    Principal’s Notes

    Dear Community,

    We have had a busy week, even though it was a short one.

    • We had an amazing turn out for our Higher Ground affinity group presentation for our African American students.  See the photo link below. The two events over the last two weeks allows for our students to hear from past students who have moved through these halls speak words of wisdom around transition to postsecondary options is so vital and relevant.


    • Community Meeting for Selection of Franklin High School’s New Principal


    Date: Monday, January 29, 2018          Time: 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.             Location: Franklin HS Library

    As many of you know, I am retiring at the end of this school year. It has been an honor to be Franklin High School’s principal. For the past four years I have been humbled, excited, challenged and so very proud of our students, staff and professional educators who have created a culture of excellence at this storied high school. So as the search for a new principal for Franklin begins, we invite staff, parents, and students to attend a Community Meeting to understand the process for selection of next year’s principal and to get your ideas and input; they are important! If you cannot make this event you can give your input via an on-line survey at  or stop by the school and we will provide a hard copy.

    •  Buy your Auction tickets! 
    • First Semester grades will be posted on the TRANSCRIPTS.  Please review your students’ performance with them and have the frank conversation about what they are doing well that gives them the results they are looking for and if they are struggle, what supports do they need?  Reach out to us for ideas.  We are a team and can help.
    • We are in the beginning phases of forecasting, be looking for information coming from your students. Forecasting will be done a little differently for current students this year.  We will be meeting with each grade of students in an assembly where materials will be handed out. Once they are filled out and signed by parents, the students will be entering them into the system with counselors during class.  Please discuss student choices with them and join us for the Forecasting Night to answer all your questions about courses.

    Here is the timeline for internal forecasting:

      • Forecasting Night is February 8th from 6-8.
      • Grade 9 rising 10-Assembly Feb 1-2- Sheets signed and ready for input: Feb 12-19
      • Grade 10 rising 11-Assembly Feb 6- Sheets signed and ready for input: Feb 12-19
      • Grade 11 rising 12-Assmbly Feb 7-Sheets signed and ready for input: Feb 12-19
    • Please be aware that due to space limitations, our school, as well as Lincoln,  will be closed to hardship petition transfers for 2018.  Please know that all requests will have to go through district and meet the district requirements.  We will only be forecasting students who have a Franklin address and all 8th graders will need to show proof of address during forecasting this year.   We are all proud of our school but the message is clear.  We are expecting record numbers that will elevate us to the largest school in PPS and we are only enrolling those within our boundaries.
    • Counselors will be in the main hallway next week on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday during lunch time to field students’ questions about their schedules for second semester.  We require students to complete forms to make any changes for next semester.  Please know that there are very few options as most classes go for two semesters, making it impossible to switch into a class mid year.  Study halls have limited capacity, and do not award credit.  Any core class – math, science, foreign language, English and history class may not be changed without administrative approval, even if the graduation credits have been attained.


    Enjoy your weekend.
