                                           A Letter From Our PTA President
                                           Dear Franklin Families,
                                           We have plenty of activities to keep us Marching into spring! First and
                                           foremost is the Franklin Fair, just 10 days away!! Franklin Fair is our most
                                           important fundraiser of the year, without which we could not provide the many
                                           programs that enrich our children's learning experience. The foundation of
                                           our budget is built with revenue from the Fair. Funds are used throughout the
                                           year to provide such activities as Peer Mediation, Art in the Classroom,
                                           Cultural Arts Assemblies, and After School Programs. Essentially, all events
                                           and programs that make Franklin unique and special are paid for with the PTA
                                           budget.

                                           I realize you are bombarded with requests for donations from organizations
                                           throughout the community. However, in this age of state-mandated budget
                                           cuts, it is more important than ever to support our schools. The Fair is the
                                           only school activity for which we request 100 percent participation. Class
                                           parents recently contacted each family to volunteer for an hour or two to
                                           staff this event. Realizing we all have many demands on our time, THANK
                                           YOU in advance for your commitment to the school. The value your presence
                                           brings to the event is immeasurable.

                                           It is not too late to purchase advance tickets or make donations to the silent
                                           auction and/or the children's raffle. We look forward to salivating over all
                                           those yummy treats parents bring for the infamous Cake Walk. Take
                                           advantage of this opportunity to create some edible fun with your kids. And
                                           of course don't forget your beach towel. Orders may be placed until March
                                           27th, while supplies last. For many of you, time devoted to the Fair has far
                                           exceeded the two-hour request, most notably Fair Chairs Lauren Weiss and
                                           Deanna Smeltz, committee chairs and all their volunteers. We appreciate
                                           everything that you have done and look forward to "Franklin Goes to the
                                           Beach" on Saturday, March 28.

                                           At the State of the School Address on March 11, Dr. Cole updated the
                                           audience on goals for each grade, NJPass preparation, and progress we have

                                           made in Language Arts. She once again stressed the attendance policy and
                                           requested that parents notify her in writing of any unexcused absence. On
                                           November 5, there were 66 students absent, which is almost 18% of the
                                           school population! This absentee rate impedes the ability of teachers to stay
                                           on track and thus negatively affects the learning of the entire student body.

                                           We had an amazing turnout for our first fourth grade Breakfast with Dad on
                                           Friday, March 13th. Thank you Patricia Michaels for your tireless efforts
                                           masterminding and organizing the event. At the breakfast, children enjoyed a
                                           healthy meal while playing math games and sharing a social studies project.
                                           The morning was a huge success and we hope to make it an annual tradition.
                                           This event will be included in the volunteer package you receive over the
                                           summer. If you have a third grader, grab a friend and chair the breakfast
                                           next year.

                                           We have just two remaining PTA meetings for this school year: April 20 and
                                           May 29. On April 20, Vice President Patricia Michaels will run the general
                                           meeting while I run the Boston Marathon. At this meeting, she will announce
                                           the slate of officers for the 2009-10 school year and review the PTA by-
                                           laws. Guest Speaker and Washington School parent, Debbie Bronokowski, will
                                           discuss her initiative to source safer, economical alternatives to the toxic and
                                           hazardous cleaning products currently used by the district in our schools. The
                                           very first Franklin School Green team will give an update on their progress to
                                           date. Also at this meeting, Jamie Heckelman will inform us about the Stage
                                           Lighting Project. The meeting occurs the Monday after Spring Break; mark
                                           your calendar and make plans to re-connect with friends during conversation
                                           and coffee at 8:30 a.m. The meeting will begin promptly at 8:45 a.m.

                                           The equipment has been installed, the mulch has been put in place, and the
                                           ribbon has been cut! On Monday, we officially opened the Warwick Playground
                                           with a ribbon cutting ceremony. THANK YOU Patty McDonald and the many
                                           parents who stepped up to make this field of dreams a reality for our school
                                           and community. Please stop by and enjoy this wonderful addition.

                                           The Franklin Fair is coming! Saturday, March 28 - 10 am to 2pm. We'll
                                           have leis, hula dancing, face painting, a bouncy house, sand, games, a cakewalk,
                                           and much, much more.

                                           Why Come?
                                           It's a fun day for the children and our biggest fundraiser for the school. Our
                                           kids LOVE the fair and look forward to it all year. We thought seriously
                                           about not having it this year, but we couldn't take the thought of so many sad
                                           faces. Please take a moment now to mark it on your calendar.

                                           How Can You Help Get the Kids Involved?

