    Franklin Families:

    This is it, we made it; the end of the school year and my last Principal’s bulletin of the year.  I want to thank the entire Franklin Community for such a wonderful year.  Franklin has given me so much to be thankful for as a first year principal.  I’ve had the opportunity to meet with so many supportive families, work with such talented students, observe passionate teachers, and work alongside an exemplary support staff; all within a community whose focus is to support our students while being Franklin STRONG. I could not have asked for a better way to start this leg of my career.  It has been a fantastic year and I look forward to coming back even stronger for 2019-20.  I wish everyone a safe and enjoyable summer. 


    Highlights/Updates/Reminders This week:

    • Schedules will be sent in the mail over the summer.  We still have some work to do.  We anticipate that they will be in packets in August.
    • Finals went smoothly and grades should be out within a week.
    • Summer Office Hours:  9 am to 3 pm.  Secretaries last day is June 26th and only Admin and one secretary are available during the summer months minus vacations.  If you need something realize we may or may not be able to accommodate. 
    • Summer programs will be running in the building this summer.

    As with any organization, change is inevitable and sadly we will be saying goodbye to some staff members who are leaving due to retirement or for other new adventures:

    Staff who are retiring this year:

    Tom McCarthy–PE Teacher/Coach, Clark Webster-Health Teacher.

    Sarah Shelton-Sped Teacher, Sue Gauss-Speech Pathologist, Sean Brownhill-Campus Security Agent, Adam Shaw–Campus Security Agent, Domingo Urrutia-Campus Security Agent, Sara Goldman-Counselor, Amber McGill-SUN Site Manager, and Emily Mather-Vice Principal.

    We will definitely miss them all and thank them for the commitment and contributions to our school.
