Welcome to Winter! I would like to take a moment to thank those parents who send their child to school and on time every day. Our attendance rate continues to be up from the 2014-2015 school year. However, it is declining. If winter wear is the reason for your child’s absence from school, please contact the school office for assistance.
Important Dates: Enrollment Fair January 30, 2016 at Milwaukee High School of the Arts, 2300 West Highland at 9:00 a.m. No student attendance. Monday, February 1, 2016.
Additionally, as an educational organization, we are committed to your child’s learning; however, we cannot do this without your help! Please make sure your child reads at least 30 minutes and completes his/her homework each day.
Finally, as a staff, we will continue to work hard to make certain that Benjamin Franklin will be recognized as a top performing school in academics, athletics, and other student activities. As we strive for excellence, we are becoming GREAT and We Are Defying Gravity!
