Thanks to everyone who bought products from Toll students during the Signatures Fund drive. Products will be delivered to students Oct. 14. Parent help is requested. PTA Reflections student entries are due Oct. 20. Keep in mind that Red Ribbon Week is Oct. 25 to 29, reminding students of the dangers of drugs.

Thanks to Lisa Deyell for chairing the first PTA event; Hot September Night. Thanks also to Dawn Velasquez for organizing and teaching the "Poodle Skirt" class for the event. Balboa continues its membership drive under Nono Petrossian's leadership, so please join. The first PTA meeting successfully introduced new principal Lena Richter to Balboa parents.
The gift-wrap fundraiser will soon begin; get your wallets ready. The sixth-grade student store is in full swing and open every Wednesday after school. The next major PTA event is the Pumpkin Patch, to be held Oct. 23 in the kindergarten yard.
To volunteer at Balboa, contact the school at (818) 241-1801.
Franklin started the year with three Spanish, one German, and one Italian kindergarten class, plus incredibly energetic new parents and teachers. For the first time in Franklin Elementary history, the school has reached 100% PTA membership. They also started the year with the Parents on Patrol program providing supervision at lunch, drop off and pick up; allowing teachers to focus more on students and classes.
