Welcome from the PTA President

Welcome to all of our FMS families. My name is Alisa Makler and I'm president of the Frankford PTA for the 2017-18 school year. I am excited to be back at FMS with my 6th grader, and I have two high school kids who are Frankford alums  - both had great experiences here!

 

Many of you have already joined our PTA and made generous donations of your time and money to support us. For that, we thank you so much. We do not hold typical fundraisers that you may be used to from elementary school (like cookie dough sales, auctions, carnivals, etc). Instead, we have a simple donation campaign where 100% of the funds raised go directly back to our school. Please consider this if you can. In addition to the obvious ways your PTA supports Frankford, there are other benefits to joining and volunteering. You will meet new people, have a voice, and you will be in the know. Also, please likeĀ us on Facebook (Frankford Middle School PTA) it is another easy way to stay connected.

 

It is an honor to serve Frankford and I look forward to getting to know you all. Reach out to me and I'll be happy to help, answer questions or find someone who can. Please get involved. It's worth it! 

                                                                                                                                                                                      Alisa Makler

Programs

Within Reach” Reflections Art Contest
