    Welcome to Franklin Township Elementary School where you'll find the absolute best teachers, students, staff and families!  When you visit our school, you'll quickly see how much we care about each other and our students: academically, socially, and emotionally; we challenge, nurture, and encourage them to be the best they can possibly be.  We have a focus on the entire child here at FTE.  It's no secret that our kids come first and we are crazy about them!  We put the students' best interest at the forefront of every single decision we make!  I absolutely love what I do and where I get to do it! It's an honor to be the Learning Leader at Franklin Township Elementary, Where Every Eagle SOARS! 

    Be the Reason Someone Smiles Today!

    You Matter.

  • Backpack Program Partners with Community Aid: Sustainability

    The Gettysburg Area School District has agreed to partner with CommunityAid, a non-profit organization with a mission to help those most vulnerable in our local communities.

    Ruth's Harvest

    All proceeds earned from the bins on our campuses will be earmarked for the  Ruth's Harvest and Franklin Friends weekend meals programs in the District.  The District will receive a monthly donation, based on the number of clothing items collected in the bins.  Additionally, our needy students will be eligible to receive clothing care cards to shop at their Hanover or Mechanicsburg stores.


    Please consider making a clothing donation!  (If you have more donations than what will fit in the bin - we can make special arrangements with the CommunityAid organization so the District receives the financial credit.)
