How are PFO funds used?
In the past PFO funds have purchased such items as books, software and art supplies. In recent years
the PFO has primarily supported the after-prom activity night for juniors and seniors, as well as a staff
appreciation luncheon. More participation would allow the PFO to do more for the students.
How are PFO funds raised?
The PFO sells refreshments at the visitors’ concession stand during home football games, as well as
50/50 tickets. It also sells soft drinks at the annual homecoming dance.
In addition, the PFO has a yard sign that parents can rent to celebrate a student’s birthday or an
accomplishment. The sign is displayed outside of Franklin Central. Rental is $25. To rent the yard sign, please complete the yard sign form and send it to the main office with your money. You may e-mail the information to Tonya Short, firstname.lastname@example.org, but the money must be paid at the school’s main office before the sign will be displayed. Signs will not be displayed in prohibitive weather.
