Principal's Message

  •  

    “Good character attracts the trust and respect of others,” is the motto our kindergarten through fifth grade students are encouraged to live by.  At Ben Franklin, we are dedicated to developing 21st century citizens with good character. Our rigorous curriculum, aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards in Language Arts, Math, and Science, provides students with opportunities to connect and apply their learning to real world problems.

    All students in grades two through five are equipped with their own chromebook, while our Kindergarten and first grade students are using their own iPad. These devices are theirs to complete work in school and at home. Students are using Google Apps for Education, a variety of district offered programs, and adaptive technology to learn and explore. Through these platforms, our classrooms are becoming blended learning environments where students can dive into Future Ready skills.

    Our kindergarten, first and second graders are developing a great conceptual understanding of number sense and Math through the hands- on approach of Math in Focus. Concepts are mastered by stages: concrete (hands -on), pictorial, and abstract. Our third through fifth graders are using the interactive program TenMarks as their primary Math resource. Teachers are providing students with opportunities for all learners to grow.


    Our students have many opportunities beyond the academic curriculum to become well -rounded individuals. We offer many related arts programs, such as Art Club, Chorus, Band, and Orchestra.  Our Student Council and Safety Patrol programs provide leadership opportunities for our fifth grade students. Beyond the scheduled hours, our students may choose to participate in clubs, such as THE BOLT Newspaper, Dance Fitness, and Theater Arts. Our BenTech Team gives students an opportunity to showcase their tech skills with the world. Our L.A.C.E.S. which stands for Ladies Achieving Cardiovascular Endurance & Self-Esteem, promotes healthy active lifestyle for young ladies. This year, we launched a series of new clubs including: Game Time where students will learn good sportsmanship habits through games, Student Book Club, and TED-Ed.


    Benjamin Franklin School enjoys a solid base of community support through our PTA. This organization provides many additional resources and activities to our students and families. We value the importance that families play in the success of their children’s education as we build a strong connection whenever possible.
