Principal's Page

Welcome to Franklin Elementary!
My name is Vicki Ritchie and I am serving the Franklin School community as the Interim Principal.


I am a retired administrator working most of my career in Sheboygan, working as a principal or AP at: Farnsworth Middle School; Cleveland Elementary, Alternative Programs, and lastly at Horace Mann Middle School.  I am enjoying working with the students, staff and parents here in Manitowoc. 


I believe that all students can succeed!  As a part of the Franklin team, we seek to bring out each students’ gifts!  Always encouraging each to stretch and grow to their full potential.  It is very exciting to be working alongside students as they achieve.

Outside of the school day, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog, Paxton, and cranky cat, Willow.  We live on a small lake, so we enjoy pedal pontooning, kayaking and paddle boarding.  In winter, we just try to stay warm!

I look forward to meeting you and your family.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or ideas. 

Looking forward to great accomplishments as we close out the 2021-22 school year,.

Go Falcons!!
