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!
