• Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s), 
    My name is Meagan Franko and I will be your child's third grade teacher for the 2019-20 school year.  I want to take a minute to introduce myself, as I look forward to getting to know you and your child throughout the school year.  Together we will make this school year a winning one!
    I graduated with a Master's in Early Childhood Education and specialty in both Spanish and Special Education.  I have a strong appreciation for diversity, and look forward to getting to know the diverse cultures, languages, skill sets, and personalities of all of my students.  My goal for this year is to create a positive and safe team environment within our classroom.  I believe this type of environment will allow students to reach their fullest potential throughout exploration, hands-on activities, technology, and both social and cognitive experiences.
    Also, what is a team without the fans?  As your child's first and longest teacher, and also their biggest fans, I encourage your participation throughout the school year.  I will notify you of opportunities to come into the classroom as they come up.  I know that it is difficult sometimes with work and busy schedules to come in, so feel free to e-mail me if you're interested and we can come up with alternative ways for you to participate.
    Throughout the year, if you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  You may do this through written notes, emails, or using ClassTag.   My school contact information is found in the appropriate link on my website.  All e-mails and phone calls will be returned within a 24 hour window.  I will not pick up the phone in my classroom while the students are in the room, so the best times if you would like to call and leave a message is usually before and after the school day.  
    I'm very excited to be your child's teacher and coach this year, and look forward to meeting you!
    Ms. Franko
