We, the administration, faculty, and staff at Franklinton High School, are committed to creating an educational environment conducive to maximizing academic, social, and workplace skills necessary to meet the needs of the 21st century learner.
We envision a school in which educators, parents, and the community work cooperatively to engage all students in rigorous and relevant educational experiences while fostering positive relationships among all stakeholders.
Stemventure is put on by the student body at Franklinton High School and will travel to more elementary schools throughout the 2023-2024 school year. Students and staff from Mu Alpha Theta, Math Club, Quill & Scroll, and the News Crew recently visited Long Mill Elementary. Each club was tasked with its own station where students were able to share a passion of theirs with someone younger, encouraging them to pursue their passions for STEM and art.
These grants of support for educational creativity are set to enhance classroom experiences across various disciplines in our schools.
Officer Seth Woods of the Youngsville Police Department joined us last week to help some of our Community Engagement Team students pack up Thanksgiving meal boxes for area families. Each Thanksgiving meal box was stocked by FHS & YPD food drives. Turkeys, all the fixings, desserts, and other treats were provided to the families. We continue to appreciate the work of all our local law enforcement officers and our partnership with Youngsville PD on several projects this year. Community matters!
Officer Cyrankowski from the Youngsville Police Department stopped by to check in with some of our FHS Elves! FHS is proud to partner this Holiday season with the Youngsville Police Department on some special community projects. FHS will be filling Toys for Tots bins November and December.
FCA and CLA Clubs participated in collecting boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Each box was carefully filled with generous donations from our FHS Community. The students and staff at FHS successfully collected 43 boxes!
Thank you to the Town of Youngsville and Youngsville Parks and Rec for allowing our students to come out and volunteer at Trick or Treat the Trails! They had a blast and enjoyed the evening with all the kids and families. It was all treats! Our students also volunteered, along with Rammy, at Frankenfest in Franklinton. Thank you to both towns for helping us to instill the importance of volunteering to our students!
Congratulations to FHS 9th grader, Brinkley. She is the NCHSAA 3A Mid-East Regional Cross Country Champion! She improved on her best personal time to finish in 19:35! She will move on to compete in the State Championship!
Thank you to Southland Dairy Farms for bringing their mobile dairy classroom to FHS. Our Agriculture, Animal Science, and Culinary students were able to learn about the milking and pasteurization process. Classes were able to participate in a presentation where they learned the anatomy of a dairy cow, the modern milking process, food safety procedures and viewed a milking demonstration. Thanks to Mrs. Peace for helping to arrange this opportunity for our students.
We believe in Community. We believe in Diversity. We believe in Respect. We believe in Integrity. We believe in Excellence.
Franklin County is growing. We can anecdotally recognize this by observing housing developments cropping up around the county, hearing stories of houses selling the day that they go on the market, etc. Data provided by the Franklin County Economic Development Council bears this out as well, with a projected annual growth rate of up to 2.5%.
As a PreK-12 public school system, every school-aged resident of Franklin County has a place in our district. Although charter schools limit the students who may enroll with a lottery process, we welcome each and every child and we work to meet the academic, behavioral, and social development needs of all students.
As a district, we also recognize that it is important that students learn from their mistakes, and implementation of restorative practices can be powerful in conjunction with standard disciplinary consequences. This can be as simple as having a student acknowledge their behavior and taking a positive action- for instance, apologizing for taking something that didn’t belong to them or for saying something hurtful to someone else.
The important work of educating the students of Franklin County continues each and every day. The past two years have been challenging for us all, and we have wanted nothing more than a shift to normalcy. Despite our best efforts, students have had a disrupted educational experience that has created gaps that we continue to work to fill. They have needs that extend beyond academics and our schools have worked to support those efforts as well.
