Welcome to the Franklin Middle School. The end of the summer has come and everyone will be returning to school for another exciting year. School opens on Tuesday, September 1st. We are all excited to have the fourth grade now housed at our school. It should be a fantastic year for all!
We also have several new additions to our staff. We have Ms. Spiers teaching sixth grade, Mrs. Vandell, Ms. Peoples and Mrs. Subocz will be teaching fourth grade, we look forward to everyone joining our family here at FMS.
The staff is continuing to work on developing new and more enriching programs for the children here at FMS. Again this year, we will have a Jazz Band and Glee Club. Also all FMS students can elect to join band or chorus. For more information please contact Mr. Stevens our music instructor at email@example.com.
Ask your children what they are learning about in all of their classes. With the changes happening here to move towards the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) things are changing daily. You should also look at the link to School Home Newsline and the Parent Portal to check grades. The staff updates their information weekly about their classes. It is so exciting to offer all of these new things to our children. The parent portal is also open where you can track your student’s progress weekly. Teachers are updating the information on Wednesday each week. If you need assistance please contact Mrs. Baca at 934-5828 ext. 2221.
Please take the time to visit the school and become an active member in your child’s education. I look forward to meeting you and reconnecting with many of you again. Reminder that PTO meetings are the second Monday of every month unless it is a holiday then it falls on the Tuesday. They start at 6 PM in the Media Center.
I would like to start a beautification of the school yard this year. We need to look at adding more green spaces and gardens. It would be nice to look at adding a playground area for the children to use during their recess times. This will be a goal that I will ask our PTO to work on for the children of Franklin Middle School. If you would like to assist us please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put beautification in the subject line. Thanks everyone!
