Dear Franklin School Parents,
Welcome back to a brand-new school year! The first day of school is August 16th. This is always a special day because it is filled with anticipation, excitement, and…….
NEW TENNIS SHOES AND PERFECTLY COIFFED HAIR! 😊
If you have driven by Franklin School in the last few days, you have undoubtedly noticed the construction occurring in the front of the school. We are installing a beautiful new fence to ensure that all visitors check in at the office. Gates will be open in the morning before school and at dismissal, but during the day the gates/fencing will be locked. This will cause a few internal changes on how we get students to the cafeteria, playground, etc., but this is a small interruption when it comes to safety. We are hoping that the construction project is completed by the first day of school, but it might take a couple of extra weeks because of the fencing delivery.
The theme for this year is “What’s YOUR Story”? We all have a unique story that influences the way we interact with people, make decisions and see the world. Children have their own unique story and, as educators, we want to hear that story to help them flourish both academically and socio-emotionally. The great thing about this theme is that stories continually change and grow. I can’t wait to see what stories are created this year!
Franklin School will continue to focus on PAWS traits for the 2023 – 2024 school year:
P – Practice Respect
A – Act Responsibly
W – Work Together
S – Show Kindness
The entire staff is committed to help students practice positive citizenship traits. We appreciate parent support in helping us achieve our goals. Thank you, parents, for understanding that a pink slip or citation may be issued to a student. Working as a team will help students navigate choices and make better ones in the future. I appreciate you reinforcing school rules at home, and we will continue to celebrate all of the good choices our Franklin Bulldogs make!
Enjoy the rest of your summer! I look forward to seeing everyone on August 16th. If there is anything that you need or have a question about, please don’t hesitate to call the office!
