Spotlight- Our District Network Engineer
Is A Former Franklin Student 


May 15, 2015

Jonathan Smith is our Provo School District Network Engineer.  He probably owes all of his knowledge and intelligence to the education he received at Franklin Elementary School.  Here is a video with Jonathan explaining one of his first technology projects.  Thanks to Rem Wiscombe, one of his former teachers, for finding this video.


We won the Spalding Sports Pack donated by the Jimmer Fredette Family at the Kindness Rally.  

Thanks to everyone that supported the Rally.  We had 27% of our kids in attendance!  We won, against all the schools in the district.  Way to go! 

Franklin Fun Run is coming!
It will be May 8th.
Parents are invited to come run with their kids.  It will begin as close to 9:50 a.m. as possible.  Wear a white t-shirt and come have fun.  This is the 35th year of this Franklin Tradition.  If it rains, the race will be postponed until May 15th.  


End of Year testing will go 
until May 15th.  


Testing help:   Please make sure your student is at school every day. Make sure they are on time to school so they don't miss any tests.

All Library Books are due                         no later than May 15th.  

Please check your home for books the students have borrowed from the library this year. Thank you so much for your help.  


Congratulations to our April
Falcons of the Month.


Catch the Franklin Spirit.

 Spirit day is every Friday. Don't forget to wear your school shirt.  




Check back often to see what is going on at our school!

Franklin 2014 SAGE Tests

Percent Proficient

2013-14 SAGE Summative average proficiencies shown below reflect a new baseline for Utah's end of level testing. The new SAGE test is different than the previous Criteria Referenced Tests (CRT), and more challenging, and therefore cannot be compared to CRT results from previous years. SAGE tests are adaptive, with questions based on new Utah Core standards, and contain technology-based questions versus all multiple choice.
