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.

  • Bike Giveaway
    Thank you! 
    What an incredible day for 30 lucky recipients of new BMX bikes, complete with helmets, locks, etc. The bikes were courtesy of JensonUSA, whose employees earn them for kids by commuting to work on their bikes. Kemi King from Jenson, Gail Ousley and other members from the East Hills Chamber of Commerce, Councilman Paul Davis and King principal Darel Hansen were all on hand to assist. Thank you to RPD for an outstanding assembly on bike safety for all 3rd-6th graders.
