Franklin MS Weekly Update - May 8

Franklin Families and Students, 

Good afternoon! I hope that you have had a wonderful week. 

On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to thank all of you for your generosity, kindness, and sincerity during Teacher Appreciation Week. Our staff has been touched by the caring gestures, the heart-warming notes and messages, and the many other displays of appreciation that they received. A special thank you goes out to our amazing PTA for all of their hard work and dedication that made our teachers feel valued this week. We are all very grateful!

We were so excited to continue to see our students in their virtual classrooms this week! We had another successful week of distance learning and it was a lot of fun to join several sessions to see our students engaging in lessons, connecting with one another, and accessing instruction virtually.  

Below my email signature you will find a few updates about Yearbooks, End of the Year Procedures, and Virtual After-School activities.

In closing, I would like to wish all of our Franklin Moms a very happy and healthy Mother’s Day! Best wishes for a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.

FMS 2019-2020 Yearbook

Although the end of this school year has looked a little different, there are some traditions that will remain in place, and one of those is the Franklin MS Yearbook. If you are interested in ordering one, you can do so here. All orders need to be placed by May 22nd and there are a limited number of yearbooks available. The timing and delivery of the yearbooks are not finalized at this time, but we will share additional details in the coming weeks. 


Student Item Pick-Up Procedures

We are currently in the process of finalizing the plans for our students to pick-up their personal items that are still at school. During the next few weeks, school staff will be emptying all contents of lockers into bags labeled with student names.  During a designated pick-up day, we will distribute the bags with locker contents.  Unfortunately, per the health department, we cannot allow students into the school to retrieve their own belongings. The Student Item Pick-Up Schedule will be shared with the community next week.


Virtual After-School Information

FCPS Middle School After-School has put together a number of virtual after-school activities to engage middle school students in the arts, music, STEM, physical fitness, cooking, games, puzzles, literature, and more – things students can do at home.

Franklin students can access these virtual after-school activities by joining the “Franklin MS After-School @ Home” Google Classroom. The classroom code is: zaua4on

There are a variety of activities  students can choose from in the "Classwork" tab. We hope you enjoy this site, and feel free to access any and all of it to help you pass the time actively during this time of social distancing. If you or your students have ideas for other activities, please contact our After-School Program Specialist, Mrs. Molle (

Be safe! Be active! Enjoy and have fun!
