Ben Franklin Elementary School

Empowering Academic Achievers and Lifelong Learners

  • Dear Ben Franklin Students, Families, and Staff,

    Welcome to the new school year! It brings me great joy to see our hallways and classrooms buzzing with excitement as we begin this journey of learning, growth, and discovery together.

    At Ben Franklin, we believe that each child's potential is limitless. Our dedicated team of educators is committed to fostering an environment where students feel valued, empowered, and motivated to explore their passions. As we embark on this academic year, our focus remains on creating meaningful learning experiences that inspire curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity.

    We also want to extend a warm welcome to our new families who have joined our Ben Franklin community. Your presence enriches our school, and we look forward to getting to know you better.

    Throughout the year, you can expect open lines of communication between the school and home. We encourage your active involvement in your child's education and invite you to attend our upcoming parent-teacher meetings, workshops, and school events.

    Please remember that my door is always open. Whether you have questions, ideas, or simply want to share a success story, I am here to listen and support your child's journey.

    Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of educating your child. Together, we will make this school year a memorable and rewarding experience.

    Wishing you all a wonderful year ahead!

    Warm regards,


    James Snyder
