Math Masters

It is with great eagerness that we announce our new, school-wide, Math Fluency Program named “Math Masters” which will begin in the fourth quarter. This program runs from K-8 and offers many opportunities for students to excel in math fluency and is tiered for differentiation. In order for this program to be successful, we are requesting lots of parent involvement to set up all the classrooms, run the printing jobs outside of school, and donations for the prizes and t-shirts students earn as they progress through the levels. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please reach out to our Math Specialist, Ms. Wilhelm, at Wilhelm.lesa@franklin-academy.org at your earliest convenience. Once we get closer to the start of fourth quarter, a detailed description of the program will be sent to all parents. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!

Calling all SIBLINGS!!!

Does your Franklin student have a sibling that will be in Kindergarten through 8th grade next year? Don't wait to put them in the lottery now! Our first lottery window closes this month and sibling preference is not a guarantee. The longer you wait, the harder it will be for your sibling to be pulled from the lottery for enrollment! Visit https://pbg.franklin-academy.org/enroll today!

Gift Card Donations Needed!

We would GREATLY appreciate donations of $5 gift cards for local stores and businesses, as well as iTunes, Xbox, etc. These will be used as rewards for student behavior throughout the school.

Middle School Field Trips

Please see the flyers below for information about our end-of-year middle school field trips. Please remember students with an outstanding fee balance or on service-hour probation will not be permitted to attend the field trip. Deposits are non-refundable.

Franklin FIRST

If you follow us on Instagram, you may have noticed our new initiative: Franklin FIRST (Franklin's Instagram Run by a Senior on Thursdays). Through this initiative, one of the outstanding seniors from our Pembroke Pines High School campus is selected each week for the Senior Spotlight. That student then will document their "day in the life of a Franklin Senior" on Instagram. Be sure to follow us on Instagram @franklincharter and check it out!
