Franklin Friday News
What's Going On At #FAPBG-Week of February 25, 2019
It is with great eagerness that we announce our new, school-wide, Math Fluency Program named “Math Masters” which will begin in the fourth quarter. This program runs from K-8 and offers many opportunities for students to excel in math fluency and is tiered for differentiation. In order for this program to be successful, we are requesting lots of parent involvement to set up all the classrooms, run the printing jobs outside of school, and donations for the prizes and t-shirts students earn as they progress through the levels. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please reach out to our Math Specialist, Ms. Wilhelm, at Wilhelm.firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience. Once we get closer to the start of fourth quarter, a detailed description of the program will be sent to all parents. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!

We are launching our very first track team for Franklin Academy this year! We will be offering the team to grades 4-8. The first meet will be on March 7, so practices will start next week in order to be ready! All students signing up for track team will need a sports physical to begin. As this is an official Franklin team, each student will need to pay $175 in order to join to pay for uniforms, trips to meets and practices (https://businessmanagerpbg.wufoo.com/forms/studentathlete-registration/).
Practices will begin THIS Tuesday and will be every Tuesday, MOST Wednesdays and every Thursday until the end of season (end of April). They will begin promptly at 3:30 and end at 4:45pm. Please make sure your student brings work-out clothes for practice and appropriate running shoes. We will be doing drills, endurance training, speed work and HIIT workouts.
