FHS: Awards Night, Senior Parade, Commencement Broadcast Schedule

Dear Class of 2020, families, and friends-

Thank you to all students and families who participated in today's Day 1 diploma distribution.  The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, families and students were excellent at adhering to all safety guidelines, and we are looking forward to even more smiles, cheers, and celebrations in the coming week!

We are excited to share additional details for this week's upcoming events. 

Thursday, June 4th - Awards Night: 5:30 PM
Our annual Awards Ceremony is scheduled to broadcast at 5:30 on Thursday night on both Access and Educational channels.

If you have Comcast, then the Access channel is Channel 8, and the Educational Channel is 96. For Verizon, the Access Channel is 26, and Educational is 28.  It will also be live-streamed on Franklin Panther TV's YouTube channel.

Please tune in to see over $150,000 in scholarships awarded to some incredibly deserving graduates!

Friday, June 5th - Graduation Parade:
On Friday afternoon, graduates are invited to participate in the 1st ever, townwide graduation parade! Under police escort, graduates will parade through town from each of their respective middle schools, and drive towards FHS.  At FHS, graduates will be greeted by Franklin Public Schools' faculty and staff. Franklin Police ask that graduates have a family member drive so they can fully enjoy the parade.

Each graduate will report to their middle school between 1:30 and 2:10 PM on Friday, June 5th.  FPS staff will assist in lining up vehicles at the middle schools.  The parades will depart each school on a staggered schedule to keep events moving on time:
  • Depart from HMMS - 2:00 PM  (1:30 arrival at HMMS)
  • Depart from ASMS - 2:20 PM  (1:50 arrival at ASMS)
  • Depart from RMS - 2:40 PM (2:10 arrival at RMS)
BFCCS*  students are welcome to parade with RMS if there is a meet up at the new charter school, OR, they can parade from any of the three middle schools.  Students who did not attend an FPS middle school are welcome to join a parade of their choosing. 

Each parade route is different; however, all three routes will circle the Town Common and then head down Oak Street towards FHS. (See below). We anticipate the parade taking approximately 90 minutes, with the three parades eventually forming into one parade as they approach FHS.

We hope to see the entire town out along the parade routes supporting this amazing group of Seniors! The Town Common and Senior center will be ideal for viewing locations. 

Graduates are encouraged to decorate their vehicles and wear their caps and gowns.  Maps of each route are attached below.  Please follow all town parking regulations and please follow all social distancing guidelines during this event.  

Any graduate who has concerns about securing a vehicle for this special event should complete this google form no later Tuesday, 6/2.

Friday, June 5th - Commencement Broadcast 6 PM
The student procession will be airing at 6 PM Friday on both our Access and Educational channels.  FranklinTV will be broadcasting the car parade live on Franklin Radio, which you can find at 102.9 FM.  It will also be streamed on the High School's YouTube page at the same time on Friday!

If you have Comcast, then the Access channel is Channel 8 and the Educational Channel is 96. For Verizon, the Access Channel is 26 and Educational is 28.

We look forward to seeing you on Friday afternoon!
Thank you.

Receiving Silver medals were the Horace Mann Middle School Band, the combined middle schools Orchestra and Chorus, the Franklin High School Chorus, Symphony Orchestra and Wind Ensemble.

Three Franklin Ensembles brought home Gold medals this year from the regional three-day festival; the Annie Sullivan Band (Pamela Butz, director), the Franklin High School Repertory Orchestra (Diane Plouffe, director) and Treble Choir (Olivia Goliger, director).

The Franklin Repertory Orchestra is an audition-based group comprised of 22 students from grades 9 to 12. The Repertory Orchestra is part of Franklin Public Schools Lifelong Music Academy directed by Sheila Darcey.

Ensembles receiving a Gold medal are invited to perform in the state’s “Gold Medal Showcase” at either Mechanics Hall in Worcester or at Symphony Hall in Boston.
