The 2015-16 school year is a week away. The construction crews have moved on and the building will be in top-notch shape for our students when they enter the doors on Monday. On Thursday, August 20 from 3:30-7:30 we will open the building to our families for our annual Back to School Night. Use this newsletter to help answer questions for the beginning of school as well as the events for the evening. We understand Thursday is a busy night around our district, but we look forward to seeing as many of our families as possible even for a brief amount of time.

Lifetouch Pictures

One part of Back to School Night is Lifetouch taking student pictures. All students will have their picture taken regardless of whether they purchase a packet. The picture will be used for the student ID, which students will receive immediately that evening.

Follow the link for the flyer where you can purchase picture packets: http://franklin.cr.k12.ia.us/assets/23/6/Lifetouch_Flyer_2015.pdf

Student Schedules

Students will receive their schedules Thursday night when they arrive to Back to School Night. Please be patient as we continue to work through building our schedules. With our late staffing we were delayed building our master and student schedules. Student schedules are not set in stone as we'll see changes during the first few days of the new school year. Students that do not attend Back to School Night will receive their schedules when they arrive on the first day of school.
