What's Happening

Principal's Message

Welcome to Benjamin Franklin Elementary! This year our theme is "Explorers" as we launch a new journey into the world of Core Knowledge; we are encouraging our students to adopt the mindset of an explorer in all academic areas.  Please be patient and revisit the new website often as new information will be added.  In the meanwhile, you are welcome to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates, and we look forward to greeting everyone in August!  Have a wonderful summer.
