered a nation-wide challenge to engage volunteers in service activities on September 11.

 

Along with over 20,000 nation-wide group participants, Franklin School took part in this effort to support their commitment to engaging volunteers in a 9/11 anniversary project.  Under the direction of Mrs. Kathie Williams, Student Council Adviser, the entire Franklin School family “Committed to Color” lunch bags with pictures and notes of appreciation.  Over 1,000 bags were decorated and will be sent to “Operation Goody Bags” to be filled by volunteers with snacks. They will  be  delivered to first responders and troops in an effort to say “Thank you” and let them know that they are remembered and appreciated.

Students learn the importance of expressing their thanks to our nation’s veterans.

On Veterans Day students say thank you to our veterans by making cards and sending them to the Veterans Medical Center in East Orange, NJ. 


Student Council Students from Franklin School 
Franklin Kids Remember  Our Veterans This Christmas

          Franklin School’s student council designed and executed plans for their schoolmates to remember and honor the veterans who are spending the Christmas holidays in the Veterans’ Hospital located in Paramus, New Jersey. These activities included all students’ participation, Pre-K to grade 8, in order to teach the importance of the season of giving. To send  a little Christmas to our veterans, our students wrote letters and cards, stuffed stockings with donated toiletries, decorated Christmas trees, and donated new socks to be given to the veterans’ hospital and nursing home.

          After only one week, the student council members collected over 1,000 cards and letters that the students wrote to the veterans to send Christmas greetings, get well wishes, and thank you’s.  They also collected 345 pairs of new socks, stuffed  72 Christmas stockings with toiletries, and decorated 17 Christmas trees.  All these items were collected and packaged by the student council and picked up by Mrs. Susan Vive, an active member in our community, who champions activities to support our veterans through the local VFW here in Kearny.

          The student council members, under the guidance of Mrs. Kathie Williams, and Mrs. Cali, the principal, wish to extend a thank you to all of their Franklin School family and friends for their participation  in our successful  “Christmas drive”  to remember and honor our veterans this holiday season.  “Caring is sharing”  was a lesson well-learned by our students.  The packages and boxes that were collected and delivered to be distributed this weekend are a true testament of  your holiday spirit.

Merry Christmas Everyone
