Character Counts!

Our student Character Trait of the month of November is Citizenship. Students that exhibit great citizenship are doing their share to make our school and community a better place, while cooperating, staying informed and voting. Those students are being good neighbors and always obeying the laws and rules set. Our student citizens always respect authority and protect their environment.


Families of those nominated elementary students recognized for their citizenship will attend a Student Assembly on Thursday, November 21, at 8:45 am. An invitation has been sent to those families involved.

Service Hour Information

As you know, parental involvement plays a vital role in a student’s academic success. Parent participation demonstrates to your child that you believe school is important. By participating in school activities, whether at home or in the classroom, many studies have shown that parent involvement increases learning gains, supports respectful classroom behavior, improves communication between the teacher and parents, and fosters an atmosphere of safety and security.


We have a convenient process for parents to participate in the service hour program. All parents must complete a one-time online application. The link for the application is located on our Franklin website in the Service Hours section. Once enrolled, you are able to access the service hour opportunities, sign up to participate and track your hours on our volunteer portal.


At the conclusion of each quarter, we calculate each family's completed service hours and post the totals in the PowerSchool Parent Portal.
