Dear Franklin Jr. High Families,

It is time to begin planning for next year. The FJPO would like to thank all the volunteers who diligently work to make our school so successful. One of the core aspects of our school is parental involvement. This involvement allows teachers to focus on teaching while providing meaningful events and social activities to enrich our students' junior high experience.

Orientation is online this year and required for all Franklin families. To complete online orientation, log-on to https://franklinjunior.com. This website was created to make orientation more efficient for families. Families completing online orientation by July 26, 2019 will receive their student class schedules via email on August 1. Bus schedules will also be distributed via email as soon as we receive this year’s routes.

Visit https://franklinjunior.com to complete the orientation process which will include:

1.       Sign up for required committees

2.       Pay Family Donations of $25

3.       Purchase PE Uniforms (optional - see below)

4.       Purchase composition books (optional – see below)

Committee Requirements

As mentioned above, parental involvement is important at Franklin Jr. High. Parents are REQUIRED to sign-up and volunteer for one committee. Volunteering on a committee will only require a few hours of your time for the entire year. If you would like to opt-out of a committee for an additional $25 this needs to be indicated in the online sign-up. Online committee sign-up will be available until July 26, 2019; however, signing up now will ensure that you get on the committee that best fits your needs and interests.

PE Uniforms

All students are required to wear plain black shorts that go to the knee and a plain red t-shirt (no logos) for PE. Your child is welcome to wear shorts and a t-shirt they already have. We offer the option to buy a PE uniform with the Franklin logo as a convenience to you for $25. If you order a uniform during orientation, they will be sized during PE and delivered to your student at school in early September. Sample PE uniforms will be available to view in the office.

Composition Books

Students are required to have quad-ruled composition books for math and science. We offer a set of quad-ruled composition books for $6. (A set includes four books) Purchasing composition books through Franklin is optional, or you are welcome to purchase quad-ruled books on your own. If you pre-order a set of books, they will be distributed to your student’s homeroom.

Thank you for all your support and we look forward to a successful 2019-2020 school year.

Sincerely,

Franklin Junior High Parent Organization
