Before & After School
A friendly reminder...
While the weather is nice students are expected to wait outside the building before school. With these colder temperatures students have been waiting inside prior to the morning bell ringing. Regardless of location students are to conduct themselves in an orderly manner by keeping their hands and feet to themselves, as well as not chasing one another around. After school it is expected that students leave the building and begin their way home by bike or on foot. All rides should be here to pick you up within 15 minutes of dismissal time. The only students that should be in the building are those working with teachers at after school activities or those working in the homework center. Students are not to be walking the halls and will be asked to leave if not with a teacher or coach.

Thunderbolt Band Joins Forces @ Roughriders
On Friday, February 6, 110 Franklin band students joined forces with 40 McKinley band students to provide a giant pep band for the Cedar Rapids Roughriders hockey game. Although the team lost, the students had a fantastic time, and the fans were excited to have live music supporting their team. A portion of the ticket sales from Friday's game will be donated to the Franklin & McKinley band program in appreciation of the bands performance. Thanks to all of the Franklin parents that helped chaperone this event.
