Panther Pride night at FHS coming up
Posted by Jeffrey Roy on October 10, 2009
In a few days, parents of 8th grade students will receive a formal invitation in the mail to attend this year’s Panther Pride Night at Franklin High School on Wednesday, October 21, 2009. This is going to be an informative and exciting opportunity for parents and students to explore the scope and quality of the engaging educational and extracurricular programs and facilities that FHS offers to students. All 8th grade parents and students are invited to attend this informative event that will include multimedia presentations, walking tours, information about our graduates. The evening will also highlight the opportunities for learning, sports, clubs, and activities.
Join the FHS team on Oct. 21st in the Field House where Principal Peter Light will kick-off the evening’s activities, followed by an informational video about the opportunities and experiences that are available to incoming freshmen. After the video, parents and students will be escorted in small groups through the high school where they will have the opportunity to obtain more information about our academic programs and facilities, explore the newly organized Technology Center, sample the new Fitness Center, and view classroom resources at various stops throughout the school. A visit to the Art Gallery and DECA Store are also on the planned tour route. In addition, faculty, administrators, and students will be available in the Field House to provide more information and to answer any questions that you may have about the FHS community.
To allow sufficient time for all parents and students to participate in the Panther Pride experience, there will be two sessions offered based on a student’s last name. The first session will start at 5:30pm (for students with last names beginning with the letters A-K), and the second session will begin at 6:30pm (for students with last names L-Z). If you are an 8th grade parent or student, this year’s Panther Pride night is an event that is not to be missed. So mark your calendar now for Wednesday, October 21st.
