Mission Statement:


Empower. Encourage. Inspire.

Empowering students to be leaders

Encouraging leaders to pursue greatness

Inspiring greatness to change the world


Dear Parents,


We've had a great last couple of weeks. We appreciate our 'Every Day Heroes' that came last Friday and hope they felt the appreciation from our students and staff. Our students and staff did an awesome job of dressing up for our 'Wizard of Oz' theme for homecoming. We had a great school picture day this week and students finished taking the Fall NWEA tests. These results will be shared at Parent/Teacher Conferences next month.


We will be kicking off our annual fundraiser (Ready, Set, Fund) on Monday and your family's participation is totally voluntary. This year's fundraiser's theme is Kung Fu Coops and will happen in two phases. Phase 1 will begin on Monday and we'll be sending a link to all families via email to participate. This phase asks students to send out 10 emails to family members and friends to invite them to be a supporter for our school. The second phase begins next Wednesday. Students will bring home a packet of information where friends and family members can purchase a variety of items online. Students can earn coops and other prizes depending on the number of items they sell. We appreciate your support to help us raise money for our Leader in Me program. We will be sharing lots of information throughout the school year about Leader in Me and are excited to help students build their leadership skills in their learning and behavior choices. Again, this fundraiser is voluntary.


Students will be bringing home the Learn More Magazine from the Indiana Department of Education. There are many online resources available at to find college and career resources for students of all ages that compliment the magazine being sent home today.


Have a Great Weekend!

Mrs. Podzielinski

Dear Families,

A program has been brought to Frankton Community Schools called Eagle Packs.

This program is a community mission sponsored by the local churches and community members. Each bag will contain consumable food for the weekend (breakfast, lunch, and dinner items plus 2 snacks). This is an anonymous program so your child will not be identified to students as receiving the bags. Distribution of bags has changed from the previous years. You have two options: 1) Pick bag up from Frankton United Methodist Church or 2) home delivery of bags on Thursday of each week.


If you are interested in having your child receive a weekend Eagle Pack

food bag, please click on the link below to enroll your child(ren).


Thank you,

Eagle Pack Committee
