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 also welcome more new staff members to Franklin Heights. Kyle Gibson joins us as our new Assistant Principal/Athletic Director. Mr. Gibson has a passion for students and athletics and we are very excited to have him join our team. Kevin Tooson will also be joining our administrative team this school year. Mr. Tooson is excited to join our staff and make a difference for our students. In addition, we have several a few new teachers joining our team this school year. It is very exciting to welcome the new staff to our school, and to learn from their ideas and enjoy their energy.

As many of our returning families know, 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 to achieve our vision of success:

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

I look forward to working with you and helping our students reach New Heights!
