In January, Apollo’s 3rd graders and 3rd/4th grade dual language classes had a visit from a real VIP: Founding Father Benjamin Franklin!  “Ben” stopped by as part of the students’ American History unit; the inventor, statesman, publisher, and man-for-all-seasons reminisced about his political life, writings, and scientific improvements.

Although he didn’t bring along his kite or key, the discoverer of electricity also shared the many ways in which our lives today are influenced by the role he played in founding our country.
