The Best Choice for Your Child
As we kick off the 2018-19 academic year for Franklin County Schools, I am excited for what the future holds. For our traditional calendar students, August 27th marks the start of a new year. In anticipation, I am sure that our families have been actively preparing for the big day- setting the alarm to rise earlier, purchasing last minute school supplies, and visiting open house to get ready for the big day.As a staff, we have been working towards the big day as well- cleaning buildings, waxing floors, preparing buses, and setting up classrooms. Many of our teachers have been engaged in professional learning to help strengthen classroom instruction and opportunities for our students. Our principals have been working with staff and parents to develop school improvement plans- blueprints for our work- for the upcoming year.Last week, our staff engaged in a "Back to School Celebration"- a pep rally of sorts, where we celebrated the start of the school year and set the tone for the important work that will take place in support of our students. We are focused on relationships and on continuing to raise the bar for instruction. As a parent in Franklin County Schools and as superintendent, it was inspiring to see the smiles and enthusiasm of our staff.We appreciate the confidence that you entrust in us to educate your children. Let's make the 2018-19 school year the best ever!
