ANNOUNCEMENTS

Carnival Day
Carnival Day is a school spirit day where students participate in activities on the Parade Grounds to earn points for their team during Spirit Week. Carnival Day will be Wednesday, 9/24. The school building opens at 8AM. Students will be marked late after 9AM and must be in their advisory by 9:15. Students will be dismissed at the conclusion of the carnival at approximately 2PM. In the event of inclement weather, Carnival Day will be moved to Thursday, 9/25.

NEW INFORMATION REGARDING TRANSPASSES! (8/26/2014)
As an update to recent information sent home to families in the school newsletter, we have confirmed that the SRC and School District of Philadelphia has reversed the recent change to eligibility for Transpasses.  The policy will remain that Transpasses will be issued to students who live farther than 1.5 miles from the school.  As any further developments emerge, Franklin Towne will continue to make every effort to keep families informed in the timeliest way possible so we can all best support students.

ATTENTION SENIOR PARENTS

As part of this year’s graduation requirements, all seniors must successfully complete the Senior Thesis Paper which requires them to independently select a topic, conduct research and write a paper about a current issue.   Some students have selected topics that, while not inherently inappropriate, may result in their exposure to content that, as a parent, you may not find permissible.  Please discuss with your child the topic they have selected and if you find that they have selected one that you do not approve of assist them to choose one you deem appropriate.  Please feel free to contact the English Department Chair, Jennifer Craig at jcraig@ftchs.org, with any questions.
