The four buildings that will be open for assistance will be Wilson Middle School, John Deere Middle School, and Bicentennial Elementary School. These schools were chosen based on their geographical location. The District Office, Allendale, will also be open. All four buildings will be open from 8:00am-4:00pm.

We know these are challenging times for military families. But we will get through this together. Join us and let military kids everywhere know just how special they are!
The Military Child Education Coalition® (MCEC®) created the Call for the Arts (CFA) in 2002. Since then, thousands of children from all over the world, representing every branch of service, have shared their interpretations of what it means to be a military-connected child through art. To kick off the Month of the Military Child, military-connected children, grades K-12, are invited to submit entries for the 2020 CFA! We’re also excited to announce this year the inclusion of photography as a new CFA category.
We are especially aware of and sensitive to the
 enormous challenges confronting military kids and the disruptive impact the coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on their lives. Our hope is the CFA can provide children a means of self-expression and reflection – a safe, creative outlet to process their emotions and make sense of their world.
For more information, visit Call for the Arts on our website. 
These days, most of us are spending more time in front of our computer screens.
Use this time to help a military kid and take our survey!

Message from Ms. Pittington

As we begin a new school year at Franklin, I would like to thank the Franklin staff and families for the past three successful years.  During my time with the Franklin family, I have observed and have become part of many positive and rewarding aspects of this learning environment.  The Franklin teachers and support staff are committed to the academic and social skills education of each and every child.  The school climate is safe and nurturing, as well as one of high expectations.  Our priority is to use formative assessment to determine which instructional strategies to implement in each classroom, for each student.  Our goal is to produce student growth in all learning while teaching students the 21st Century learning skills for college and career readiness.  It is evident that the Franklin teachers and families hold the students in a top priority position as we teach and develop the whole child!  Together, let’s have another successful school year!
