Thank you everyone who has supported your Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) this year either through volunteer work, donations, or attending our meetings and events! It has been another great year, full of many memorable activities. 

Each year, with the generous donations from our BFA community and our annual sponsors, the PTO provides the school with tools, materials, and financial support for important programs, including:

  • Lexia and HelpCounter software
  • Accelerated Reader incentives
  • BFA Directory
  • Elementary and middle school planners
  • Teacher, staff and volunteer appreciation
  • Community events such as Franklin Fest, Trunk or Treat, the Sweetheart Ball and the Mother/Son event
  • Ben’s Birthday Celebration
  • Field day and graduation events

Additional PTO purchases planned with funds from this year include:

  • $40,175 from the Benefit Bash for school enhancements
  • $4,825 in various teacher giveback purchases related to the Benefit Bash; and
  • A staff year-end luncheon.

This school year we received sponsorship donations totaling approximately $26,000 and we raised $48,250 at the BENefit Bash. After the above expenses, the balance of the fundraising monies was spent on various PTO programs and school services throughout the year. Any remaining funds will roll over to next year’s PTO budget.

Thank you again for your unwavering support!
