Benjamin Franklin Elementary School
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to an exciting year at Benjamin Franklin Elementary! The staff and I are anxious to meet you and your child. It is a sincere privilege for us to share in the growth of your student, and we are committed to providing the best educational environment possible!
While Franklin faces many challenges, you will notice many positive changes this year. The staff will be implementing several new programs that we can’t wait to share with you! We welcome back staff members who have been integral to the fabric of this campus, and we welcome new members who are sure to play an important role in the success of our students.
Parents, you are a vital part of the Franklin team as well! You are your child’s first teacher, a partner in his or her education, and a critical factor in achievement. Your positive attitude about school will lead to the development of a life-long learner.
We understand that students need and want to know what is expected of them.
We know that consistency and clear, high expectations are major factors in providing a positive learning environment.
We expect students to be at school promptly, attend regularly, follow school rules and perform academically at their potential.
You expect us to provide a quality instructional program that will give students the tools to be responsible, productive adults in society. We can do this with your cooperation and support.
As we embark on this exhilarating new year, please take the time to review this handbook with your child so that expectations are clear and learning is the main focus. Please feel free to stop by and introduce yourself and discuss your child with me. My office is always open to parents and students. Children are the top priority at Benjamin Franklin Elementary. I look forward to working with you!
Cary Palumbo, Principal
