ROXBURY, NJ (January 14, 2021) – The Franklin Elementary School PTA is one of 25 PTAs to win a $1,000 grant sponsored Nestlé Waters North America. In conjunction with its national brand Nestlé® Pure Life®, the grant will enable Franklin School to educate families about the importance of drinking water as part of National PTA’s Healthy Hydration program. 

According to a press release from the National PTA, “Decades of research show a direct link between family engagement and student achievement, regardless of race, religion, background or socioeconomic status. That’s why Franklin School PTA in Succasunna, NJ is hosting a Healthy Hydration event during the 2020/2021 school year.” 

“Hydration is important for children’s health and wellness. Kids who drink water are more likely to make smart choices, be independent, and want healthy foods. We all know getting children to drink water can sometimes be a struggle. The Franklin School PTA will utilize the grant funds to help make drinking water fun and easy for the whole family!” 

Stay tuned for more details in the coming months on the Franklin School PTA Healthy Hydration event! 

Thank you Franklin PTA for helping to support a healthy lifestyle for our students! With this grant, Franklin School PTA is furthering the school’s efforts in creating and providing healthy sustainable lifestyles for our students.
