Fantastic Start to School

Gretchen Bucsko September 6, 2019

We are having a fantastic start to the school year! I am so proud to be the Head of School at The Franklin Academy. It is so wonderful to have our students back in their classrooms again. I love walking around and seeing their enthusiasm for learning.

Here are a few of the quotes I heard this week:

” I like school ’cause I get to learn. I like the lockers that we got.” – Lincoln (1st grade)

“I like the playground”- Huner (Kindergartener)

“I like playing with kids”- Nova (2.5 year old program)

“I like….just everything!”- Nora (Early Kindergarten program)

“The first day was the best. We got to know each other and share memories. It was the perfect day.”-Sophie (2nd grade)

“I like being with my friends.”- Brynn (4th grade)

“I like Spanish and PE. We got to play Sprout ball!”-Bella (7th grade)

“We like math and coding. The teachers are really nice.”-Will and Brice (6th grade)

One more heard from a middle school student…”REAL Homework!!! FINALLY! Yes!”
