Welcome to the Franklin Middle School. The end of the summer has come and everyone will be returning to school for another exciting year. Things have been changing a lot since school exited in June. We have now had all new carpet installed in the Media Center, Computer Lab, Title I Room and the Band Room. It looks fantastic!
We also have several new additions to our staff. We have Ms. Bruder teaching computers, Mrs. Dee teaching FACS/Health, Miss Gros-Jean as our school nurse, Miss Romero teaching fifth grade, Mrs. Dubois in Odell, Mr. Owens as our fifth grade special education teacher, Ms. Ford teaching math/science in sixth grade as well as Mrs. Doherty teaching seventh grade math. 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. For more information please contact Miss Rockenhauser 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 this year 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.
