Principal's Update - January 2016
Ben Franklin names Teacher of the Year and Educational Services Professional of the Year!
We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Amy Reif was named this year's Ben Franklin Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Reif has worked at Ben Franklin for many years and served as an academic support reading teacher. Like many of our teachers, she is highly trained in a wide variety of literacy programs and strategies. Mrs. Reif is always willing to lend a hand, help a student, and support a colleague.
Mrs. Wendy Offery was named this year's Ben Franklin Educational Services Professional of the Year. Mrs. Offery has served as Ben Franklin's media specialist for many years. She is a multi-talented and highly trained member of the staff who is outgoing and always willing to help students and staff.
We are proud to have these two teachers representing our school this year!

The Return of the Benny

T - Talk quietly with friends
At the end of each lunch time, the lunch aides will guide the students in self-reflecting and award up to 3 Benny nominations for each class (one per letter of EAT). On Friday, winners will be drawn for each lunch period and Benny trophies will be awarded for the week.
Check out the fun trailer below. We used it with students at our recent Spirit Day to get them excited for The Benny.
