Welcome to the Franklin Middle School. We are now to the end of the school year. Boy time certainly flies around here. We have had some extremely exciting things occur here.
We had the author of Discover Your Dragon, Don Hyun Kiolbassa visit our school on May 23rd. He did an assembly for seventh and eighth graders where medals were awarded for the following categories:Academic Challenge 20 students, Physical Challenge 33 (students did between 46 to 150 curlups),and for completed workbooks 86 students.
The semi formal was on June 6th. The gym was transformed into the theme under the sea. The children were so pleased with the night and the great food which was all based on the theme. I would like to thank all of the community members that worked to help make this a fantastic evening.
The Student Leadership Council has done a fantastic job this year with helping out with events. They will be handing out personal messages to all students in the school as a way to pass on messages of self worth. They will also be setting up for the end of the year events.
Remember to ask your children what they are learning about in all of their classes. With the changes to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) things are changing daily. You should also look at the link to School Home Newsline. 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 Ms. Hurst at 934-5828 ext. 2226.
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.
Graduation is scheduled for Tuesday, June 17th at 6:00 PM in the school gym. We look forward to saying good bye to another fantastic group of young adults. We wish them the best in the high school years.
Honor Roll and Sports Awards Assembly is at 9:00 am on June 19th in the school gym. Please come and wish our students congratulation on these accomplishments.
The last day of school is Thursday, June 19. We dismiss at 12:00. Have a fantastic summer. Summer school starts on the 7th of July and ends on July 31st.
