Character Counts

The Character Trait of the month of October is TRUSTWORTHINESS for our elementary students and our IB Learner Profile Attribute is PRINCIPLED for our middle school students.


Nominated students that exhibit the character traits and attributes of the month will be recognized at our ceremony on October 30th.


Families of students being recognized will be notified by invitation.

We are trustworthy

Trustworthiness is being honest and reliable. Always doing what you say you’ll do and having the courage to do the right thing. Build a good reputation. Be loyal– stand by your family, friends, school, and country. Don’t deceive, cheat or steal.

We are principled

Principled is acting with integrity and honesty, with a strong sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of the individual, groups and communities. Taking responsibility for actions and the consequences that accompany them.


Please read our PTO's Contribution Letter information about your encouraged involvement in our school. Please complete the Contribution Form and return it to your child's teacher, along with the payment in check or money-order form, made payable to Franklin Academy PTO.
