Pantherbook: "A Moment of Silence for Parkland" - Mar 14

Alyssa Carolan, Editor of Pantherbook, writes about "A Moment of Silence for Parkland" being scheduled for March 14.

"On the afternoon of February 14th, 2018, a mass shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. 17 were killed and 14 more were injured, being taken to hospitals, causing this to replace the 1999 events at Columbine High School as the deadliest high school shooting in America. Nikolas Cruz, a 19 year old who had been expelled from the Parkland high school, was the one to open fire. 
This is not the first school shooting that occurred in 2018, making this incident harrowing, in terms of circumstance and statistic. Schools should be a place of safety, which makes instances like these so terrifying. 
In order to practice safety and preparation, Franklin High School will have a lockdown drill next week. The drills FHS practice are a blend of lockdown in place drills and active live shooter drills. In a lockdown drill, measures taken include: turning the lights off, locking the door, sitting in a corner away from the windows, and seeing an exit, and taking it immediately. In an active live shooter drill, measures taken include: barricading the door, seeing an exit and taking it immediately, and fighting back, throwing, trying to be as much of a disruption as possible. 
“We are always examining our drills and our safety,” Mr. Peri stated."

Knock off early!
On Friday, March 21st, we're quitting work early and hope you can too. Please come by to enjoy some basketball, have a drink, make a (re)connection... or all of the above! We're going to have fun and support the Franklin Food Pantry, because it's madness that donations should be so slow this time of year. Most needed item? Shaving supplies. Who knew? 
Home court: Murphy Business
Tip-off: 4:00pm
Ticket price: Can(s) of shaving cream
It's a steal, a lay-up... no, a slam dunk!
Let us know if you can join the fun and games.
