A Word From Our Principal

Dear Franklin Families, Welcome to Benjamin Franklin Elementary! My name is Bernadette Grzechowiak, and I am proud to join the Franklin Flyers as your school principal. As an educator in Anaheim Elementary School District for the past sixteen years, I am committed to providing each child with the best possible learning experience. I am dedicated to providing our students with a high quality education in a RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, and SAFE learning environment. Franklin Elementary prides itself on being a diverse learning community that strives to develop respectful, productive, and responsible leaders. Our 21st Century learning allows us to integrate relevant technology, collaborate, be creative, use critical thinking, and communicate effectively. Every staff member at Franklin Elementary is here to support your child to Dream -Believe -Achieve. Our teachers are your partners in your child’s education and they are happy to meet with you. We are proud of our Franklin community, and we have many opportunities for our parents to participate both inside and outside the classroom. I welcome you join our PTA, attend school events, or join one of parent engagement activities this year. I look forward to personally meeting you, so please feel free to come by, email, call, or introduce yourself to me when you see me around the campus. I am here to work together to make Franklin Elementary the best place it can be. Together, we will make this a successful year for each and every Franklin Flyer. Sincerely, Bernadette Grzechowiak
