What's the Franklin Warrior Run? 

October 3rd is Ben Franklin PTA's annual fundraiser.  The school wide kick-off for the Warrior Run starts today.  What is the Warrior Run?  It's an obstacle course set-up throughout the playground and into the woods.  All Franklin students get to show their enthusiasm for our school by completing the course.  We are asking Franklin families to help us meet our goal of raising $40,000.  Students will be coming home today with individual donation envelopes, and are encouraged to gather as many donations as possible before the October 3rd deadline.  We encourage them to reach a personal goal of collecting $100 per student, before matching.

Please Note: Many companies will match charitable donations made by their employees. Check with your benefits personnel and double your donation!  


How can I help?

Calling all VOLUNTEERS. The Warrior Run will take place during your student's lunch recess on Oct. 3rd, and we need lots of volunteers to make it an extra fun experience for the kids.  Please sign-up to man the giant inflatable slide, or throw nerf balls at the students as they run by, or take photos for the yearbook.  Not an approved LWSD volunteer yet?  Click here to start the process to become an approved volunteer.  Tonight, please sit down with your student and read through the Franklin Warrior Run FAQ sheet included in the donation envelope.  However, if you have further questions, please contact Missy or Emily at
