Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

Volunteering teaches appreciation and awareness, inspires giving and compassion, builds social skills, gives a sense of purpose, and encourages worldwide and community involvement.
We will start out meeting in August and put together military care packages for servicemen. We will also discuss if we have any other ideas and would like to get together more times than our scheduled. How many times we meet will depend on how much active interest there is in setting up other service projects we can do.
In September we will put together some donations for the Wild Animal Preserve- Tigers for Tomorrow. We will set up a field trip in September to tour the facility and give them our donations.
In January we will collect donation items for a local community organization either providing food for those in need and/or diapers with the Food Bank of North Alabama is the North Alabama location of the National Diaper Bank Network, or snacks for the homeless with First Stop.
For March we will collect school supplies and office supplies for schools in Africa. I will also set up a field trip to the Anniston Museum of Natural History which will fit nicely since they have an awesome set up of an African savannah and the Berman World History Museum (right next door) which complement our venturing out to helping other countries in the world.
Meet The Teacher
Hello! I'm Susan Bacon, director of Franklin School. I have a B.S. in Education with a minor in Gifted Education. I'm a state certified teacher with 5 years public school teaching experience and 35 years of working with students. Through private tutoring, teaching homeschool classes, and working with homeschooling families I have found that my greatest joy in life is helping students find their own unique way of learning.
After working as a cover school coordinator for 5 years I founded Franklin School. I saw a need to provide families with a more creative learning experience with a larger variety of activities. As director of Franklin School these past 20 years I have offered homeschooling families curriculum assistance, transcripts, a lending library, activities, classes, field trips, parent workshops, and many other homeschooling amenities.
As a certified and very experienced teacher my goal is to assist parents by offering support in all areas of homeschooling and to help enrich each student’s educational adventure by offering a variety of classes.
