    Franklin Families:

    This week was a week of heartache as we mourn the loss of our beloved counselor Mr. Tran. The support of the Franklin Community has been overwhelming and is what keeps us Franklin STRONG. Thank you to all who have reached out with emails, phone calls, treats for the staff and warm thoughts. We will move forward to honor Mr. Tran with our devotion to education and community, and continue supporting our students on their future paths as he has done for so many.

    We held our first assembly of the year to rally our student body for Homecoming. Ms. Humphreys did an amazing job organizing our Leadership students, who took the lead in the games, cheers and increasing school spirit. Thursday we held our first annual triple header as our Varsity boys’ soccer, girls’ soccer and volleyball teams all faced the Madison Senators.  It was an epic evening and fun to watch our community support all three programs.  Friday we held our Homecoming game against David Douglas followed by the Homecoming dance for FHS students in the Commons.  Thanks to the FHS Pep Band and the Franklin faithful who endured the rain and supported our football team.  Our students did an amazing job at the dance, with ASB finishing an eventful week.

    Friday we celebrated Ms. Mercedes Munoz with a surprise assembly to announce that she has won the prestigious award of Teacher of the Year for the State of Oregon. Mercedes Munoz is a compassionate, equity focused, student-centered instructor.  Her advocacy for students knows no boundaries as she commits herself to providing equitable access to instruction for all students and by example holds our community accountable for doing the same. Ms. Munoz has touched the lives of so many students as she helps them realize their potential, utilizes resources, and provides the supports necessary to help students achieve their academic and personal goals.  We are a better school community because of the dedication and hard work of Mercedes Munoz.

    The compassion and love that has been demonstrated this week by students, staff, and our larger community serve as yet another reminder of how special Franklin High School truly is.  Thank you for taking care of one another.

    Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier,
