Franklin Elementary News
Welcome to the Ben Franklin Elementary website. We are very excited about the 2013-14 school year here at Franklin and have had a great start already. As this is my first year as Principal here at Franklin, I have been very impressed with the enthusiasm of our students, the dedication of our staff and the commitment of our parents. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve both the school and the community in this leadership role.
Our school's mission is "we care, we learn, we lead, we inspire." This mission speaks volumes about how we, as a school, will help our students grow and learn. We are in our second year of the Action 100 reading initiative and I believe this program is going to continue to help improve the learning of our students not only in reading, but in all subject areas.
I look forward to working with our staff, parents and community members to ensure a safe learning environment, establish a strong curriculum and provide a positive culture for the growth of our students. Please join us in this endeavor as we prepare for the future of our community by participating in PTSA (Parent, Teacher, Student Association) or VIE (Volunteers in Education). If you would like further information regarding these programs, please contact our main office at 328-3302.
