Celebrate Franklin Spirit Month
Celebrate our Franklin School pride by participating in our weekly dress up days. 

Friday, March 13 — Wear a Word Day: Students can wear clothes with words or letters on them. Teachers can also help students participate by helping them make a necklace with a word card on it or by putting tape on their shirt with a word on it. Be creative – the more words the better.

Thursday, March 19 — Wear a Rainbow Day:  Students can wear a rainbow of colors and patterns. Wear your favorite color or wear all different colors. Mis-matching is encouraged! The more colors and patterns, the better.

Friday, March 27 — Secret Theme Day:  Classrooms will decide what theme they would like to have for the day. Other classrooms will try to guess the class theme. Your child’s teacher will communicate the secret theme to students and parents as the day approaches.
Music Notes from Ms. Moran
This month Franklin students will focus on making music together. All grade levels will practice playing and listening during their drumming unit.

We will also begin preparing for their upcoming concerts held on the morning of Friday, April 24th. Mark your calendars for this special day of music, and hope to see you there!

Latino PEG Report - February 2020
After a loooong break, too long for the kids (they kept asking and asking the date of our next meeting!), we had our second Literacy Workshop last Thursday! 16 parents and 3 teachers attended (Ellen, 1st grade, Marissa, Special Ed., and Mr. Mofitt, ESL). Once again, Hector from WSPEI (Wisconsin Statewide Parent-Educator Initiative) came to conduct the presentation, Connection Between Home and School: sharing and learning together.
