TOWNE INDEPENDENT READING PROGRAM

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.
