    Franklin Families and Students,


    On Wednesday, October 21 all PPS high school students will participate in a district wide Career and College planning event.  This experience is akin to the PSAT & Career & College Days that we've held in previous years.  The district will run a special schedule for the Tools to Build Your Future Day which will support and meet one career related learning experiences (CRLE)  graduation requirements for students.  This is a special day as it allows students to consider and explore options for life after graduation.  


    Who: All PPS high school students grades 9-12


    What: Students will engage in career awareness interactive sessions with the industry’s most dynamic and respected speakers in their fields, representing a broad range of career pathways and hear the latest guidance and insights from local and national experts to address all postsecondary options, including: job readiness, financial aid, 2 & 4 year college options, first generation supports, trades/certifications, athletics, culturally specific supports, and more. Students will choose to participate in career pathways and workshops that spark their interest.


    When: Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 10:00 AM - 3:20 PM


    Where: pps.net/myfuture2020


    Why:  All students will have the opportunity to explore two career pathways with industry professionals in the morning and students in grades 11 and 12 will participate in 3 different action-oriented workshops to begin planning for what they may pursue after high school. Students in grades 9-11 can also earn a career related learning experience (CRLE) toward graduation.

    SITE Council Involvement - Students and Parents needed

    Last year the Franklin High School Site Council took bold steps in furthering the mission of our school.  I am reaching out to gauge interest from families and students who may be interested in participating on the Franklin HS Site Council this school year. 


    There are many new district initiatives, school programs and opportunities all geared to meeting the needs of our students.  This body of work will need guidance and the Site Council will be instrumental;  as we monitor our School Continuous Improvement Plan (SCIP).


     We are looking forward to creating a diverse team that represents and honors the multiple perspectives within our community; all prepared to continue to guide Franklin HS to the greatness we are capable of achieving together. Please email Chris Frazier cfrazier@pps.net  if you are interested in serving. 


    Emergency Delivery Service for School Materials

    Franklin is partnering with PPS Transportation to offer delivery of materials for students and/or families who are unable to come to Franklin to pick up materials.  This is a limited service and is only available to those who are unable to come to Franklin.  If you know of a student/family in need of this emergency delivery service for curriculum materials, textbooks, technology, etc. please complete this request form (you can give this form to the student as well).  Ayn Frazee (afrazee@pps.net) can be contacted directly with student info if there is difficulty with filling out the form.  In addition, If you are aware that a student and/or family is in need of non-curricular materials (ex. hygienic products) delivery, SUN may be able to assist depending on availability.  

    A Message from PPS Graduation Partner: Jostens  To the Class of 2021

    Jostens knows words like “virtual” and “hybrid” are not words you normally associate with school; and certainly not your senior year. The challenges you and we have experienced have been both substantial and challenging.


    While many things have changed, one thing that has not changed is the tradition of graduation. Come June, you will be recognized, you will be rewarded, you will be celebrated. To secure that reality, you will be placing your graduation order for your Cap & Gown and other graduation materials in an event we are calling “Senior Graduation Order Week”.   Any orders placed during “Senior Graduation Order Week” are covered by a non-graduate refund policy.  


    You will be receiving information next week from Jostens. These emails are extremely important as they will provide you with the information and advice you need to create the perfect graduation experience for you and your senior. And just like the beginning of the school year, the process will be done virtually.


    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to Jostens as you receive the ordering emails.  We want to make this as simple as possible.


    Land Acknowledgement 

    We acknowledge that Franklin High School and every space that we utilize during the many years of a student’s learning journey has taken place on indigenous lands. As such, we honor the tribal people whose way of life, traditions, culture, and in every sense their ways of being was taken from them. Acknowledgement is a simple, powerful way of showing respect for those whose land we are on and a step toward correcting the stories, practices, languages, and art that erase indigenous people’s history and culture and toward inviting and honoring the truth and relationships with indigenous land resources and communities.


     Indigenous people have lived here since time immemorial. The Portland metropolitan area covers both sides of the Columbia River and Willamette River. In this broad area there were numerous tribes, peoples, and villages that honored the abundance that the lands offered. We honor their history and acknowledge their sacrifices. In the Portland metropolitan area the tribes are the Multnomah (a band of the Chinook), Wasco, Cowlitz, Klamath, Clackamas, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia and Willamette River. Let us also acknowledge the robust present day federally recognized tribes of this area which are the Grand Ronde, Siletz, and Cowlitz. The urban Native community is made up of tribal diversity that originates from around the country representing at least 380 tribes with more than 100 tribes represented among Portland Public Schools. 


    Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier
