Ben Franklin Ambassador Team

Upcoming Ambassador Team events:

 Ben Franklin School and Feed My Starving Children

 Starting TOMORROW, Wednesday April 10th, the 5th grade Ambassador Team is collecting change to donate to Feed My Starving Children.  We need YOUR HELP!  Please bring in any change you have lying around your house- search couch cushions and the top of washing machines- for our Feed My Starving Children coin collection.  Extra chores around the house, a lemonade stand (if the weather ever gets warm enough!), any way you can earn some extra change to add to the collection is greatly appreciated!  Just $0.22 feeds a child one meal.  $10.00 feeds 45 children for a day!  Every classroom has their own donation jar.  The classroom who raises the most money will WIN A VERY SPECIAL PRIZE! 
The collection will go through Wednesday, April 17th.  All change will be counted that evening and the winning classroom will be announced on Thursday, April 18th!  Good Luck and Thanks for your donations!
Also, Ben Franklin has committed to filling 90 volunteer spots at Feed My Starving Children in Aurora on Friday, April 19th from 2:30pm-4:30pm (SIP Day for D41).  The Ambassador Team and some of their parents and siblings have filled about 45 spots.  We'd love to fill every spot with Ben Franklin students and parents.  PLEASE join us in this very rewarding and fun opportunity!  To find out more about the organization please go to  If you'd like to participate, please email Kristen Novak at by Friday, April 12th so she can get your name on the list.  Also, let her know if you've got any questions.
