We are giving official notification that the last day of school for students will be on Wednesday, May 25.  There was an extra day added to the calendar this year in case a snow day was needed.  This day will also be a regular schedule and not an early dismissal. 

This information was printed at the bottom of the 2015 - 16 school calendar.

Parents of current 5th grade students:

Immunizations of meningitis and Tdap are needed for the start of 6th grade.  Please call the doctor now to schedule an appointment prior to the start of school so that your student will have the shots that Indiana requires for middle school.  When you have an appointment date and time, please let the elementary school nurse know so that it can be recorded. Requirements are grade level-based, and not dependent on age of students entering 6th grade.  Call now for the best availability of appointments.

Parents of current high school juniors:

Two doses of meningitis are needed for the start of 12th grade.  Please call your student’s doctor now to schedule an appointment prior to the start of school so that your student will have complete shots as designated by the state of Indiana.  Please call the nurse at 803-8304 to advise her about the date and time of appointment.  Students are expected to have the shots at the beginning of the school year.  Call now for best availability of appointments.

Please follow the links to the immunization charts:

It is amazing what can be found when spending some time on Google.  Most recently we discovered that the official holiday for New Year’s Day in 2017 will be on January 2!  The approved calendar for the 16-17 school year indicated that students in Franklin Township would be returning to school on that day after the winter break.  This new information has caused a shift of days in the calendar.

The link to the calendar shown below will take you to the new version of the calendar with the corrections.  The modification is that students WILL attend school on Friday, December 16.  The teacher work day has been moved to Monday, December 19, 2016.  With this change, students and staff will return to school on Tuesday, January 3, 2017.

Not only is Indiana celebrating 200 years, but Hoosier Girls State is celebrating its 75th anniversary! Franklin Central High School Seniors Alexa Carr, Addison Laker, and Katie Timperman served as delegates to Hoosier Girls State in June at Trine University sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. The lady leaders learned the political process, patriotism, and campaigned for elected positions. Alexa was a Nationalist city chairwoman; Addison was elected Mayor of Gunning City, Deputy Clerk,and participated in the Hoosier Girls State Choir; and Katie was elected City Councilwoman and participated in the Nationalist City Platform. The delegates were nominated by the Social Studies Department, submitted essay applications, and interviewed before a panel of Social Studies teachers in order to be considered to represent Franklin Central under the direction of Mrs. Laura Miller. "Hoosier Girls State is a program designed to educate young women of Indiana in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of citizenship. It is a week of living and learning the political system of Indiana through a mythical City, County and State." Alexa, Addison, and Katie would like to thank the American Legion Auxiliary and District Coordinator Ms. Phyllis Clark for sponsoring them during this incredible week of democracy in action! "Raise your voices, raise them high, Sing to Girls State, and here’s why… Look to Girls State and you’ll find Tomorrow’s leaders of mankind."
