Franklin Middle School - October 20th, 2014
Parents of Seventh Graders:
This letter (click here) is on the back of the mid-term grade report. If you have not seen this please read and respond only if you do not want your child to participate.
Cooler Weather on the Horizon: A reminder to students, as the weather gets cooler you will want to make sure you are prepared to wait outside. Warmer clothes would include hats and gloves. As you enter the building remember to remove your hats and hoods so you do not have to be reminded by a staff member. We want to make sure you are doing your PARRT and following the Franklin Building Expectations.

Telephone Usage Just a reminder to students and staff members, the main office is a very hectic place immediately after school. If a student needs to use a phone to contact a parent, phones are available to use in all teacher's classrooms. Students may ask a teacher to use a phone if needed. The main office phone should be your last resort.
