Dear Visitor, Parent, and Community;
Greetings! Thank you for exploring the New Franklin Elementary School website. We are a 1+ deep building, meaning we have one class of each grade level and two classes of 2 grade levels; approximately 200 students. The communities surrounding New Franklin and part of Falling Spring make up the vast majority of population in our school. In 2014, our building underwent a major construction project, so if you haven’t been in the area for a while, please feel free to drive by and take a look at the changes!
We have some of the most current technology in the state with IPads in classrooms and interactive, touch white boards, Apple TVs, and projectors. This allows us to make the learning experience for students more engaging and meaningful heading into secondary schools and eventually the work force. All classrooms, K-5, also have four iPads and four desk top computers for student use during the day.
Under new federal regulations, parents are no longer allowed to bring in food/snacks to celebrate student birthdays (homemade cupcakes, rice crispy treats, etc..). The food service department has issued suggestions and guidelines - feel free to either bring in approved healthy snacks, send in "school supplies" as treats for the class, or order food from food service. In any manner, please contact your child's teacher to get final approval on the day, time, and idea.
In closing, again thank you for taking the time to visit our website. If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as that is the easiest way to contact me since I travel between New Franklin and South Hamilton as regional principal.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already heading towards the end of the 1st marking period. Please be on the lookout for parent-teacher conference papers to sign up to meet with your child’s teacher(s). New this year, report cards will be available through the Parent Portal as a District goal is to reduce the amount of paper used across the district. If you have not signed up for an account yet, I highly encourage you to do so.
