Please check your child's planner every night for important notes and homework assignments.  This is the best means of keeping our students organized.  
Welcome to 501!
 
I am very excited for this year.  This is my 6th year as part of the Franklin Towne team and my 2nd teaching 5th grade math, science and social studies.  
 
I have a bachelors degree from Drexel University in business administration and I earned my teaching certification from West Chester University.  I have a wonderful family...my wife Katie, Noah is almost 4 and Maggie is 2.  They are my world.  I love sports and do my best to incorporate them into our classroom.  
 
My goal this year is to prepare your children for the PSSA's this year, sixth grade for next year and for their future.  Accountability is a key term this year.  Our students know what it means.  Everyone is responsible for themselves. 
 
Let's have a great year!
 
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns during the year.  It is easiest to reach me through email (atrinkle@franklintowne.org) or the remind 101 app, but if you call and leave a voicemail I will get back to you as soon as possible.
 
Remind 101 -send a text to 81010 with the message @tri1718

Homework is required to be completed every night that it is assigned.  A lunch detention will be given for any incomplete homework assignments and a zero will be given to any assignments that are not completed within 2 days. 
 
Be prepared everyday!!! 
Be kind, courteous and helpful!
