Principal's Message

  • Franklin

    Franklin Families and Students:

     

    It has been quite a week for our nation, state and our city.  It would be disingenuous not to acknowledge the events this past week and the impact that it has on our school community.  We recognize schools are a microcosm of larger society.  As a result as members of the  community it is our responsibility to be self aware while we also think of the feelings of others.   We understand the trauma and pain felt by members of our community as our society currently lives in a state of unrest.  Please do everything you can do to take care of yourselves in these difficult moments.  Be mindful that our responsibility is to assist our children as well; as we help them with their own processing and understanding.  Be sure to create time to talk with your children.  Give them a safe space to process and affirm that their feelings are valid.  Remind them that the adults around them are processing it as well.  Lastly, be sure to consider other healthy outlets like walking, exercise, journaling , or a favorite hobby to clear their mind.  

     

    Please continue to take care of yourself and each other.

     

    Franklin STRONG,

    Chris Frazier 



    UPDATES/REMINDERS   

     

    Forecasting for 2021-22 School Year is Starting

    Last Wednesday, we had over 50 staff members host and about 1000 students attend informational sessions about the classes and programs we offer at Franklin.  This Forecast Fair kicked off the Forecasting season, which will look quite different in our current setting.  One of the significant differences this year is that our Counselors are not able to be in classrooms to support students through this process. As a result, this puts more responsibility for completing this process on our students. I want to make sure you are aware of what our Counseling team and others are doing to support students during this process.  

     

    Forecast Support Schedule

    • Jan. 11th: Franklin Forecasting Website goes live with Grade-Specific Presentations and Forecast Forms to replace the paper versions

    • Jan. 11th - 14th: Counselor Lunch Drop In Sessions that students can sign up for through MyConference (see website)

    • Jan. 15th - 20th: Students can sign up for Counselor Slots through MyConference (see website)

    Forecast Deadline & Resources

    Preparation for building a Master Schedule for a school of over 2000 students is a long process.  Thus, looking to next year happens quite early and it is certainly a big ask of our students during this extremely unsettling and chaotic time. Having this important information from our students is the first step in assuring we build a Master Schedule that best meets the needs and interests of our students.  We appreciate you taking the time to support your student with this process and hope that you will find the resources above helpful.

    PPS Trauma Support Group - Black and/or African American student

    Enclosed is a flyer for our Black and/or African American students: Black _African American Trauma Support Group. There is a link to a form for students to register within the flyer.

    This space is "a safe affinity space for Black students to process and unpack the trauma and grief that they may be dealing with as a result of police brutality, opposition to the BLM movement, seeing fellow Black people lose their lives without consequence, the pandemic, etc."

    Please contact Diana Collins, PPS MTSS TOSA  (971) 930 -0832 with questions
