Words cannot express how excited I am to start the 2019-2020 school year. It was such a pleasure seeing so many familiar faces and meeting some of our new students and families at registration this week. Its’ been a busy summer of planning and preparing and each day we get closer to welcoming our students for this school year. I would like to send a heartfelt thank you to our PTSA, parents, students, and partners who volunteered this week with registration. Your efforts assisted in creating a welcoming and supportive environment for our families as they enroll our students.
Lastly, I cannot send enough appreciation and thanks to the FHS staff who assisted with our School Registration. Our goal was to provide an efficient yet reassuring process for our students and families. The feedback from Franklin families was both positive and informative. We are off to a good start and wish to continue the positive momentum we’ve already created with our school community.
