Happy New Year Franklin School Families!
I hope that you had a wonderful holiday! It is my sincere hope that your children had a chance to enjoy all that this time of year has to offer. I also secretly hope that they had the chance to do a bit of reading – grin!
I am very happy to announce that Franklin School has been awarded a Facility Hardship Grant to help build a new parking lot! With the assistance of former Superintendent Douglas Reeder, Franklin School was awarded a grant of over $300,000 towards the construction of a new parking lot to be built on North Township Road (the street side of the track). The new parking lot will add an additional 62 parking spaces which, as you know, are desperately needed. The project will go out to bid in January, with a hopeful project completion date before the summer of 2018. This is very exciting for Franklin School and I wish to publicly thank Mr. Reeder for his support on this project.
Our sixth graders will be traveling to Shady Creek the week of January 22 – 26. This outdoor camp offers students a hands-on learning experience into the world of ecology, wildlife and nature! Mr. Trefzger, Mrs. Kuykendall and Mr. Martinez will be the teachers in charge during the week. I know that you join me in wishing our students and staff a safe and fun week!
March 15 is Franklin School’s Spaghetti Dinner. Please mark your calendars for a fun night out. Thank you to the Parents’ Club for organizing the event. Take-out orders are available so if you cannot attend the evening, show your Bulldog spirit by getting a dinner (or two) to go!!!
I wish all of you a happy and healthy 2018!!
