Students (& Staff) Love Spirit Week
Monday: PJ Day
Tuesday: Twin Day
Wednesday: Neon Day
Thursday: Throwback Day
Friday: Spirit Day
It's important for us, even during this type of week, to continue to stress academics. In some cases this could be difficult. We were very proud of the way our students approached the week. It was a way for staff and students to bond together with simple theme days. Knowing that our students can handle the fun along with the academics will help as we plan more days later on in the year.
I've included some pictures below. If you'd like to see more pictures please go to our Facebook page.
Mission of Hope
Part of the Franklin 8th grade year is to concentrate on giving back to the community. One way we give back is to prepare and serve lunch to the homeless at the Mission of Hope. On Wednesday, November 4th, we had four adult volunteers and 25 students go to the Mission and serve lunch. The students brought along canned goods, and travel size shampoos to give to the Mission. Three of the girls worked in the Clothing section to help straighten the clothing. Some washed dishes, others served. I watched as students helped an elderly lady with a walker maneuver with her tray to eat. Others with young children were assisted by our students. What a great learning opportunity for our students.
Important Note: Please plan to arrive early to ensure a parking spot and to catch the start of the concert. If the weather cooperates we will open up the grass area located near the north parking lot.
