Franklin School helps Westfield Bloom
There are some exciting projects taking place in the Westfield, New Jersey Schools. For example, when the children return to Franklin Elementary in September, they will find ten outdoor tables on the property. Due to extraordinary fundraising and careful budgeting, the PTO was able to purchase and install these for use by the children at lunchtime. In addition, on beautiful days, teachers will be able to bring their classes outdoors for lessons. Six tables will be on the field near the baseball diamond and four tables will be alongside the fence of the Habitat Garden. In her final few months as PTO co-president, Beth Ripperger researched and negotiated extensively to make this possible. Thank you Franklin School parents for your generosity of time and funding. Thank you, Beth Ripperger, for your outstanding leadership and vision.
