Benjamin Franklin

Message from the Principal

Welcome to our web site.

Each new school year brings the promise of new friendships, learning and experiences. At Ben Franklin Elementary School, we desire to provide students with a sage, enjoyable and successful learning experience. We believe that parents are our partners and welcome your support in assuring that our children become the best that they can be.

As a partner in your child’s education, we invite you to be involved in your child’s school life. Whether you work, are at home, or in school yourself, your participation in your child’s education, whatever form that takes, can only increase his/her level of success. Your support begins with assuring that students come to school on time each and every day. Of utmost importance is that teachers and the office be made aware of current telephone numbers (especially emergency contacts) and home address changes.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you to ensure that your child(ren) will have a meaningful and successful learning experience during his/her years at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School. Please feel free to call upon us at any time if you have concerns, questions or ideas, which will help us. We look forward to seeing you and taking with you throughout this new school year.
