NATIONAL BLUE RIBBON AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE

 

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private elementary, middle, and high schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Every year the U. S. Department of Education seeks out and celebrates great American schools, schools demonstrating that all students can achieve to high levels. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. The National Blue Ribbon School award is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.

Possible SEPTA Strike

It has been reported that SEPTA may possibly go on strike Monday, Oct 27th.  Should this occur, Franklin Towne will open on a 2 hr delay in order for students to get to school.  Families should formulate plans in anticipation of this possibility.  As such, students would be expected to enter and swipe in by 9:45.  Seniors who do not have remediation would report by 10:45.  The delay will only take place if SEPTA does strike and will be in place for Monday only.

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.
