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.

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.

Over the weekend, our Key Club students installed five Little Free Libraries around the township! They are located at the following places: --Southeastway Park, by the playground (decorated by Kitley's YMCA) --Thompson Park (decorated by Thompson Crossing's art club) --Amber Ridge housing addition, at the corner of Amber Valley Lane and Graybrook Drive (decorated by Bunker HIll's student council) --Moeller Estates housing addition, right outside of the pool/clubhouse, (decorated by Arlington's art club and student council) --Flashes Park, by the picnic tables, (decorated by Adams' art club) The Little Free Library initiative is a move to help promote literacy throughout the township. We received a grant from the Moorehead Foundation, FTEF, and United Way to help fund the project. The libraries are a take-a-book-leave-a-book structure that residents can use throughout the year. Our hope is to expand this next year to include South Creek and Acton. I have attached several pictures of the libraries, including a celebration party that we did with Arlington's student council. Our Key Club members had a book-theme party with them--it included Dr. Seuss Bingo, a bookmark making station, and an area where students could write a collective story. All participants had a great time! We are so proud of our Key Club members and our partnership with our elementary schools!

Last night the Boys Track and Field team went to Whiteland looking for our first Sectional Championship since 2002. For the past 13 years, the Warren Central Warriors had the Flashes number. But it was another Warriors team (Whiteland) who would get the victory. The Flashes finished 2nd by 6 1/2 points. Even though we didn't win a team title there were many great performances, and many athletes moving on to the Regional meet next Thursday at Franklin Community. Sectional Champions 100 M Dash - Andrew DeRidder (10.76) - New School Record 200 M Dash - Andrew DeRidder (21.97) 300 M Hurdles - Malachi Quarles (41.09) - Currently the fastest time in the State for a Freshman 3200 M Run - Robby Lawson (9:45.90) - New PR High Jump - Blake Settles (6'5") 4x100 M Relay - Kain Idele, Robert Ritter, Travon Padgett, Andrew DeRidder (42.40) Other individuals auto advancing to Regionals (must finish top 3) 110 M Hurdles - 2nd place - Raekwon Wilkins (14.54) - 5th All Time in School History and he hit the State Standard 300 M Hurdles - 2nd place - Raekwon Wilkins (41.55) Discus - 2nd place - Kendal Kendrick (157' 5") 1600 M Run - Michael Parrish (4:36.01) There is a call back system, where the 4 fastest non-auto qualifiers from all the Sectionals that feed into the Franklin Community Regional will get to go as well. The 4x400 M Relay team and 4x800 M Relay team both will receive a call back it looks like. Still waiting to hear on individuals. We are so proud of our Track Team! Go FC!

Last night the Boys Track and Field team competed at the prestigious Marion County Meet, which is viewed by most as the 2nd best meet of the year, only behind the IHSAA State Meet. The meet is currently incomplete due to the storms that rolled through yesterday evening. We will be taking the 4x400 M Relay team of Christian Reynolds, Lorenzo Bragonzi, Kyle McCann, and Raekwon Wilkins back to North Central tonight to run the only remaining race at 5:30 PM. Here are some notable performances from last night: - Andrew DeRidder was the Marion County Champion in the 100 M Dash (10.83) and the 200 M Dash (22.10). This is the first time in school history that FC has won the 100 M Dash or the 200 M Dash at the County meet, let alone winning both in the same year. - The 4x100 M Relay team of Kain Idele, Robert Ritter, Travon Padgett, and Andrew DeRidder finished 2nd but again lowered their school record time to 41.96 - Kendal Kendrick finished 3rd in the Discus throwing 152' 4" which solidifies his spot as 5th All-Time in school history as he gradually creeps up on his dad's school record. - Robby Lawson finished in the top 8 running a solid 9:54 in the 3200 M Run. This marks his 2nd time breaking 10 minutes this season. The Sectional meet is next Thursday night at Whiteland High School! We are so proud of our Flashes! Congratulations!
