    We will also be voting on next year’s PTSA Board and budget. You can read the minute from our March general meeting here.

     

    Last chance to nominate an Educator of the Month for this year! Please submit nominations for Educator of the Month. This can be anyone who works at FHS and has touched a student’s life this year. Educators are incredibly touched and inspired by these nominations, so please consider nominating someone today. You just have to email vicepresfhsptsa@gmail.com with the name of who you want to nominate and a short paragraph about why. We randomly draw names the week before our General Meeting.

    Fundraising

    Plant Sale Success!! The plant sale was very successful – the PTSA treasury is $980 larger for our efforts. Thanks to Clifford Carlsen and Lisa Zuniga, for use of their driveway, and to all who contributed plants, publicity, setting up, selling and cleaning up. Also a huge thanks to our plant sale co-chairs: Lucy Baker and Maye Thompson (who has lovingly led the plant sale for many years and will “retire” as her son graduates from FHS).

    Summer Hosting Opportunity for Families from Franklin High School: Host a student from France, Spain, or Japan for 2 - 4 weeks in July, August, or September and build connections across the world through friendship! The international students are coming to share cultures, practice English, and become part of an American family. Some students will be taking English classes from 9am to 5pm, M-F, at Portland State, while others will be immersed in their host families' daily lives and will not have any scheduled program obligations. Students bring their own spending money and are covered by comprehensive medical and accident insurance. Families receive orientation materials, 24/7 support, and a small hosting stipend. ANDEO is a local nonprofit that has been connecting families and students since 1981. Hosting is a wonderful way to learn about another culture first-hand while creating fun summer memories with a new friend. Apply at http://go.andeo.org/hostfamilyapplication or contact Emily Greenblatt at emily@andeo.info or 503-274-1776 for more info. www.andeo.org
