Benjamin Franklin was a scientist and diplomat. At Franklin STEAM Magnet, we are all scientists and diplomats.

  • Scientist - a person learned in science; a Scientific investigator
  • Diplomat - one employed or skilled in diplomacy (skilled in working with others without arounsing hostility)

Franklin scientists and diplomats are:

  1. Respectful - "Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment."*

  2. Responsible - "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."*

  3. Innovative and Creative - "To cease to think creatively is to cease to live."*

  4. Risk Takers - "Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out."*

  5. Problem Solvers - "Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle."*

  6. Goal Setters - "Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning."*

  7. Friendly/Team Builders - "It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it."

  8. Hard Workers/Doers - "Energy and persistence conquer all things."*

  9. Learners - "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."*

  10. Fun Loving - "The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself."*

*Benjamin Franklin quote

At Franklin, we acknowledge the hard-working scientists and diplomats who exhibit these character traits. Students are recognized at our monthly Flyer Rally, which is held on the first Friday of each month.
