Franklin Elementary

Franklin is saying farewell to our beloved principal, Mr. Stephen Williams, wishing him well as he moves to Lincoln Elementary School.

This year our school theme is “The Year of the Volunteer” and all Franklin families are challenged to donate at least five hours a year to the school. There will be a Volunteer Fair at New Parent Orientation and at Back to School Night. Think about how you can get involved this year and remember to join the PTA.
