  • Dear Franklin Community:

    The week is coming quickly to an end.  Weeks seems to be going by so fast.  We will be meeting soon with our DAG Committee, the community group responsible for supporting the visioning for the new build, to get an update about where we are in the process. Visually, we know that the walls are going in. We are on time and things are looking great!  I will share all the information as soon as it is available.

    Upcoming Events for next week:

    • FAFSA Parent Night Thursday at 6PM in the Library.  This is MONEY for COLLEGE. We encourage ALL senior families to attend.
    • Progress Reports are due on 9/28, so expect to see something in the mail the first week of October.  Please support us in making sure students are using the SUN tutoring after school and Tutorial times during the week with teachers

     

    Celebrations!

    • The ASP program did its first meeting today.  Make sure your students are filling out the form on line and bringing the PINK paper application with parent signature back to the main office. They must apply each year!
    • We have decided to start a new Robotics club to open up competition.  We thank Mr. Johnston for his energy and excitement in taking this on.
    • The Constitution team is up and rolling and the hard work has begun!  Great Job FHS.  Thanks to Ms. Hall for her work on this.
    • Our fall Shakespeare play is rehearsing nightly.  Great to see the energy back.
    • Thanks to the Student Store crew, who sold up a storm of FHS gear and treats at Back to School Night. 
    • Check out the winners of the Honor Roll drawing for this semester, below.  Congrats!

     

    Quaker Program Highlight

    Anne Meadow’s ninth and tenth grade English classes have been working on personal and group mandalas as they set the stage for the academic year together.  As Anne describes it:  “Students created themes for their mandalas such as nature, growth, unity in diversity and the emotional spectrum. These concepts inform our work together as a community and also lay the groundwork for our second quarter narrative writing and literature studies throughout the year. Students created personal mandalas that explored aspects of their individuality and then came together in groups to create a unified public art project. They had only one class period to produce their work outside and all did so beautifully.” I would have to agree!  See the photos above.

    Volunteer help for ESL students: ESL teacher Alice Weinstein is looking for adult volunteers to help in her 8th period ESL Support class.
