Principal’s Notes

 

Franklin Families,

Just five days until we kick off the 2019-2020 school year. This week we officially welcomed back our teachers and as a staff participated in community building and professional development; as we prepare to open our doors for students on Wednesday, August 28th.  Our teachers are energized, excited, and committed to putting into action our Franklin Belief Statements of maximizing engagement, maximizing relationships, and maximizing evidence of student ability.  We look forward to our journey together.

 

 

Have a wonderful weekend!

 

 

Franklin STRONG,

Chris Frazier
