Hey Hey Hey Franklin Families! 

I hope you have all enjoyed the first month of school - we sure have here at the Franklin! A lot of great stuff was going on all month. We got to know each other over the first few weeks and had an incredible Welcome Back Picnic. Not to mention Open House, our first pep rally, and a great Franklin game at NAHS Football as we cheered them on for the win! Overall, September was a success!

Now it’s up to all of us to continue this momentum as we forge ahead through the next 9 months of school. At our pep rally, our high school visitors gave us great messages of hope and how important it is to be a good person. I know that all of us will continue to work hard, try our best, and do the right thing each and every day. RAISE is such an important part of our lives, especially nowadays, and I applaud the students and staff of Franklin for exhibiting those every step of the way. Keep it up, because our world can certainly use an infusion of RAISE.

Looking ahead to October, I’m excited about the teaching and learning that is going to happen now that the staff really knows their students. We also have the Book Fair coming up with our annual Family Fun Night on October 18th from 6-8pm. And we’ll be sending October out in fashion with our now traditional costume day on October 31st. More details about that will come in some weekend updates!

When the first month is as smooth at this one was, I can’t help but get excited and hopeful for the rest of the year. This Franklin community never ceases to amaze me, and I know this will be our best year yet! Try your best, learn from your mistakes, and always be yourself… unless you can be Batman - then always be Batman.
