The Extra Mile

Going the extra mile to support your son on his extra mile.

A note from the Ms. Phillips

Dear Parents,

We had a great week, we had Franklin Writes on Thursday and from scanning the kids' writing it looks good. This coming week we have Cold Reads on Thursday, Math test on Chapter 10, spelling and vocabulary as usual and a Social studies quiz. In science we will start a solar system planet profile project.

On Tuesday, February 2, 2016, Franklin Academy will be taking part in the “Take our Daughters and Sons To Work Day” program along with all the Broward County Public Schools. This program is only for students in grades 3-12th grade. To that extent, I am emailing you the flyer explaining the program, as well as the student work packets that are required to complete if they participate in this program. Parents will need to send an e-mail to in order to have the absence excused. They will need to submit the packet to their homeroom teacher on February 3rd. Both the letter and the packets are being posted on our website today.

The Forms can be found here:

And finally, the recommit forms need to sent in as soon as possible. There are two recommit forms on the website: one form for students going into grades 1-5, one form for students going into grades 6-7. If a you would like to submit an application for a new sibling, you can go to the website to complete the application online. Please be aware that the enrollment window is December 1 – February 28, 2016 to be eligible for the initial lottery to be held in March, 2016. All new applicants must apply and participate in the lottery. New applicants with currently enrolled siblings attending the same campus will receive a preference for admission. Students who wish to transfer to MS/HS campus will have a one-time option of recommitting to that school using the recommit form. If you have any questions about the admission or recommit process, please feel free to contact me or Mrs. Povoli.

We need several items in class. A pencil sharpenr (heavy duty), expo markerss, tissues and paper towels. Please send in your volunteer hour forms found on the schools website so that I can sign them for what you have already done.

Thank you and have a great Weekend!!

Ms. Phillips
