"A Taste of Franklin" Sponsored by the PTA

Attention Parents:
Please follow these guidelines for morning drop off:
  • Kindergarten and First Grade will meet on the lower playground
  • Second, Third, and Fourth Grade will meet on the upper playground
Please remember that parents are not allowed on the playground in the morning.
Please drop your child off at the gate on their correct playground and staff members will be there to watch the children.
In the event of inclement weather, the children will enter through the front door and meet their teachers in the auditorium.
Thank you for your cooperation!




For the winter months you will see 2 big RED circles. One will be on the front gate of the playground and one will be on the rear gate on the playground.  This means that the children will be inside on that specific morning.  Please make sure that you drive your children around to the Main Entrance of the school.  Students will not be allowed to enter the building through any other door.  All doors and gates will be locked at all times for security reasons.  So remember, if the big RED circles are outside, the children will be indoors.
Thank You.

About Franklin School...

Franklin Elementary School proudly serves a community that is rich in cultural and ethnic diversity. Built in 1931, this colonial style structure is situated on a spacious tree-lined four-acre campus. Franklin School has an enrollment of approximately 500 students in grades Kindergarten through Fourth. The typical class has approximately twenty pupils. The teachers, administration, and staff work in concert to provide an environment that nurtures learning, academic and personal growth, community spirit and a positive self-image in our students. Each child is encouraged to achieve to his/her fullest potential.
Franklin School has a strong academic curriculum that encourages skill development in the areas of Language Arts Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Special area teachers provide instruction in the areas of Health and Physical Education, Art, Vocal Music, Library Science, Computers and Spanish on a regular basis. Instrumental music lessons, band, and orchestra are available to all third and fourth grade students.

The school’s Title I Targeted Assistance Program and Resource Center provide small group and individualized instruction for selected students to help remediate skill deficiencies and improve self-confidence. The Title I Program features a networked computer lab that enables the students to work at their own pace and level in a variety of skill content areas. A supplementary program for academically gifted and talented students is also available for those students who meet the district’s established eligibility criteria.

Franklin School offers a summer and after school remediation and preparation program (grades two through four) for students who are in need of additional instructional time beyond the normal school day.

Franklin School has an active Parent Teacher Association. The PTA works diligently on behalf of the students and school community. Through their various fund raising activities, the PTA provides many special assembly programs and purchases materials and equipment that supplement the students’ instructional program. In addition, the PTA sponsors a host of fun-filled family oriented activities including Franklin Fun Day, the Holiday Music Program and the Spring Arts and Music Festival. Each year, parents provide hundreds of volunteer hours for the betterment of our school. Parental involvement is one of Franklin School’s most treasured resources.

At Franklin Elementary School, it is our mission to instill P.R.I.D.E. into our students. The acronym at our schools stands for the following:
Franklin Elementary School students are:

P. Proud
R. Ready
I. Intelligent
D. Determined
 E. Educated

Our mission at Franklin School is for all students to succeed academically, socially, emotionally and maintain an active healthy lifestyle. To achieve our mission we will provide a safe and clean learning environment, a challenging academic curriculum and a strong sense of community. We are confident that by creating a partnership with families and community we will achieve our mission.
