Franz Teacher Appreciation!

In honor of upcoming Teacher Appreciation Week, Franz needs your help connecting with teachers in our communities that could use additional support. Franz Bakery will honor 18 teachers to each receive $500.00 for their classroom needs. All nominations must be submitted before Monday, April 22nd at to be considered. If your nominee is selected, you will be contacted within a week to help coordinate the delivery of the check for the week of Teacher Appreciation, May 6th through May 10th, and you will also receive a year supply of Franz bread! Thank you for helping Franz give back to our communities!

Read Win Race (April 12th-May 16th)


From April 12th through May 16th we will be holding a reading challenge that is individually based but also competes with Trinity School and Elysian School.

Each week students will have a race car coloring sheet to fill out that corresponds to their reading (for our younger students, each section to color equals 15 minutes of reading. Our older students it is 30 minutes of reading for each section.) Once the whole form is colored, the parent will sign off on it and it will be turned in to the teacher. There is a new sheet each week along with prizes each week!

During this time, our school will be competing with Trinity and Elysian schools. There will be a racing board placed in each school office for students to see who is winning each week!

The grand prize for students to win is a ticket to get into the races for free on Saturday, May 25th. Not only will the students get to watch the races, but there will also be the ultimate principal showdown! The three principals from the three schools will actually get down on the strip and race cars for the finale winner. This is where the school that winds the reading challenge comes in handy as that school will have a guaranteed spot in the final 2 cars that race!

We wish good luck and good reading to all of our students!

More information will continue to come out as we get closer to April 12th.
