A Message from the Principal
Principal Teresa Doumont
Dear Franklin Families:
 
It is with the warmest wishes that the faculty, staff and administration of Benjamin Franklin Elementary School welcome you to the 2017-2018 Academic Year! We are very proud of our school, community and programs offered here at Ben Franklin.
 
Our school staff maintains a nurturing learning environment where our students grow academically, socially and emotionally. We recognize that each of these areas is as important as the other and we strive to provide an education which addresses each area. The approach consists of classroom and school-wide practices that deliberately help children build academic and social-emotional competencies. It is our responsibility to work with the children and families of the Bethel Park community to provide the best possible environment for our students.
 
We realize the vast importance of parent involvement in student’s success, so we ask that you be an active part of your child’s life. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our students’ success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
 
1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life.
 
We are committed to providing a quality education and a secure and nurturing environment. The goal of this site is to provide you with pertinent information regarding our school policies, practices and updated information. Please take your time to review the site regularly. Our wonderful PTO board members plan exciting activities and opportunities for parents to get involved in the school, so make sure they have you email information to stay informed via their email blasts. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you.
 
Thank you for your continued support of our wonderful school and we look forward to another fantastic school year!
 
With Warm Regards,
 
Teresa Doumont
