National Honor Society and High School Honors Banquet has been moved to May 23rd starting at 6:30 pm. Supply chain issues have slowed down the ability to get the awards, so more time has been taken. The Franklin Lions Club will be providing the chicken and condiments. Please bring a dish to share. 8th Grade honors night has been moved to May 24th. The program will begin at 7pm with a dessert social immediately following.
Today we began what we hope to be a long time commitment to our students….our Elementary and Fitness World in Jacksonville have joined together to provide swimming lessons for all of our 3rd grade students! Thanks to everyone who helped make this work. We pulled this together in just a few days but it was worth it! It is my hope to have every 3rd grade student learn to swim and receive life saving skills that they can use if they are ever in a situation where they need to use them. Thanks Ryne Turke and everyone at Fitness World for being so great to work with. 🏊♂️🧡🖤🏊♀️
