We had an awesome all school assembly on this past Wednesday. The Maine East marching band came to Franklin to celebrate how well our students are doing at following our school wide behavioral expectations and to kick off our school year. Our school wide focus for the month of September will be “Ready to Learn.” Our first bell rings at 8:45 a.m. Students should be in their classrooms and ready to learn at 8:50 a.m. Mrs. Schuetz, Mrs. Majeski, and Mr. Rasmussen’s class won the “Golden Guitars” for earning the most golden Franklin Rocks slips for exhibiting excellent hallway behavior during August.

Safety Week will begin the week of Sept. 12th. Franklin students and staff will participate in state required safety drills: bus evacuation drill, fire drill, tornado drill, and lockdown drill. The state requires that all schools participate in safety drills to ensure all staff and students know what to do in the event of an emergency.
Picture Day will be Sept. 15th.
