A Message from the Principal

We are excited to welcome you back to school! As we go through the month of August, our team is working tirelessly to have our school ready for all our students and staff.

Sabers, I look forward to learning with you this year as we continue to make Franklin High School a better place to learn and part of a better community. We have the chance to do this by preparing to be engaged, respectful, and responsible every moment of every day. As we welcome the class of 2026 to Franklin High School, I thought about the message shared with our graduating class of 2022. Possibilities exist in every moment you will have. Remember, you change the world in small ways, in moments that may seem ordinary, through your everyday actions. You change the world every time you help one other person, make someone else’s day better, or engage in service to someone or something else. You change the world every day you get a little better than you were the day before. So Sabers, let’s change the world!

I cannot wait to see all of you as we approach each day with pride and purpose so that we can maximize the moments we have.

With Saber Pride,

Mr. Vuolo
