Message from the Principal
Great things are always happening at Franklin Avenue School. The school year is winding down, but we are still ensuring that our stars are thinking critically and solving problems creatively. Some kindergarteners worked on a prototype to design their own robots. They also determined how and why different animals can survive in their habitats. First graders are stating an opinion and crafting four reasons to support that claim. In second grade, the students analyzed why plants and animals can be found in different types of habitats. Subsequently, the students designed habitats for a given set of animals. In third grade, they are evaluating and analyzing information as they research for their country projects. In fourth grade, students are researching honeybees, bumblebees, and hornets.
Our students learned to honor our veterans at the Memorial Day Tribute. We welcomed about 15 veterans and several Gold Star families. Our Student Council put on a great assembly about Memorial Day, sharing many poems about people serving our country. Mr. Louis led the students in several patriotic songs to honor the veterans. It was a beautiful and moving assembly.
Our students are having a great time in the Makerspace at the end of this year. They are designing and creating giant bubble machines. They then have the opportunity to test their machines and refine their design. Many parents have volunteered to assist with the project, which is always so special. Thanks to those who were able to help out.
I hope you and your children have a terrific summer. In addition to vacation, trips to the beach, and days at the swim club, consider playing board games and reading regularly together. I look forward to seeing you at the many culminating activities here at Franklin before June 22nd.
