• Franklin's Green Lunchroom Initiative

    To comply with two state laws about waste sorting, and to help reinforce environmental literacy, Franklin has started a waste sorting program at mealtimes.  The more waste we sort for composting off-site means less money Franklin has to pay for hauling away trash, and more money in the budget for teaching and learning!
    There are two ways families can help:

    💚Help our kids learn to sort their trash at breakfast, snack or lunch during the school day. This is a volunteer effort that is teaching our children environmental literacy as well as how to be good stewards of their campus. Who knows, you might be inspired to start composting at home after helping our kids at Franklin! Please sign up for a Green Lunchroom shift.
    You can watch a short video about what this entails here:
    💚 Pack your child a zero-waste lunch.
