On behalf of the FHS staff, I would like to welcome our incoming 9th graders, our returning students and our families, to what should be an exciting year at Franklin High School. Our building has become increasingly busy each day as more staff return and continue preparations for the new school year. Much reflection, collaboration, and hard work has gone into preparing for a successful year, and we are excited to have the opportunity to learn and grow with you.
We look forward to continuing to live the Franklin High School mission which calls us to “engage each and every student with instruction based on both tradition and innovation that broadens and deepens knowledge, increases skills, and inspires confidence. Providing a diverse and supportive environment, our educators, families and community prepare our students for a strong future and appreciation for lifelong learning and service.” However, this year we will focus more intently on how we can continue to work towards accomplishing our mission. Through increased opportunities for student-voice, intentional time and space created for parent input, time devoted for teachers to reflect and collaborate on instructional practices, enhanced community supportive partnerships, and a dedicated and caring support staff, I feel confident that each day we will take steps forward to creating the school community that our mission statement challenges us to become.
It will take all members of this proud community to come together for the unified goal of promoting and supporting our students’ success. We are looking forward to our collaboration in providing a safe and supportive educational environment that will allow our students to thrive. I look forward to beginning this journey with you and am excited about the opportunities that await us.
Teachers who can unlock students’ passion. Guidance in preparing for an unknown future. Smaller class sizes. Recognition of students’ lives beyond school. And free coffee.
Those were some of the recommendations offered Thursday by a five-member panel of current and former Portland Public Students during a one-hour forum that provided an inspiring kickoff to Day 2 of PPS’s Leadership Institute at Roosevelt High School.
