Our Mascot – The Firebird

The Firebird is an independent and courageous mythical creature noted for helping others in need. The Firebird emerges from fire to assist other people and create a positive community. This mascot embodies the goals of academic excellence and constant participation. Using the creative processes of art, athletics, dance, drama, and music, the Firebird also represents the virtues of courage, compassion, fairness, respect, and responsibility. At Sir John Franklin students are expected to model the powerful qualities of the Firebird. Therefore, students should demonstrate a desire to work to the best of their ability and help build a positive community. Be the best you can be!

Who Was Sir John Franklin?     

The school was named after John Franklin, a British naval officer, and Arctic explorer. He was born in Spilsby, England on April 16, 1786. He led three expeditions in search of the Northwest Passage and was knighted in 1829 for his explorations of the Arctic Coast and MacKenzie River. Sir John Franklin's expedition in 1845 met with disaster. Evidence found in 1854 indicated that part of his expedition had perished, with the ships trapped in ice. Records proving Franklin's discovery of the Northwest Passage and establishing the date of his death were found in a cairn at Point Victory in 1859. In 1983, the University of Alberta found evidence that the remaining crew members had succumbed to scurvy and starvation.

Arts-Centered Program

Being part of the Sir John Franklin School community means being responsible to yourself, your peers, your teachers, and the community. Together we can make the school an exciting and engaging place in which to learn.

The Arts-Centered Learning Program focuses on learning in and through the arts. Our distinguishing feature is the focus in the core curriculum on learning and teaching using the arts as a means of understanding the world. Students are given
opportunities to learn, present information and experience concepts in multiple ways. In addition to more traditional
methods, students share what they learn through the discipline of the fine and performing arts. Sir John Franklin School strives to create a personalized learning environment that meets the needs of 21st Century learners.

Homework

Homework allows the opportunity for students to reinforce understanding of curricular content and practice skills learned during class time. Parents‟ interest and encouragement are invaluable to a child‟s successful completion of homework. Parents are recommended to provide a home environment that facilitates homework and daily reading time. As children progress through the grades it is an expectation that they will have increasing amounts of time devoted to reviewing, and completing assignments on a daily basis. 

The CBE recommends the following home study times.

Division II (Grades 4-6) – Formal assignments may be given at the discretion of the teacher, particularly for pupils who need special attention or help, but in general, assignments should be of the reading or study type. No school requirement should exceed 20 minutes in length.

Division III (Grades 7-9) - Students are expected to study or complete homework from 30 minutes to one hour each night.
