I would like to thank those parents who send their child to school and on time every day. Our attendance rate continues to be up 1.0% from the 2014-2015 school year. Our current rate is only 89.5%. The district goal is 95.0%. School begins at 7:35 a.m. and ends at 2:35 p.m. Please ensure your child is in school and on time daily.
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 is 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!
