The Franklin High School Scholastic Bowl Team won the MSM Conference Tournament for the second year in a row. This particular team (not all players from the original team are pictured) has worked hard and they have been the MSM Conference Champions for 3 out of the last 4 years. This is a remarkable achievement that shows dedication and skill on the part of each and every player involved. We are so incredibly proud of the academic grit and talent these students have shown over time.

They are competing at the state level of Poetry Out Loud to try to move on to the national level. There are monetary awards for the state champion and their school as well as significant monetary awards for those who place in the top 12 at the National Poetry Out Loud Competition.

Good afternoon Franklin. Due to the winter storm that hit Texas, natural gas supplies have been interrupted. With the shortage of natural gas comes the dramatic increase in prices and supply issues to smaller areas. After talking with the Village of Franklin, all district schools will be in remote-learning for the remainder of the week. Our heating systems have been turned down to reduce gas consumption. It is our hope that we can resume in-person instruction next week. All events at Franklin have been cancelled through Sunday February 21st. We will keep you informed as soon as we have any updates. Thank you for your continued support through these trying times. Jeff Waggener Assistant Superintendent Principal 6-12
Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all staying warm! I wanted to let you all know that we are rescheduling the Orland Park dental program for tomorrow, February 17th.

I will be at East Grade tomorrow so please feel free to stop by and get your charger from 8:30-4:00. If your child is in 3/4/5th grades, you can stop by the high school, Mr. Waggener will be there. Please call the school if you have any questions. 675-2395 Thanks, Mrs. Willman
