Principal’s Notes

 

Franklin Families,

It was another action packed week at Franklin; who knew a four day week could be so exciting?

With such a committed staff, vibrant student body, and supportive parents and partners we were able to continue our momentum throughout the week with grand celebrations and community building.  Friday afternoon was especially exciting; the ability to see students and families enjoying our beautiful community and campus by participating in the May Fete Carnival in the courtyard then head out to back and watch the Varsity Baseball team celebrate Senior Day with an exciting win.

These are the moments that make Franklin High School so special; as we live our school’s vision statement of being Franklin STRONG by celebrating Tradition, building Community, and preparing our Future.      

 

Highlights/Updates/Reminders

 

May Fete Assembly

On Thursday we held our annual May Fete Assembly and recognized individuals within our community who have made contributions which enhance our school.  These individuals were “knighted” and join the ranks of other Franklin HS staff, students, and volunteers who have been recognized throughout our school’s history.

 

Please congratulate these amazing individuals:

Staff: Julie Palmer, Marla Baber, Will Fernandez, Clark Webster, and Linda Walden

Volunteers: Bones Jones

Students: Tina Van and Caleb Byrne

 

Congrats to our 2019 May Fete Knights!

 

Teacher Appreciation Week

It was a week of gratitude and appreciation as we celebrated our teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week for their dedication and commitment to our students and school community.

 

Special thanks to our PTSA for providing such delicious meals to teachers including breakfast Tuesday and lunch Friday.  Also many thanks to our Secretaries and Admin with making the arrangements of teacher gifts including plants, decorative rocks, candy bags, and a sweet treat coupon from the QSN.

Being Neighborly

We ask that students be reminded about being a positive member of the neighborhood and community.  We’ve recently received numerous calls from neighbors asking that student pick up their trash and to monitor their behavior, especially in Clinton Park when parents and small children are present.   Please have a conversation with your student about being Franklin STRONG and ways to be Respectful and Neighborly.
