    Franklin Families and Students,

     

    Today was a memorable moment for our school community as seniors came back to campus to pick up their caps, gowns, and tassels. This distribution serves as another step in the life of our seniors, as they move closer to graduation. It was so inspiring and uplifting to see their smiles, waves, tears, and cheers; which serve as an important reminder of why we do this work. I want to thank our students and parents who came out and helped us celebrate our seniors. Franklin is more than just a place for teaching and learning, it is a community built on relationships. It was good seeing so many of our community members, even being six feet away. Additionally, I want to send a special thanks to our Franklin staff who braved the wind and rain to come support our seniors; showing that the elements are no match for the love we have for our students.

     

    Congratulations to our seniors on taking the next step!!

    COVID-19 National Youth Steering Committee
    Two of our amazing law students, Shanthi Klein-Balajee (11) and Isabella Smejtek (10) were selected from applicants across the country to serve on the National Youth Steering Committee set up by the Mikva Challenge. Shanthi and Isabella will represent Franklin (the only committee members from OR) as the Steering Committee meets virtually to ensure that youth voices and ideas are heard and amplified during the covid-19 crisis.   
     
    Isabella created a video (below) discussing students' experience amdi the COVID-19 pandemic.  This information is powerful as we consider the mental, emotional, and physical health of our youth during this time. 
     
    Virtual Scholars Video
    This short video is a shout out to the 456 PPS seniors who completed one or more VS courses this year. As many folks fully appreciate, taking an online class which requires students to be self-driven time managers, strong communicators and persistent scholars, their completing an online course is not a minor accomplishment. The VS team is so proud of them. This video features the smiles and energy of the VS team and was put together by our own Elizabeth Ellis 

     

    Franklin STRONG,
