Pre-K Class

The Pre-K Class is offered to 4 year old children who qualify. Pre-K students must be 4 years old by August 15. Students must meet ONE of the following qualifiers:

  1. Children who come from Low income/ poverty. (The family would qualify for the Free/Reduced meals program.)
  2. ELL: English Language Learner. (English is not the first language in the home.)
  3. The child currently has an IEP. (An Individualized Education Plan.)

Blended Preschool Class
Brandi Hayes, Teacher
The Blended Preschool Class is different from Pre-K and is a separate program. The Preschool Blended Class is for students aged 3 – 5 years old. This class is designed for students with special needs and IEPs, but also includes some typically developing 4 year olds who serve as peer “role-models” in the classroom.

Gentry After Care Program
The Pre-K and Preschool classes close each day by 2:00 pm. Gentry’s after-care and tutoring program begins at 2pm for students who may need aftercare.

Franklin Special School District offers many related arts classes at the elementary level. All children participate in physical education daily, music twice a week, art twice a week, and library once a week. Students in grades 1-4 also practice keyboarding in the computer lab weekly.


Welcome to Music at Johnson Elementary!!! In our music class we love to have fun while developing a good foundation for learning music. We focus on our National Core Arts standards to encourage creative musicians. Singing, playing instruments, and music learning games are just a few of the ways we build our music skills. During the course of their time at Johnson Elementary, students in music will have the opportunity to play Orff instruments, learn standard music notation, compose and create their own original compositions, and perform in school programs. Let the songs begin! For more music resources check out the following links:
