Franklin’s Social Media Accounts and #franklinfamily


Dear Parents,

The staff at Franklin is dedicated to effectively communicating with the families and the community about all the wonderful learning opportunities for students and family functions that are happening at Franklin Elementary.

This year, we have created three social media account to help with this communication. We have two major goals for the use of our social media accounts.

  1. Communicate with the community about learning and family events that are happening at Franklin Elementary
  2. Sharing positive stories about learning or family experiences at Franklin Elementary using our hashtag. #franklinfamily


What’s a hhashtag imageashtag?

A hashtag is a searchable keyword or sequence of characters prefixed with the pound sign (#), included in a tweet or other electronic communication and indicating the subject matter. A hashtag is a label for content. It helps others who are interested in a certain topic, quickly find content on that same topic.

Hashtags are used mostly on social media sites. Anyone sharing content on a relevant topic can add the hashtag label to their message.  Others searching for that topic, can search for that label to find other messages on that same social media platform. Hashtags also provide a way for the public to express their story specific to a topic.

Our topic? Positive stories or experiences about our Franklin family.
