Senior Night Recognition

Wednesday, June 2nd is our night to recognize Senior honor students. Students previously did an RSVP to notify us if they would attend and who their two parent guests would be. To meet capacity limits, our event is at the Forest Park Middle School gym starting at 6:30pm. Students can start checking in after 6:00pm and will be seated alphabetically in chairs on the gym floor with parents in bleachers on either side.

The event will be live streamed on The Saber Roar Channel. www.youtube.com/c/thesaberroar

Traditionally we recognize students with a 3.5+ (unweighted) GPA, select scholarships and students of the year for each high school department. We look forward to recognizing our excellent Class of 2021 honored seniors.

Important School Account/Google Drive Info for Seniors

Congratulations Seniors! You are almost there. As you are approaching the end of your time at FHS we want to make sure you can take what you want from your School Google drive with you. Your school Google account will be turned off and disabled on June 15th.

Please use this handout and video to help you complete this task. Even if you do not think you want any of your documents/pictures/work, it is best to transfer your files to your personal google account so you have them for your post-secondary experiences if needed. All questions should be directed to the FHS Tech Depot.

FHS Yearbooks

Graduation Ticket Update

We are looking forward to our first graduation ceremony at American Family Field on Saturday, June 19th at 5pm with our students, staff, family, and friends. We have more information to share with you about how the ticket process will work for students and families.

If your graduate will not be attending the ceremony at American Family Field, please email Sue Bollis @ susan.bollis@franklin.k12.wi.us.

Every graduate will be randomly assigned (4) complementary tickets in sections closest to the field and graduates. Graduates with more than one household or households with more than one graduating student will only receive (4) complementary tickets. Please note, graduates will also be given their own ticket, as graduates will be seated alphabetically with their peers. The graduate’s ticket does not count as part of the (4) tickets a family receives.

We are excited to share that we will be selling additional graduation tickets next week, Tuesday, June 1 through Friday, June 4.

Purchased tickets will be randomly assigned together through the remainder of the American Family Field sections being used. Those purchased tickets will not be connected to your complementary four tickets. Ticket purchases are not refundable.

As with the Brewer games, people in wheelchairs are allowed to sit at the top of each deck with another person(s). If a guest is in a wheelchair, they enter with their assigned seating ticket but use the handicap area instead. The whole family does not sit in this area but one or two can sit with that person with the rest of their party sitting in their assigned seats.

Tickets will be sold in the high school main office to students for cash, cashier’s checks or charge. Each ticket beyond the (4) complementary tickets costs $6 each. When students purchase tickets with cash, please have them bring exact change. Tickets will be sold before school, during a student’s lunch, and after school.

All tickets, the (4) complementary and any additional paid, will be ready for pickup by your student during finals week (June 7-10) after exams are complete any given day. When students are given the tickets, the students will verify the number of tickets received.

Please encourage your Senior to finish strong. Participation in this ceremony is contingent upon completion of all graduation requirements, as well as meeting all obligations. These obligations include fees, detentions, disciplinary consequences, and fully completing the checkout process.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this process and make it a great weekend.

Your student can pick up signs ordered any day after school.

Flowers for Commencement

At our last in person graduation we had a company, The Commencement Group, offer pre sales of flowers for graduates. They are returning for the Class of 2021. You can conveniently pick up your order at their tent in the parking lot near the entrance of American Family Field either before or after the ceremony.

From the Commencement Group:

Use this link to take a look at our selection. All online orders will be available for pickup on site the day of the graduation. To retrieve your order, stop at the booth located conveniently in the parking lot near the entrance to the graduation before the ceremony begins.

2021-2022 FHS Scheduling Update

Current 8th-11th grade students' lists of scheduled courses for the 2021-2022 school year were sent via email to families last week. FHS students also viewed the video here. Please make sure to check your email for this message and review your list carefully.

The message contains links for required summer homework for some AP and honors courses, a list of courses not running, and information about our course change request policy.

Any course change request must be made by submitting the completed pink course change request paper form (available in Student Services) with signatures to Student Services by Friday, June 4 at 3 p.m. Late requests will not be accepted and schedule changes will not be made over summer or when students return in fall. Note that change requests are not guaranteed due to space availability and course options.

Final FHS student schedules with class periods, teachers, rooms, etc. will likely be released on PowerSchool in late August.