                                           - Make a cake. The messier and more gooey the better. Homemade or not, we
                                           want to send every kid home with a prize
                                           - Help them decorate their penguin so we can in turn decorate the school. A
                                           template was sent home in last week's Wednesday folder - go wild! Every
                                           student who enters a decorated penguin will get their name in a raffle for one
                                           of our charming stuffed penguins (look for the display soon as you enter the
                                           school).

                                           What Else Do You Need to Know?
                                           - We realize that the fair is a big volunteer commitment. Thanks to the class
                                           parents for coordinating all the volunteer efforts and to everyone who has
                                           already volunteered. We really appreciate the time and effort you give to
                                           support the school.
                                           - We know that times are tough out there, but every little bit helps. If you
                                           can donate to the kids auction or have something wonderful and unique to
                                           offer to the silent auction please reach out to the folks listed below. We are
                                           particularly in search of sports tickets and the ever-popular golf & lunch
                                           packages for the silent auction.
                                           - If you want to purchase a "Franklin" beach towel as part of the
                                           celebration, Jamie Kessel has got one in your size!
                                           - If you want to buy advance tickets, contact Stacey Supran

                                           Thanks! We do this for the kids, and we hope you will too. If you have any
                                           suggestions or questions please let us know.

                                           See you at the Fair!
                                           Lauren Weiss & Deanna Smeltz


                                                                      Character Counts! Fairness
                                           With the spring sports season beginning in a few weeks, now is a good time to
                                           have a discussion about FAIRNESS and good sportsmanship with your
                                           children. Please also encourage your children to take a look at the poster of
                                           Abraham Lincoln, which is displayed on the Character Counts bulletin board in
                                           the cafeteria.    It describes why Lincoln is recognized for promoting
                                           FAIRNESS.

                                           2nd ANNUAL CHARACTER COUNTS! BOOK CLUB IN MARCH. Please join
                                           us for our first book club meeting this Thursday, March 19, at 12:30 p.m. at
                                           the home of Anjali McCormick (49 Drum Hill Drive). We will discuss Beautiful
                                           Boy: A Father's JourneyThrough His Son's Addiction. This book chronicles
                                           the drug addiction of a teenager named Nic Sheff. Please join our discussion
                                           of the potential dangers our youth face as they approach their teenage years
                                           and what we as parents can do to help guide and protect them. While the book
                                           is painful to read, there are certainly some lessons to be learned. Beautiful
                                           Boy underscores why it is so important for us to teach our children to be
                                           persons of character and to make good choices in their lives. Please RSVP to

                                           are welcome. NO BOOK CLUB EXPERIENCE NECESSARY.

                                           UPCOMING IN APRIL. . . Our next parent workshop on the topic of
                                           FAIRNESS AND TOLERANCE (the last two chapters of Michele Borba's book
                                           Building Moral Intelligence: The Seven Essential Virtues That Teach Kids to
                                           Do the Right Thing) is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29, at 8:45 a.m. in the
                                           cafeteria. We hope to see you on April 29, whether or not you have attended
                                           any prior meetings. Lauren Weiss and Cathie Westdyk will lead the discussion.

                                           UPCOMING IN MAY . . . In response to parent feedback, we have changed
                                           the book selection for our 2nd book club meeting in May to the international
                                           best seller The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. Professors at Carnegie Mellon
                                           University are asked to give a talk entitled "The Last Lecture" where they are
                                           asked to consider their demise and ruminate on what matters most to them.
                                           When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor, was asked to give such a
                                           lecture he didn't have to imagine it as his last, as he had been diagnosed with
                                           terminal cancer. The lecture and subsequent book he wrote weren't about
                                           dying. They were about the importance of overcoming obstacles, enabling the
                                           dreams of others, and seizing every moment. The Last Lecture was about
                                           living and living with character.

                                                      Highlights on two SEF grants in progress in our high school:

                                           VEX Robotics. SEF funded a grant this past year to purchase two VEX
                                           robotics kits for use in three of the electronic classes at the high school.
                                           This enabled the school to form the SHS Robotics Team. Each kit has been
                                           used to build one robot and is used by a team of 2-4 students. Mark Snow,
                                           the teacher who heads the electronics classes has informed us that the SHS
                                           Robotics Club has competed successfully in its first robotics event, "Snowtop
                                           Robotics". The SHS team placed first in the East Brunswick Vex Elevation
                                           Challenge. This qualifies the team to compete in the nationals in Dallas, TX.

