    Franklin Community:

    Today marks the last academic day for the month of September. Hard to believe that the month is over. It’s amazing to consider how much this community has accomplished in such a short period of time. In reflecting on one of our school-wide beliefs of maximizing relationships; I am proud of the work we’ve done collectively to support this value.  Events such as Back-to-School Night, FHS Club Fair, SUN After School programing, Powderpuff football, and FAFSA application night (see attached photo), serve as a reflection of our commitment to create meaningful relationships with our students and parents through opportunities and shared interests.  As we close the month of September I’d like to send a heartfelt thank you to this amazing community for the dedication and support you’ve shown Franklin High School.

    Student Climate Guide and Handbook:

    Each week we will focus on a particular aspect of the Student Climate Guide and Handbook to keep the lines of communication open in our community.  Please take some time to review these focal points with your students as a concerted and intentional effort from all of us provides clarity and reinforcement.



    Student behavior expectations apply to students wherever they are, on any district property and at any school-sponsored activity regardless of location, including traveling to and from school. The major objectives of these expectations are to help students develop self-management skills and to teach the following fundamental concepts of living.  Additionally, staff behavior is also included to assist in the understanding that all stakeholders are influenced and impacted by school climate.  School Climate is a shared responsibility requiring everyone to meet the expectations to ensure a climate that promotes and upholds the Franklin High School Mission Statement.


    Franklin is guided by our STRONG expectations.  Franklin students and staff Strive to be Thoughtful, Respectful, Organized, Neighborly, & Generous.

    This week the newsletter focuses on the “Respectful” aspect of STRONG behavior.


    At Franklin we Strive to be…
