  • Dear Franklin Community:

    Well, we are now thawing out and only seeing remnants of the crazy snow we have faced the last couple of weeks. We are all glad to be back. A lot is happening as teacher adjust their curriculum and work their magic to catch students up. We have made adjustments to the calendar, which is reflected on the website and rescheduled events are listed on the calendar above. Please continue to check the website frequently as we will have continued updates from the PPS School Board on the remaining days we must adjust for. 

     

    Upcoming Events for next week:

    • The Classroom Law Project has rescheduled the “We the People Constitution Competition” for Saturday, January 21st.  All other details are the same (Federal Courthouse downtown, from 10am to 4:15pm). Please come and support  them!
    • Attention seniors applying to four-year colleges and universities!  Because of the missed days due to weather and the extension of Second Semester, grades will be posted by February 5th.  We will send mid-year reports and transcripts beginning February 8-9. Colleges are aware of differing semester schedules.  If you have specific concerns, please contact your counselor.Celebrations!

      • Check the website soon for some updated aerial photos of the new building!Quaker Program Highlight:
      • In September 2016, students on the Franklin Green Team applied to renew Franklin High School’s status as an Oregon Green School. Green School status shows that a school has satisfied a number of sustainability criteria and is actively working to reduce its negative environmental impact. Franklin originally achieved “entry-level” Green School status in 2015, but the designation expired after 3 years. After hard work from the whole Franklin community, the Franklin Green Team recently received news that Franklin has once again been officially designated as a Green School, one year ahead of our expiration. Franklin is now considered a “merit-level” green school, a tier higher than before, which shows that our school is continuing to become more sustainable. Stop by the display case across from C-12 to check out the plaque recognizing our achievement! Congratulations!
