Welcome to Ben Franklin School! It is truly an honor to be the new principal at Ben Franklin this school year! I am looking forward to working and getting to know the students, families, and staff in our amazing community.
During the 2017-2018 school year, we will continue to push academic excellence and will continue to focus on literacy. We have seen great growth in writing over the past year as we implemented Units of Study for Writing and are looking forward to seeing our students’ growth as we implement Units of Study for Reading this school year. The workshop model for literacy is fascinating; be sure to ask your students questions about what they are working on in literacy so you have a sense of the high expectations we have for them!
We will continue to grow our PBIS program so students are learning in an environment of respect, responsibility, and acceptance. Acknowledging social and emotional growth and supporting our students as they grow is crucial to making Ben Franklin the amazing community it is. We will continue to help students grow individually and look forward to having family support as we celebrate our community and its successes!
Thanks for taking a few minutes to read this message. Again, welcome to Ben Franklin School! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
Sarah Edbauer, Principal
