On this day

You can check out Wikipedia to find out what happened on this day in history.

Digging into the archives, the posting here a year ago reported on vandalism, car thieves, and the Digital Credit Union expanding by opening their office on RT 140.

In 2007, Oak St Elementary School received word that it's kindergarten had been certified by the NAEYC and the Boston Globe wrote about the short cut utility poles. I had just before that posted pictures of those poles that could be seen along Union St.

Thanks for stopping by to visit Franklin Matters. If there happens to be nothing new on the front page, please feel free to dig into the archives. You might find something of interest that you had previously missed.

Accreditation - more kindergartens earn the mark!


John F. Kennedy and the F.X. O’Regan Early Childhood Development Center are one of the first early childhood programs to earn accreditation from the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the nation’s leading organization of early childhood professionals.

"We’re proud to have earned the mark of quality from NAEYC, and to be recognized for our commitment to reaching the highest professional standards," said principals Joan Toye and Karen Seyfried. "NAEYC Accreditation lets families in our community know that children in our program are getting the best care and early learning experiences possible."

I recall that Oak St Elementary School's kindergarten actually achieved this NAEYC certification first in the new process. Check out the announcement from last year and here.

I think it is more impressive that many of the Franklin schools have accreditation than which one was first.
