Dear Franklin Families,


This year is just flying by. I can't believe we are in March already. We are so excited for the FunRun coming up. Staff are going to be "PIED" by our students and boy are they all excited about that! The PIE event will be Monday, March, 7th. The prizes are going out so quickly, help your student be a part of it, by asking friends and family for pledges. Or simply post it on your social media account for people to pledge that way. We are in need of more technology, it seems we just can't get enough! If every student meets their personal goal of raising $100, there is so much we can do for our students with the donations. Every penny we raise goes back to our students and staff to enhance their experience here at Franklin Academy. We will be looking for volunteers on the day of the event as well. It's a great way to earn your service hours and be able to watch your students have some fun!



Sincerely,

Ms. Rena Roseff-Tornopsky

Principal

READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY- MARCH 2, 2022

What is Read Across America Day?



Read Across America Day began in 1997. The National Education Association pushed to have a special day to encourage reading across the United States, particularly in school-aged children. The first Read Across America Day was held on March 2, 1998 (originally because it was the same day as Dr. Seuss’s birthday). It is celebrated on the closest weekday to this date in schools across the country, or for that whole week.


Literacy and engagement with reading are encouraged in children. This is really important and not just so that children succeed in English language arts; boosting literacy improves performance in other subjects. Young readers will develop their communication, well-being, and become lifelong learners.

Student COVID Policy


Please read the updated COVID student policy on our website, which was updated 2/14/2022:

https://franklin2017.s3.amazonaws.com/1/ckeditor/Student%20Policy%20re%20Covid%2019%20010222_LxKgr5NV_y.pdf


In addition, when a student is quarantining or home with COVID all classwork should be posted to the teachers Google Classroom. This work can be accessed by all students. As long as a student is able to, health wise, they should be completing their work and submitting it to the teacher. While we are not permitted to do virtual teaching at this time, a student can request the teacher have a Google Meet, when the teacher is available, to help the student with any questions they may have.

Please contact the teacher with any questions regarding the posting of work, or available times. All students should have already joined the Google Classrooms for their teachers, if not, again please speak with the teacher.


If your student tests positive for COVID-19 or was exposed to someone who tested positive, please fill out this form as soon as possible: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeszjAjkrahnu7wL6obAnuaQRaOHO2icBFx3iSQ0hOTT5JUJw/viewform


If you have not opted out of your student wearing a mask, please be sure to send them in with it. Students are asking for masks on a daily basis and it is challenging to sustain the supply at this rate.

ALL MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS MUST WEAR A SCHOOL ID AT ALL TIMES

Every MIDDLE SCHOOL student was given a school ID and lanyard. Your student is required as part of the dress code to wear a student ID at all times. Failure to wear the school ID will result in an infraction. Three (3) infractions = an afterschool detention. If your child has lost their ID and would like to purchase a new one. Please send a check or money order for $8.00 for ID ONLY or $10.00 for ID/Lanyard payable to Franklin Academy and dropped off in the upstairs office to Ms. Lauren. Our office staff will call your student in once payment is received for their new ID. Your child will not receive an infraction if payment is submitted while waiting for ID. If payment is not submitted and they have reached 3 infractions, they will be given a new ID and we will charge the PowerSchool account for the cost.

Service Hours

As agree to by all Parents/Guardians and defined in the Parent School Contract, Franklin Academy families must complete service hours each academic year. Each family is required to complete 8 hours of service each academic year. If a family does not complete their hours, it may affect activities for your student for the next school year.

Here is the link if you do not have your Service hour ID, use this link to apply for one on our Volunteer Portal: https://apps.raptortech.com/Apply/MTMxMjplbi1VUw==
