    The Franklin Elementary students and staff, and the Board of Education and Administrative staff of the Glendale Unified School District, would like to thank the Italian Consulate General in Los Angeles and Fondazione Italia for the generous gift of $40,000 given to our school in support of the K-6 Italian dual-language immersion program.
