While students are enjoying their summer break, the work has not stopped at
Franklin Woods!
Our custodians are very busy cleaning and getting the entire building prepared for the new school year.
They clean every desk, chair and piece of furniture.
Here's a few pictures of part of a hallway with furniture moved out so the classrooms can be cleaned from top to bottom.

Speakers included Alex Caplinger (a Bulldog alum) who spoke about her Journey to College.
She was very inspiring and concluded with three main points: 
Be proud of where you came from; Never be afraid to ask for help; Enjoy the ride.

Approximately thirty students (from Honor Society, sports and different clubs) from Franklin Heights explained the various opportunities offered at the high school level and about being Falcon Strong!  Their principal, Mr. Jados, spoke about the new high school scheduled to open in the Fall of 2015.  Our families then broke into three groups with the high school students to participate in some fun team-building activities which included learning about The Falcon Way, career readiness and college life.
