1) The Franklin PTA focuses on parent education, public education advocacy, and community building. PTA collects $10 membership dues each fall. These dues fund PTA activities at Franklin (socials, meetings, etc.) as well as the Glendale, California, and National PTA organizations. PTA board meetings are held once a month.
All of the net profits BFEF raises goes back to the school: we fund our international teaching interns and local aides, teacher supplies and student support, music and visual arts supplemental classes, environmental education, and community enrichment activities like Film Fest and our STEAM Faire. To pay for these programs, BFEF asks our families to set up small monthly, sustaining donations each fall. We also run a spring Dance-a-thon fundraiser.
