~~To FTCSC Parents and Community Members:

Due to failing equipment, the Franklin Township voicemail system has become unreliable.  We are taking corrective action to replace the equipment; however, this will take several months to coordinate and complete.

If you attempt to leave a message for any teacher or other staff member and you do not get a response, please email that person with your concern.

Your communication is very valuable to us.  If you do not receive a timely response, please contact your school’s office.

Attention 8th grade students & parents: The 8th Grade Celebration is scheduled for the evening of Thursday, May 21st. This celebration is for 8th graders only and is free to attend. This year we will be having a Comic Con theme, with an evening of superhero and pop culture fun. We encourage everyone to come dressed as their favorite character. This includes, superhero, villain, video game characters, comic book characters, movies, and other pop culture references. There will be lots of fun activities, including a photo booth and photo ops with characters, a live DJ, games, a yearbook signing table, and costume contest. Please keep dress code in mind when planning your costume. For example, clothing and costumes with offensive wording are not permitted. Dresses may be worn, but shirts and leggings must be worn under costumes that would be considered too short or too revealing. When in doubt, ask if a costume is appropriate. If you would like to attend, there will be a sign up sheet posted in the cafeteria during lunch on Tuesday and will be there through the end of the week. When signing up, please indicate your choice for type of pizza and beverage. If you intend to be there, please make sure you sign up by Friday so we can make sure we have an accurate food and beverage count. Thank you!
