I hope you are all enjoying a restful and fun summer.  I wanted to check in as we are one month away from the opening of the new school year.  Time to get out and purchase the new notebooks, pencils and backpacks!

Some pertinent dates/information:

  • FHS parking- There is limited student parking and student spaces were assigned in the lottery last spring. Students who did not receive a parking space will need to  arrange for transportation , sign up for Pay to Ride or may purchase a Shuttle Bus Pass (reduced fee).

Other Town Information:
If you interested in going green, the Town of Franklin is seeking families to be part of the Solar Challenge. Using solar panels lowers your carbon footprint and can save energy costs. 
The Franklin Department of Planning and Community Development is hosting a meeting on August 20 at 7:00 pm at Town Hall to look at how to engage the community to invest in solar energy. By group purchasing community the cost can be lower. 
The Parmenter School has had solar panels for several years and  the energy savings has been tremendously impactful. We hope that our other schools will look to be a partner in this initiative.
