The mission of Benjamin Franklin Elementary is to foster the creative minds, healthy bodies, and ethical spirits needed to contribute wisdom, compassion and leadership to society. Our academic program is rigorous and constantly evolving; we lead students to be flexible and take responsibility for learning and good choices.  Franklin Flyers are respectful; they resolve conflicts honestly and fairly, right their wrongs, and celebrate learning each day.

  • box tops


    We’re off to an excellent start with Box Tops for Education and 

    we thank you for your support!  We'll collect box tops

     throughout the school year so please send them in  monthly.  

    Each box top we submit pays Franklin Elementary 10 cents. We 

    will have quarterly class contests and monthly 

    drawings to incentivize participation. 

    Our first contest period has been extended 
    through December 19th, 2014.  The top three classes 
    and the winners will enjoy a class treat in January!  
    Read the attached flyer for complete information.
