After School Enrichment

No Fee Programs


Chorus

The Franklin Chorus meets on Wednesdays after school and gives primary grade (1st – 3rd) students an opportunity to perform at various school events. Notices will go out in the Thursday folder when this begins.

Drama

The Drama Club meets on Wednesdays after school and gives upper grade (4th – 6th) students an opportunity to create their own production. Notices will go out in the Thursday folder when this begins.

Newspaper Club

The Franklin News club is an enrichment program targeting 4th through 6th graders who have either been identified as part of the gifted and talented (GATE) program or selected by their teachers as potential candidates. The club explores the skills necessary to produce a newspaper, including reporting, creative writing, photography, editing, illustration and design; and it produces two school newspapers during the year. The goal is to expose students to different creative avenues – from poetry to comic strips – while also incorporating lessons that align with the standards being taught in the classroom. Though the program itself caters towards the upper grades, the entire school has an opportunity to submit pieces to the paper and students look forward to reading each issue.

The school newspaper is also a great way to support school spirit and engage students in proudly communicating classroom activities and school-wide events to a broader audience, including friends, family, other students and the community. Meeting dates and times TBD.

Principal Atikian’s Book Club

The Principal’s Book Club provides an opportunity for all students K-6 to experience the same piece of literature and share their thoughts.  Depending on each students reading level, they will either read the book independently, read with help, or be read to – all of which build literacy skills.  The book will be announced and available during our PTA Book Expo starting September 30th.  We will also announce meeting dates and times and a reading schedule.
