The track and field were opened temporarily for the FHS football on Friday night.
How much less will the cost be due to the $1,000/day penalty the contractor is being assessed?

FHS field hockey falls to Walpole 3-0

From Hockomock Sports we share the results of the Franklin High School field hockey team results from Saturday, Sep 23.


Field Hockey = Franklin, 0 vs. Walpole, 3 – Final
– Franklin junior goalie Anna Jardine made a highlight-reel save with a beautiful slide tackle on a breakaway as one of her career-high 16 saves but the Panthers fell to state perennial power Walpole. FHS head coach Lisa Cropper noted sophomore Maeve Ledwith and junior Cassi Ronan also played well for Franklin.

The "Taste of the Region" is back! This exciting event enables a restaurant/food vendor to showcase their specialty to a large audience—free of any fee! I hope you will join us this year as I believe that this event will provide you and your business with many benefits both now and for the future.

Last year's event drew a record crowd of well over 500 attendees. Guests are primarily employees of the many companies and residents around our 16-town region.

This magnificent evening features creative and abundant samples from the wonderful restaurants around the area, enhanced by a beautiful setting, music and a great crowd. Load-in and set-up will be between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on the day of the event. Participants are encouraged to promote the event at their establishments!

  • White linens for a 6-foot table (tables will be provided).

There are approximately 25 FREE participant opportunities available at this time.

The TC Insider







September 22, 2017


To the Tri-County Community,

We are off on another school year adventure! It's like starting two school years here at TC an "A" school year and a "B" school year. Forty-two seniors got off to a quick start this week with Cooperative Education working full-time at a number of different local companies. Many other seniors are in the process of getting approved for Co-op as well. Our freshmen have survived one exploratory cycle last week and begin their academics in earnest this week. We welcomed Mr. Silva, our new Asst. Principal, to TC a couple of weeks ago. Mr. Silva has blended right in getting to know the students and teachers.

All of our fall athletic programs have begun their season including our new Girls Junior Varsity Soccer Team. We wish Coach Martin well in their first season. Our clubs and activities are getting underway with many students taking advantage of the opportunity to participate. Fall is always a very busy time at TC with the next two weeks bringing our freshmen-junior Parent Orientation this week and our sophomore-senior Parent Orientation next week. We will be holding our annual Showcase Spectacular this year on Saturday, November 4th.  The Showcase Spectacular is an event for all people in our communities to visit Tri-County and see all the great career-focused programs we have to offer. We hope to see you and your family there.

Lastly, the 2017-18 school year will be a New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) self-study year as we will have our decennial accreditation visit next school year. The NEASC self-study will take up most of our early release days. 
 
Thanks for your support,
Mr. Procaccini
