Hey Hey Hey New Franklin Families! Welcome to the Dragon's Den! We're very excited to meet all of you and your children. To get the ball rolling, we're going to do our New Family Orientation a bit differently this year. Our fantastic PTO is going to be conducting tours for any new families who would like to see the school and get to know a little more about it. Who better to give you a rundown of the ins and outs of Franklin than the involved parents who care for and support us so well! Come meet PTO President Marnie McKay-Perry, get a tour of the building, and maybe say hello to a teacher or principal along the way as we're working tirelessly to get ready for September 4th! The following dates are when we will have tours available:

Monday, August 20th at 10:00 am

Tuesday, August 21st at 10:00 am

Please meet Marnie outside the main entrance to the building, the tour will begin promptly at 10:00.

Volunteers needed for Understanding Our Differences

posted Dec 4, 2017, 7:18 AM by Hillary Stasonis

Understanding Our Differences (UOD) is a nationally recognized, educational program that teaches elementary school children to develop understanding and respect for fellow students and others with physical, sensory or developmental disabilities. Students in grade 3-5 at all elementary schools will participate in two programs this school year. Programs typically start with a 30 minute video or presentation about the disability, followed by 3-4 small group activities that run about an hour, and finish with a speaker and Q&A. We need volunteers to help with the small group activities. 

VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED for this special program! 


Your child does not need to be in the class to volunteer, anyone can!
  • There is a 20 minute online training session for all volunteers. 
  • Volunteers must have a current CORI on file with the elementary schools. Here is a link to the CORI form: http://nak12.net/CORI
  • More Dates Coming Soon programs are scheduled for the entire school year. We post volunteer opportunities a couple of months in advance and will add new dates throughout the year.

Dismissal Form 2017-2018

posted Jul 31, 2017, 9:18 AM by Joe Clarke

Hey Hey Hey, Franklin Families! Below, I have attached a copy of the Dismissal Form for you to fill out and send in with your child on the first day of school. This form enables us to know how to send your child home safely. If at any point throughout the year you need to change the dismissal plan for a day or two, please send in a note to your child's teacher that morning alerting him/her of the change for the day. If your plan is changing permanently though, please fill out the form and send it in to your child's teacher again. Thanks for your cooperation!
