About Us

Who we are:
We are parents who want to enrich our children's experience at Franconia Elementary School. We provide funding and parent volunteers for programs and activities that support the students, teachers, administration and families at our school.

What we do:
Programs and Activities

  • Financially subsidize the cost of field trips and assemblies
  • Organize Family Night events, such as the Back to School Picnic, Holiday Family Night, Lip Sync Night, and Bingo Night
  • Publish the School Directory and Franconia Flyer newsletter, showcasing school events and including a Principal's Message
  • Create a yearbook that includes every student at Franconia
  • Fifth Grade celebration

How we do it:
Fundraising

  • Our main fundraiser is the Race for Education which occurs every year in the fall
  • Additional funds are raised during the school year through Kids Stuff coupon book sales, hosting dine-out nights at local restaurants, fall & spring Mommy Market, Wawa Shorty coupons, and pretzel day sales.
  • Our "No Cost" fundraisers include signing up for the Giant A+ rewards program, collecting Box Tops for Education, Amazon Smile and Red Robin Loyalty Club Rewards
  • "Opting-Out"; If you prefer not to participate in any of the fundraisers but would still like to make a financial contribution to Home & School you now have the option to make a direct donation. 100% of this donation goes back to school and can be done with cash, check or through the H&S PayPal account

Volunteering

  • Parent volunteers help in Home and School committees, events and in classrooms. To volunteer, complete a "Hands Across the District" volunteer sign up sheet.
  • All parent volunteers must have a TB test (free test at school in October – date to be announced the school nurse), AND volunteer clearances as required by the District's policy  (www.soudertonsd.org/community/volunteers/)
