COIN WARS UPDATE
It was a battle of the ages! Yesterday was absolute lobby pandemonium as all of our warriors made their final attacks. Who is the victor? Is it 4th grade who was knocked down to the bottom after the first day? Is it 1st grade who sat at the top the entire week? Will it be the prediction of 2nd grade to take it all? Is it 5th grade who rallied on the final days to get everyone's support?
Here are the final standings:
Last place - 8th grade
8th place - 7th grade
7th place - 6th grade
6th place - 1st grade
5th place - Kindergarten
4th place - 5th grade
3rd place - 3rd grade
The top two teams were separated by $125!!
2nd place goes to - 4th grade
That means the winner of our 2022 coin wars is 2nd grade! Congratulations to our victors! We can't wait to hear what kind of party you choose for your class.
We raised $5,043.36. Every penny will be reinvested into our scholars, faculty & school via our PTO. We don't pay one penny out to any kind of fees and it takes only elbow grease and fun daily updates to make it a success. Thank you so much for your support and we will see you next year!

MYP ID REMINDER
Beginning on Monday, November 14, 2022, any MYP student who does not have a school ID that day will be sent to the upstairs office to have a replacement ID printed. The scholar's Power School account will then be charged $10.00.
This charge will occur each time a replacement school ID is printed.
It is imperative that all MYP student has his/her ID on every day. It is a part of the Franklin Uniform Policy (page 19). Please speak with your scholar about placing the ID in their backpack as soon as school is over. This will eliminate losing the ID or leaving it at home. Thank you!
The National Center for Education Statistics states, "students who attend school regularly have been shown to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance. This relationship between attendance and achievement may appear early in a child's school career."
Please review the attendance policy below as it is stated in the Franklin Academy Parent-Student Handbook on page 8.
SCHOOL COMMUNICATION REMINDER
From the Parent-Student Handbook:
Communication between school and home is essential to the success of every child and the school. The following chart has been organized to support positive communication between home and school. Specific requests (conferences, etc.) must be in writing, by email, or a phone message must be left at the office for the specific teacher. Parents/Guardians are requested to notify school personnel in the following sequence if there are concerns:
If you are experiencing issues accessing Clever and/or HMH from home, the problem is usually caused by conflicting credentials on your personal device.
For your student(s) to access the HMH products at home, it is very important that you log out of your personal Gmail accounts before your child logs into Clever.
Please try the following troubleshooting steps:
- If you are using Google Chrome and have a profile setup in the browser, please log out of it.
- If you are logged into Google.com with a personal account, please log out of it.
- Then access https://clever.franklin-academy.org with either a Clever badge or the provided student username/password
PS. Did you know that your Clever Parents account can provide instant-login access for your child, in the event that they don't have their Clever badge or don't remember their credentials?
