INDIANAPOLIS PUBLIC LIBRARY CARD OPT OUT LETTER
The Franklin Township School District is partnering with The Indianapolis Public Library to make sure that every student in the township has a library card. Having a library card ensures that students are connected to the wealth of print and digital resources that are available through The Indianapolis Public Library.
This partnership provides an opportunity to create seamless learning opportunities for all of your students, who might need to use their library card to access electronic resources to support their class curriculum.
Here are the details for The Indianapolis Public Library card:
· If your student has never had a card, they will receive a new library card that will give them full access to all E-Resources as well as limited access to physical material.
· If your student has had a library card but it has expired, if there are no fines on their account, their card will be renewed and only the number will be provided..
· If your student has had a library card, and there are fines of $5.00 or more on their account, their card will be renewed and their number will be provided to allow access to online material. They will also be enrolled in the library’s Earn and Learn Program. This program allows students to get out of debt by reading down their fines. Students will still be able to borrow a limited number of physical items and will have full access to all E-Resources. Additional information about the program is available at The Indianapolis Public Library.
If for some reason you do NOT want your student to receive a library card from The Indianapolis Public Library, please complete the OPT OUT information at the bottom of the letter below and return it to the FTMSE library.
FTMS East Fall Break Art Camp
From the Desk of the Athletic Coordinator
Greetings Flashes Fans,
Another successful week of activity is in the books for @FTMSAthletics. Here is the recap:
East Volleyball 8 advanced to the semifinals of the Marion County Tournament this past Saturday, 9/9. They defeated Fall Creek Valley at FCV 2-0 in the morning’s quarterfinals. They advanced to the semifinals in the afternoon but fell to Eastwood to deny a championship game appearance. 8th grade lost on the road to a tough Lynhurst team on Wednesday, 9/13 while the 7th grade came away victorious.
East and West Boys and Girls Cross Country competed well at the annual Westland Round Up. Congratulations to the East Flashes for securing 3rd place overall in the boys and girls varsity races. Several Flashes from both East and West finished in the top 20 to earn individual honors. All results can be found here at this link http://onlineraceresults.com/event/view_event.php?event_id=19757
FTMS Football 8 “A” earned a solid road win this past Wednesday, 9/13 at Southport, 20-8. The team will be in action next week at Perry Meridian and will host Greenfield Central on 9/21.
FTMS Football 7 “A” lost a home contest to Southport, 6-32. The team looks to rebound next week when they host A and B contests vs. Perry Meridian.
