ANNOUNCEMENTS

Towne Connections

To our Franklin Towne families:

Our students, staff and Board of Directors have raised funds to support the Towne Connections Program. Connections provide meals and necessities to struggling Towne families. The stagnant economy has intensified the troubles: job loss, death of a family member or poor health of so many of our Towne families making it especially difficult to provide meals and presents to their children during the holiday season.

We are welcoming letters from our Towne families who are facing particularly tough times and would be grateful for a food basket or help with holiday gifts. So if you or if you know of a Towne family who would benefit from our help, please write a note explaining why the help is needed and how we can help your family. If you are writing for another Towne family, please include why the help is needed, how we can help and the recipient's name and address. Remember Towne Connections is limited to Towne Families only. 

Letters requesting our help or contributions can be dropped off to the front office, mailed to the school c/o Towne Connections, Franklin Towne Charter High School, 5301 Tacony Street, Box 310, Philadelphia, PA 19137 or emailed to jvenditti@ftchs.org.

Thank You,

Joseph Venditti

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.
