Uniform Reminders

As we do each year, we have given flexibility with student uniforms this first week of school and will do so next week as well. However, please note that beginning the week of August 26th, the uniform and dress code policy will be strictly enforced. Students who come to school out of uniform will first receive a warning home from the teacher via email or phone call. If they have a come to school out of uniform a second time, they will be directed to the front office where they will call home to have his or her parent bring an appropriate uniform to school for them before returning to class. Please see the powerpoint below for a visual representation of our dress code. Please email your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns.

Growth, Gratitude, Goals, & Grit

This year, we are focusing school-wide on celebrating growth, expressing gratitude, achieving goals, and developing grit. This week I would like to recognize:


  • Ms Chaplin, Ms. Bottenfield, Ms. Jabar, and our kindergarten team of teachers for jumping in with extra duties and taking such good care of our littlest Patriots during their first week of school. We are so grateful for you!
  • Ms. Varela for working diligently to ensure our middle school students had accurate schedules and for taking care of necessary schedule changes in an effective and proactive manner. This is a huge area of growth for our campus as scheduling is such a challenging process and we have many new middle school students this year.
  • Our new Franklin Families for doing a great job helping their little ones start the school year strong by following procedures and being patient with new processes. You have shown your grit in pushing through the uncertainty, confusion and frustration that can sometimes come with new experiences.
  • Our returning Franklin Families for being positive and supportive of our new families and answering questions to help them become comfortable at our amazing school. Thank you for partnering with us in our goal of expanding our Franklin Family and welcoming these new families with open arms.
