A Message from Mr. Craft & Mrs. Mecca
Brrr! It is getting cooler these days and beginning to feel like autumn weather outdoors as we head into October. We are off to a great start to the year and have settled into our daily routines here at Benjamin Franklin. We want to thank all our families for attending our Back to School Nights. Our teachers enjoyed meeting with all our parents to view daily routines, grade level curriculum, and academic expectations for the school year. As always, we look forward to working with all our parents to maintain positive and productive communication to support your child(ren)’s growth and development.
As Mrs. Mecca and I visit classrooms, we see students engaged in rich and rigorous activities across the grade levels. This month, our classes are participating in activities to recognize and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Our students are having fun learning about famous places, people, and events from Hispanic countries from around the world. In addition, our Arts-in-Education programming continues to provide extension activities and presentations to support our curriculum.
Let’s get together! October offers many opportunities for us to get together as a school community. Please take the time to review our upcoming calendar of events. This month, we encourage all our kindergarten families to be here for Kindergarten Pizza Night (10/6); and everyone please join us for our scheduled STEAM/Engineering
Night (10/12) and our annual PTA Trunk-or-Treat (10/28). See you there! To Read More... Please click here to read the October Newsletter
