Who We Are

The Franklin Elementary PTA is a parent organization on campus that strives to connect parents and teachers, so that together, we can do good things for kids. PTA stands for Parent Teacher Association, and our school PTA is part of the nation's largest parent advocacy group, the National PTA ( We work closely with our sister parent organization, Friends of Franklin Foundation, to make sure all families are informed and active members of the Franklin community. We want all families to feel welcome and included at Franklin.

A PTA membership at Franklin is $10 per year. Anyone can join-parents, guardians, students, teachers, community members, local business leaders; if you love Franklin and want to support our efforts, you are welcome.
