    Franklin STRONG Winner

    Throughout the week students are recognized by staff members for exhibiting Franklin STRONG values as students Strive to be Thoughtful, Respectful, Organized, Neighborly, and Generous.  Students put these “STRONG tickets” in a box in the main office and a name is pulled from that box each week to acknowledge and celebrate that particular student.

    This week’s STRONG Recognition:  Cole Roufs: Grade 10    Recognized by: Ms. Ryda Thuch

    Cole will receive credit at the FHS Student Store!

    Australian Wild Fires: One of our students is asking our community to please support the efforts of the Australian Red Cross to provide aide for the areas affected by the wild fires in Australia. You can donate by clicking on this link https://www.redcross.org.au/ or dropping off your donation in the FHS main office.

    PTSA News:

    Ongoing nominations for Educator of the Month: If you or your student would like to show your appreciation to a member of the FHS staff, you can recognize their contribution by nominating them for Educator of the Month.  The PTSA will randomly select two staff members, who will receive a small gift. We encourage students, parents, and staff to nominate any member of the FHS staff whom they feel deserves special recognition.

    Earn money for the PTSA while you shop! We just got a donation of $545 from Fred Meyer on behalf of the 149 families who linked their Rewards card with the PTSA. Imagine how much we could get each quarter if 300 families signed up! And 500?? Go to https://www.fredmeyer.com/topic/community-rewards-4, search for Franklin High School PTSA or organization #EI267. Speaking of shopping, did you know you can designate the Franklin High School PTSA as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile?
