  • Dear Franklin Community:

    This week brought with it the band After Romeo at lunch time giving a great message around bullying, students are finishing us their AP test bubbling, connection for our ASP Mentors and Advanced Scholar students and our German students have arrived for their  visit.  All as instruction was happening!!!. It amazes me  how much we pack into each week, including real packing!



    Some highlights

    I had the fine opportunity to spend lunch with some amazing students from our sister school in Hanover Germany.  See photo.  Thanks to the families in our community who opened their homes to this great group.  Thanks to Mr. Grobey for his planning and support in giving these students an opportunity to experience the US and our students in anticipation for the Summer of 2018 exchange.



    • As we are completing the conversation and coming to the resolution of the use of  the “Quaker” nickname I am sending this message from HS Senior Director-Oscar Gilson. “We are creating a committee to make sure that the nickname Quakers for our school has not been disrespectful because of its religious connotations to students, parents and/or community members. If you have evidence or examples where you have experienced that the nickname of Franklin High School has been disrespectful or offended you or anyone you know because of its religious connotations, please share this information to Oscar Moreno Gilson at, if it is easier to share information with the principal because you want to hand it in personally, please put it in writing and give to her. You have until May 5th to share any information.


    • What's Up with GEAR UP?  CAM Workshop Series,  College Lunch Talks, and GEAR UP Federal Text Messaging Survey that’s what.  Students are working with our Gear Up coordinator and the CAM support team to deliver transition services to our sped and ELL students, they held college lunch talks with at focus on gender, equity and race and their impact on student success and our esteemed social studies teachers helped administer a survey to find out the reality of communication and the college application process. Thanks for your continued support of our students.



    • Good news for the Franklin Family: Lihn Oliver (9th grade) was our  FHS school spelling bee winner. She competed at the district level, WON and will now represent us at the regionals on Friday, April 28th! Woohoo! Great work Lihn! Congratulations on her district win and good luck next week!


    • Also Congratulations to Ivy Foxall (11th grade) for her 2017 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards National Silver Medal for Photography.  This is a major Arts honor which includes a visit to New York for the ceremony.  Way to represent Ivy!   I can continue to go on and on about our great family here at FHS.  I am always honored to be part of such an amazing community.
