All service hours performed during Q2 have been applied to the volunteer's Raptor account in real time and will be updated in the Guardian PowerSchool account this month. Families will be notified of the update to their account.

Character Trait - Fairness

Elementary students playing by the rules, taking turns, and sharing with others while being open-minded and listening to others are considered to be displaying the character trait of the month, FAIRNESS. These students think of others, making sure not to take advantage of anyone.

NJAHS Induction Ceremony

The National Junior Art Honor Society (NJAHS) was established by the National Art Education Association (NAEA) in 1989 to inspire and recognize students who have demonstrated passion and dedication through their art and community service. Participation in the NJAHS provides students, faculty, school, and community with invaluable benefits—including peer recognition, leadership growth opportunities, college and career preparation, recognition of the art program, and so much more.

In alignment with the NJAHS Constitution, the Franklin Academy NJAHS Chapter identifies our own operating procedures, traditions, and service priorities which highlight the value of the arts as an integral part of our school’s curriculum.

All MYP students that applied for the National Junior Arts Honor Society will be inducted during our very special event ceremony on January 14, 2020 at 6 pm.
