Principal’s Notes


Today marks the last Friday of the school year.  Hard to believe that this school year is coming to an end.  It has been a wonderful journey watching our students grow and evolve throughout the year.

We will be on our Final Days Schedule next week, with Wednesday June 12th being the last official day for students.   Students are encouraged to take advantage of the Tutorial Periods each day, in an effort to make that final academic push.  Also we recommend that students and parents reach out to counselors and support staff about summer programs offered top our students.






Highlights this week:





Tuesday, June 4th was a wonderful occasion as we celebrated the Class of 2019 and the 134th Commencement of Franklin HS.  The Class of 2019 will fondly be remembered as the leave a rich legacy.  So proud of our students! Thanks to all our Choir, Band, and Woodwind Quintet for an outstanding job.


Thanks to our staff, parents, and volunteers, who worked behind the scenes collecting tickets, issued programs, and assisted with set up.

Adirondack chairs for sale: As part of a final project, the intermediate woods class is building VERY sturdily built Adirondack chairs. Capable of holding 3 football players, they are made from a combination of Juniper and Cedar, both of which weather nicely in the elements. There are some “natural features” such as live edge, bark and knots but these will not in any way compromise the structural integrity of the chair. Selling price is $95.00. The floor model will be on display in front of the woodshop door facing west on Taggart Street. Want one? Email woods instructor Mr. Silvernail at
