Attention Franklin Knights!! Next week you will be taking the Winter 2018 MAP Tests through your Reading & Math Classes. All grades will be testing on Tuesday, December 4th - Thursday December 6th.


 Teachers give students MAP tests to determine their instructional level and to measure academic growth throughout the school year, as well as from year to year in the areas of Math and Reading. 


To encourage everyone to do their best, your December PBIS Incentive (Movie & Popcorn) will be based on how well you perform on the test!! Your teachers will be monitoring your positive effort and engagement while you are taking the MAP Test. 


**If you rush through the test. You will not participate in the Movie & Popcorn Incentive!!** 




All students get an ID, but only those living 1.5 miles away from school or across the tracks on Bradley Ave qualify for MTD

Please let a teacher know that you need one and they can email the office (Vicky, Chandra, & Beth) and we will have it made by lunch or the end of the day.

1st replacement is FREE

2nd is $1

We do not make replacement IDs if left at home (only if lost or gone).

If your ID does not have your picture on it, please bring it to the office to exchange it for a new one 


We do have 1 trip tickets in case you don't have your ID, BUT we only issue 2 per student per semester, so please carry a dollar with you in case......It will be cold soon.

If you are not an MTD rider, you may not obtain a 1 trip ticket
