Mrs. Kosis
    Welcome to Benjamin Franklin Elementary School!
         Our mission at Franklin Elementary School is to provide all children the opportunity to learn to the best of their ability in a safe, fun, caring environment with high academic expectations. 
         At Franklin, we believe in promoting academics.  Our professional staff works with the students in child centered classrooms where students are encouraged to be self determined learners.
         Our goal at Franklin is to create students who are successful in both their school and home lives.  We encourage you to work with us to help prepare your child for life during elementary school and beyond.  We ask that you become involved in school events, look through your child's daily agenda/folder, ask them about their day, read with them, ensure that homework is done, and attend curriculum night and parent teacher conferences.  Children who know their parents take an interest in their education show positive growth academically, socially, and emotionally.
         At Franklin, an emphasis is placed on character education through the use of our PBIS (Positive Behavior and Intervention Supports) program.  Students and staff focus on safety, respect, and responsibility.  We are growing Lightning Leaders!  We hope you partner with us to teach your children how important it is to be a good citizen and to give back to the community.
         I invite you to take some time to explore our website.  It will provide you with additional information about the school, programs, curriculum, instruction, events, and staff.
         I look forward to working with you and your children.
