Principal's Welcome

Dear Golden Falcon Families,

Welcome to another great year at Franklin Heights High School.  I hope that everyone enjoyed their summer.  We are glad to have our students return for this upcoming school year.  I am extremely excited about what our students can accomplish.  

We will also welcome more new staff members to Franklin Heights.   They replace many veterans who have retired or relocated.  It is very exciting to welcome the new staff to our school, and to learn from their ideas and enjoy their energy.

Everyone is excited about the opening of our new building.  While the art wing will still be under construction, we will open our doors to students and staff on the first day of school - August 31, 2015.    We will still need your patience in working through the process of opening a new school.

I have a very simple approach to work and life which you will hear from me quite often as I will expect this out of staff and students.  Be Nice - Work Hard - Have Fun.  I firmly believe if you operate under these principles, you will be successful in life.  

This school year will be one of setting and reaching goals to achieve our next level of greatness at Franklin Heights. We are dedicated to a program of academic and civic excellence through a rigorous curriculum and high social expectations.

Our staff members are here to support our students to help them reach their full potential. We look forward to working with all of our families to provide the high-quality education our students deserve.

Parent involvement is key to student success. I hope to meet many of you at the various events we have planned for the school day, in addition to Open House.

Our goal is to ensure that our students become critical-thinkers, active problem-solvers, inquisitive readers, prolific writers and productive citizens to meet the demands of the real world.  

I look forward to working with you and helping our students reach New Heights! Be Nice - Work Hard - Have Fun.  Go Falcons!
