Welcome from the Principal

Coming through the doors of Post-Franklin you will enter into a learning environment. Students are excited to reach for a book, find a place to sit and open a page to go on their next adventure. Teachers and tutors act as their "tour" guide for these adventures and add to their love of learning. Students begin the day with morning movement, getting up and moving to music as they enter the gym with staff walking around encouraging them to have a great day. Before they leave for their classrooms, students high five Ms. Thurman and again receive encouragement for the day. This is a great place of learning and a welcoming place for staff, students and families. WELCOME TO POST-FRANKLIN!
