    Franklin Families:

    I trust everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday and weekend.  I want to thanks the families and students who were able to join us.  It is always such a please to see our larger come together and discuss our students and collaborate and plan on how we all can be of greater assistance to one another. 

    With two weeks remaining in the 2019 calendar year I ask that we continue to hold fast to our Franklin STRONG values.  During this season of giving lets remain mindful of our community goal of striving to be Neighborly and Generous.  The holidays can be triggering and can evoke an array of emotions. However, together we can get through anything.  I ask that we celebrate our time together.  That we respectfully engage one another and embrace our shared goal of supporting the students, families and staff of Franklin High School.
