      Students Tour Franklin



  • Principal’s Notes

    Welcome Back,

    I hope you all are continuing to have a great restful summer. Welcome to our new freshman parents. This is one of our communication vehicles.  It comes to you weekly in collaboration with our PTSA.

     We are busy here in our FABULOUS new re-modernized building.  It is beyond words the amount of excitement we have had in preparing to open this 2017-2018 School Year.  Construction is very much on track and rapidly finishing up. Detail work is being completed and there will be minimal impact on the start of school.  When we started this journey three years ago, it was really hard to have envisioned how astonishing this process would be and what an amazing school facility that would be built.  We no longer have to envision this, it is our reality. This bond has given our community’s students such a great opportunity to support their academic journey with contemporary tools to get the work done.   Thank you to our community, taxpayers and supporters of PPS for this enormous gift.

     “I have never been so excited to go to school in my life” was a quote of a student who toured our building this Tuesday.  That says it all.

    See you next week,

    Juanita Valder


    Construction Reminders:

    • The east side of the building closest to Clinton Park is live construction site.  It is off limits to the public and staff. You must be geared up in a hard hat to in this area.
    • All parking is off site until the first week of school.

    Please respect the “keep off the grass” signs.  It is growing as fast as it can, lets hel
