Welcome to Ben Franklin Elementary School

April 1st, 2019

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Friends,

 It seems crazy to think that we are in April already when it feels like we just started this school year!  The school year has absolutely flown by.  However, it is now April and we only have two months left of the 2018/2019 school year. Even though only a short time is left, we have multiple opportunities for involvement and participation coming up in April and May.

 Beginning Monday, April 15, all students in 3rd-4th grade will begin taking the PSSA, Pennsylvania State Standardized Assessment. Testing and make-up days run from April 15th – May 3rd.  Please make sure your child is on time to school those days, has plenty of rest at night, and eats a healthy breakfast. All of our students and teachers have worked diligently to prepare our students for this assessment. We want our students to “show what they know” on those days. Please encourage your child to do their very best.

Thank you for your continued support,

Will Towson
Principal, Ben Franklin School
