Weekly Wrap Up & Announcements

We had a great week back from our Thanksgiving break. Our Yougetmore.com fundraiser started this week, as did our elementary district diagnostics. We celebrated our students' achievements with ice cream for the honor roll students during lunch on Wednesday. This weekend, our students are invited to participate in a chess tournament at the Boynton Beach Franklin campus. You can also stop by and visit Ms. Ellis and members of our Franklin faculty and staff at tomorrow's Candy Cane Hunt at Downtown at the Gardens. Visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/first-annual-candy-cane-hunt-tickets-39619656459 for your free ticket to the event.

2018-2019 Enrollment and Lottery

Franklin's enrollment window for the upcoming 2018-19 school year opens on Monday, December 4th. Current Franklin PBG students are NOT required to complete and submit a new application. Instead, you will receive information in the coming months regarding Franklin's "Intent to Return" process. During this process, you will indicate whether you intend for your child to return for the 2018-19 school year, and an indication of yes will reserve your child's seat.


Please note that if your Franklin student has a sibling who does not currently attend Franklin, but would like to attend in the 2018-19 school year, you MUST submit an application for that sibling. Franklin does offer a sibling preference, so please be sure to indicate that the applicant has a sibling who attends Franklin, along with the name of the current Franklin student/sibling, when you complete the application. We recommend you complete and submit an application during the first enrollment window which opens on December 4th.


Franklin's first enrollment window will remain open until February 28, 2018, and applying ANY TIME during this window gives applicants an equal chance in the random enrollment lottery, which will be held in March. Tours for new Franklin families will begin in January. If you are interested in helping with prospective parent tours or marketing, please reach out to Ms. Ellis via email at ellis.margaret@franklin-academy.org.
