    Franklin Families:

    We end another exciting week at Franklin as students and staff get back into the groove and rebuild their “school stamina”.  This week we held our school-wide Student Handbook and Climate Guide Lessons.  These lessons allow teachers to hold conversations with students regarding school programs, policies, and procedures.  With a school community of over 2200 individuals it is important that we all have the same understanding of the Franklin High School culture, values, and expectations.  All students in attendance this week were issued or given an opportunity to obtain a Student Handbook and Climate Guide.  Families are encouraged to also review the handbook and discuss with their child as well. FHS Student Handbook and Climate Guide can also be found here: Franklin HS Student Handbook and Climate Guide

     

    FHS Site Council

    We are currently looking for parents and families to participate in in the FHS Site Council. FHS Site Council supports the school mission and vision by reviewing the School Improvement Plan (SIP), monitoring school improvement progress, and fostering family involvement.  Site Council will meet each month from 3:30-5:00pm.  If you are interested please contact Chris Frazier cfrazier@pps.net

     

    ParentVue and StudentVue

    ParentVue and StudentVue will be operational on September 8th.  Students and families will be able to track and monitor student attendance and grades at that time. Your patience is appreciated.

    Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier,

    Principal
