Franklin Phonetic School
Quality Education Stands Out!
Our Sunnyslope Mission
The mission at Franklin Phonetic School is to provide an exceptional standards-based education in a respectful, responsible, and safe environment that meets the needs of a diverse population through traditional instruction, current technology, and creative arts in a small school environment.
Being responsible might mean “Have books, pencils and paper when we come to class,” “Be ready to begin work when the bell rings,” or “Have our homework completed.” It could also mean “Ask questions if we don’t understand.”
Being respectful might mean “Raise your hand if you want to speak,” and “Listen politely when others are speaking.”
Being safe might mean “Keep hands to ourselves,” “Use objects appropriately,” and “Keep book bags and other objects out of the way so that others don’t trip.”
Our Franklin Phonetic School Handbook. You will want to keep this Handbook as a reference in case you or your child has questions about rules, policies or procedures. We would appreciate it if families took the time to go over the Handbook with their child. It would be especially beneficial to review the section concerning “Tardies” as well as the “Dress Code”. The school rules will be enforced after the first week of school. You can access this handbook and see other information on our website at www.franklinphonetic.com.
Used with Our Reading Programs
Fun With Phonograms
“Fun with Phonograms” products have been in existence since 1986 and were copyrighted and created by career educator, certified reading specialist, and school principal, Cindy Franklin. They have been used by schools and home-school parents with great results.
In 1996, Franklin Phonetic Primary School was formed. This school uses “Fun with Phonograms” products exclusively in the primary grades. The school has earned an Excelling rating for the past 13 years and has earned top scores on academic measures of student achievement.
Teachers who use phonetic methods such as Orton-Gillingham, Dettner, Total Reading, Riggs, Open Court, and Spalding find these products to be invaluable additions to their program. Fun with Phonograms products can also be used to fulfill the phonetic requirement of any reading program completely on it’s own.
By learning 72 phonograms and 28 spelling rules, 85% of all words in the English language can be decoded and spelled correctly.
Student, Parent, Teacher Association
Parental Involvement is Key to Student Success
Extensive research has shown that students achieve more in school when their parents are involved in their education.
Parental involvement can make a positive difference at all age levels. Parental involvement tends to be the greatest with young children and tends to taper off as children get older. Studies have shown, however, that the involvement of parents of middle and high school students is equally important. For example, a parent’s encouragement can influence whether a child stays in school or drops out. Similarly, a child may consider going to college more seriously when parents show interest in the child’s academic achievements and talk with the child about the benefits of a college education.
Reading together at home greatly improves reading skills.
Reading, in particular, improves greatly when parents and children read together at home. Reading aloud with a child contributes significantly to the child’s reading abilities.
Special Area Teachers
Special area teachers face the remarkable challenge of imparting expertise across grade levels. Our special area teachers also have a unique understanding of childhood developmental patterns as they help students grow and change year after year. If you have question for a special area teacher please email.
