Project Keep at Franklin, Fuller, Symonds & NOW Wheelock Elementary Schools


(updated 6/8/2020)

You can now download our 2020-2021 Project Keep Application Form and register your child(ren) for the 2020-2021 School Year. Please be sure to read the application carefully as there is a lot of information regarding payment plans, start times, pick up times, etc. To register: 

1)      Download, complete and scan back to me (BEST OPTION as you will receive an email confirmation)

2)      Download, complete and drop off at Keene Community Ed. Drop box (227 Maple Ave., Jonathan Daniels building)

3)      Download, complete and mail in to the above address

Applications should NOT be turned in to your child’s school and it may result in a delay receiving your application and all spaces being filled.

There is so much that is unknown at this time as to what the beginning of the school year will look like and what restrictions/guidelines will be issued by the state and our local administration, but we will update you as we have information available to us and approach the start of the school year.  At this time, we are proceeding with registration as normal and hoping for the best but will make changes as necessary.  For those reasons, we are not collecting the $25 registration fee until August 1 (when the 1st payment is due) when we should have more details and are able to convey them to all of you. 

If you have any questions/concerns please feel free to email Erin White, Program Assistant (, or our Administrative Assistant Jill Moore (, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
