Dear Franklin School Families,
Welcome back to the 2016 -2017 School Year! I look forward to working with all of our Franklin School families to ensure that this is the best year ever in the life of your child.
Our theme this year is Got Goals? The theme will highlight the academic and extracurricular supports that Franklin School has in place to help ALL students achieve their academic and personal goals. The acronym of GOALS is
Giving Opportunities to All Learners to Succeed. The theme will be played out throughout the year during assemblies, bulletin boards, t-shirts, etc. We look forward to involving parents in our theme as well! Got Goals?
Welcome to Jeff Poppinga who has joined the Franklin School Staff as our new music teacher! As you know, Mr. Leff accepted an administrative position at Luther School in Live Oak, and despite the fact that we are very sorry to lose him, we congratulate him on his new adventure. Mr. Poppinga comes to Franklin School after 20 years of teaching music in Colusa. Mr. Poppinga’s reputation precedes him and we are very lucky to have such talent join our teaching staff. Please introduce yourself to Mr. Poppinga; I know he’s anxious to meet our Franklin School community.
School begins on Monday, August 15. Don’t forget that we now offer a breakfast program that will begin on the first day of school. Breakfast prices have increased to $1.75. Lunch prices remain the same at $2.75. Free and reduced lunch applications will be sent home the first day of school.
The after school program, “The Doghouse”, will also be open the first day of school. If you have questions regarding the program, please direct your calls to Ashley Marsh at (530) 822-5151, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Doghouse will be available for “drop-ins” on minimum day Wednesdays for a cost of $10.00. Please notify Ashley one week in advance of the minimum day if your child will be participating for the Wednesday minimum day.
My GOAL this year is to continue to work with students, staff and the community to ensure that Franklin School remains the best school in Sutter County!
