September 21-27, 2014 is Banned Books Week. Banned Books Week is a celebration of your Freedom to Read. As a reader, it is your choice to read from a manners of genres, ideas and viewpoints. According to the American Library Association, “A challenge is an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group. A banning is the removal of those materials. Challenges do not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, they are an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others. As such, they are a threat to freedom of speech and choice.” (American Library Association) So stop by the FTMS East Media Center to celebrate your Freedom to Read!

The 6th and 7th grade Jam is tonight! We have sold over 300 tickets and expect to sell 100 more today. Below is the contents of an email we just sent out about tonight. Parents/Guardians: We are all set for our first Jam of the year. I wanted to send out a couple of pieces of information to make tonight a night to remember for all of our 6th and 7th graders. Drop-off: Students should be dropped off at door 25. Parents do not need to come in with their student, as parent and teacher chaperones will be there to greet students as they enter. THE EARLIEST A STUDENT WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE BUILDING IS 5:55 pm. Tickets: If students purchased tickets in advance we have their name on a master list. WE DID NOT ISSUE TICKETS. Those who have yet to purchase a ticket may get one at the door for $2 (cash or check). The Jam: We have a fun night planned! We will have a dodgeball tournament in the main gym (the winners get to play the teachers), basketball in the auxiliary gym, and music in the cafeteria. As you can see this is far from the dances we all remember. The concession stand will be open and we will have pizza and a full selection of candy and drinks for purchase. Supervision: We will have over 25 parent and teacher chaperones in the building to supervise our students. Pick-up: The jam will end promptly at 8:00. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE BUILDING TO PICK-UP YOUR CHILD. Chaperones will walk out of door 25 with students starting at 7:55. It is helpful to designate a spot in the parking lot for your child to look for you. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call. Thanks, Chase Huotari, Principal Franklin Township Middle School East 317-803-8100
