Principal's Feature

Hello Franzen Family,

Welcome to our new school year. We are very excited to start another school year! I hope that all of you have enjoyed your summers with family and they were filled with vacations and relaxation. My summer was spent working at school, traveling to see my family, attending baseball games, and celebrating the birth of our second child.

There are many changes in store for Franzen Intermediate school in the 2014-2015 school year. There are plans in the works for a possible addition to our building, new mechanical upgrades to our building, and technology advancements for students and staff. This last advancement presents an exciting opportunity for our school community. Each staff member has been equipped with a new laptop for classroom use. In addition, every grade level will have access to a laptop cart consisting of thirty laptops. Classroom desktop computers have been replaced with lighter, more mobile laptop computers. Coupled with faster internet speeds and easier access to networks, our students will have greater opportunities to experience 21st century technology skills! I am very excited to see what our staff can do with all of these opportunities. We look forward to growing together!

As always, please consider joining and being an active member of our wonderful parent organization, IPTO. Our students and community benefit from your assistance, however small it may be. Because of all of their (and your) hard work, every classroom will be equipped with a Mimioteach or Smartboard device for this school year! We look forward to showcasing these devices during our Curriculum Night scheduled for August 28th @ 6:30pm. Our students will be doing great things this school year. We hope you can be a part of it.

Respectful. Responsible. Safe.

Fly Falcons, FLY!
