APPLE Ice Skating / Bowling Party

It's on a Thursday this year!

Kindergarteners through 2nd graders will be headed to Hugo's for bowling.

3rd through 6th graders will be going ice skating at Eagle's.

Watch for the permission slips, fill them out and send them in asap. We need to know how many kiddos need sack lunches (there is a deadline for getting the order in).

Parents, we need chaperones, lace tie-ers, ice-skating helpers, and snack servers. Watch for the SignupGenius email!

APPLE Harvest Party

It's time for the Annual APPLE Harvest Party! Join us at Chase Middle School for great food, delicious Bake Sale items, fun games, and good company.

Costumes are encouraged. Please keep them family-friendly.

There will be a Soup / Chili Competition, so bring your best Autumn culinary offering (optional) and a good appetite (not-so-optional)! If you are bringing soup or chili, you do not need to bring a sidedish (see below).

Franklin's Annual Lantern Walk

Join our Kindergarten through 4th grade students as the Franklin Community gathers to bring the light into our dark fall nights. Students are making their lanterns at school and will light up the night as we gather at school on Wednesday, Nov. 1st.

Sekani Trail Clean-up ~ Volunteer Opportunity

Earn APPLE hours and beautify the Sekani Trail Run course prior to the event. We will be cleaning up trash along the course and in the staging area. This is an opportunity for us to give back to Camp Sekani and our Spokane Community. Our involvement in this event is our first major fundraiser of the year and we are honored to be the beneficiaries.

Volunteers, meet at the Camp Sekani lower parking lot at 10 am. Bring a pair of gloves if you have them. If not, extras will be provided. 

Franklin Elementary Fun Run

Lace up your running shoes, Franklin Falcons! It's time for our Annual Fun Run fundraiser.

Franklin parents, please help your students gather pledges. Our goal is $5 pledges from 5 people from each student. (Email works great for asking for pledges, but so do your kids' puppy eyes.)

All funds raised support PTG Carnival, Movie Night, Skate Night, Missoula Children's Theater, Book Swap, after-school activities and so much more!