                                           Corey Walsh, the SHS English supervisor of the Media Literacy Education
                                           class provided feedback on the benefits of having an interactive classroom.
                                           Topic discussions are now able to be held on line which has resulted in
                                           increased overall instruction time. Media literacy education has proven to
                                           improve the exchange between students and between students and their
                                           teachers. The Summit School District believes that media education will
                                           prepare students to be better producers and consumers of media content and
                                           technologies.

                                           These are just two examples of how the money that has been raised by SEF
                                           has gone into funding innovative programs at our schools. If you are not one

                                           1. Ways to Save Energy
                                           * Walk
                                           * Ride a bike
                                           * Don't drive a monster truck
                                           * Turn off the lights
                                           * Use fluorescent light bulbs! (if you use them you could save a lot of energy!)
                                           * Use Purell, not water
                                           * Turn off water when you brush your teeth
                                           * Drive an electric car
                                           * Don't use electric pencil sharpeners
                                           Look at what we wrote, are you helping to save energy? If you're not then
                                           start NOW!

                                           2. Hey parents, you can help the environment, too! Everybody goes to
                                           the grocery store. One easy way of helping the environment is by using canvas
                                           bags instead of plastic or paper bags. Did you know it takes a month for a
                                           paper bag to decompose and 500 years for a plastic bag to decompose? Now
                                           that you read this, do you still want to use plastic and paper bags when you go
                                           shopping? We didn't think so!

                                           3. Troop 288 Help Saves the Earth
                                           Junior Girl Scout Troop 288 loves the earth and we can prove it! On Earth
                                           Day 2008 our troop cleaned up the Village Green in Summit. We walked around
                                           the park and picked up garbage and recycling. We got good exercise and had a
                                           lot of fun. We did it to help the environment on Earth Day (and we'll do it
                                           again Earth Day 2009). We told you we could prove it!

                                           4. We know where you can throw out and recycle cans!
                                           Do you know where you can throw out and recycle cans? There is a big clear
                                           bin across from the Post Office in the middle of Summit. It has a meter that
                                           shows how many cans we have recycled. You can recycle your cans can there.
                                           Recycling one aluminum can can save enough energy to run a television for
                                           three hours! So bring your cans to the big, clear bin across from the Post
                                           Office and save the environment.

                                           5. Troop 288 is asking for your help
                                           Troop 288 is asking you to participate in ways to recycle and reuse. One great
                                           way to recycle is when you go to the grocery store. Bring your own bag. If
                                           you don't have your own bag pick paper. It is better for the environment for
                                           people to use paper instead of plastic because it takes 500 years for a plastic
                                           bag to decompose. A good reuse, which also helps the environment, is to use
                                           both sides of paper. That's how you recycle. Start today!

                                           Troop 288 will be selling reusable lunch containers. We will be selling these
                                           containers so people can reuse and not waste and make the world a better
                                           place. The money we will make will be spent on planting a new tree in Summit.

                                           Speak up Summit to host Superintendent Nathan Parker Saturday, April 4. Dr.
                                           Nathan Parker, Summit school superintendent, will be the guest of Speak Up
                                           Summit, a community wide public education advocacy group. The meeting will
                                           be at 18 Blackburn Place. Everyone is welcome. Please join us at 9 a.m. for
                                           coffee. The business portion of the meeting will follow at 9:30 a.m. This is an
                                           informal meeting, so those with other commitments are certainly able to come
                                           late or leave early. Dr. Parker will discuss his first seven months in our school
                                           district--what he has learned, what is working, what might not be, and what he
                                           hopes to accomplish in the future.

                                           for the children, but be sure to ask your child about it that night. Paul has
                                           been giving his presentation to the 3rd graders at Franklin and other Summit
                                           elementary schools for several years. He discusses the perspectives and
                                           realities of growing up with his cerebral palsy. By sharing his experiences, and

                                                        "GROWING UP SPECIAL" IS TOPIC OF PRESENTATION

                                           LeDerick Horne, a nationally recognized motivational speaker and advocate for
                                           people with disabilities, will present "Growing Up Special" on Mon., March 23,
                                           at 7 p.m. in the library of Summit High School, 125 Kent Place Blvd. The
                                           presentation is open to the public; there is no charge for admission.

                                           Mr. Horne is a protégé of Jonathan Mooney, founder of Project Eye to Eye
                                           and author of the book, "Learning Outside the Lines." In the presentation,
                                           Mr. Horne will reflect on his academic career and the difficulties he
                                           encountered as a student with a learning difference.

                                           The funds for this event were made available through a grant provided by the
                                           Summit Educational Foundation (SEF). The grant proposal for Mr. Horne's
