FHS Construction II Students Build a Home in Franklin
Our Construction II Class students, led by Mr. Andrew Mente, helped to build this home in Ryanwood Manor in Franklin. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was on Saturday. Students shared stories about the skills they learned with framing the house, working on the plumbing, and wiring for electricity. Thank you to Tim O'Brien Homes for this great partnership! This is the full story that ran on their 9p and 10p news on Saturday night.

Affordable Mental Health Resources
We know that prioritizing mental health can be difficult. Made even more difficult by busy schedules, lack of accessibility, and affordability. There are small steps we can all take each day to improve our mental health and general well-being. These include getting exercise, eating nutritious foods, getting adequate amounts of sleep, and doing things that we enjoy each day.
Accessibility and affordability should never stand in the way of you getting the support you need to be the best version of yourself! Visit the website below for free online mental health resources and ideas on improving well-being.

Review Bus Procedures for This Year
Prior to these restrictions, the FHS procedure was that a student cannot ride another bus without a note from both parents and prior administrative approval. Once the COVID-19 restrictions are removed, this procedure will continue for FHS.
