Dear Benjamin Franklin Parent/Guardian,
The staff and faculty of Benjamin Franklin School are happy to welcome our families and students to the 2017-18 school year. The staff have been hard at work preparing to offer students a quality educational environment. There is great anticipation of continuing to Defy Gravity at Benjamin Franklin School.
The goal of all instructors is to make school an enjoyable place for students to learn and grow. The staff has high expectations for all students and is committed to providing dynamic lessons for their students. Our highly qualified professionals will work collaboratively to provide all students a productive and positive learning environment. The top priorities at Franklin are safety and academic success for your child. Student success is determined by the partnership of all of us – families, teachers, students and community – working together as a team.
The staff at Benjamin Franklin believe that strong community-school relationships are essential to high academic, extra-curricular, and athletic achievement. Any successful school begins with parents and community members that are involved and supportive of the school activities. It is the expectation that our students will excel both inside and outside of the classroom. Your support with ensuring that students attend school daily, receive the proper rest at home, and complete assigned tasks and homework will be greatly appreciated and ensure the overall success of your child and future leader.
We welcome parents and guardians to be involved in the school as volunteers, members of the PTO/School Governance Council, and participants in all school events. Again, thank you for your continued support of the Benjamin Franklin School staff and program. Finally, I look forward to meeting you and your child on the first day of school.
If you have any questions, please call me at 414-875-4400.
