Warrior Shout Outs
Mary Clark, District Spokesperson of the Communications and Public Engagement Department, shares some good news that have happened throughout the district. The Warrior is proud of these students and staff. Look for more information about these stories as they develop.
Shout Out To Our NASA Solar System Ambassador
Mr. Ted Samaras, an Instructional Technology Coach, was accepted into the NASA Solar System Ambassadors program. The program is a public engagement effort that works with motivated volunteers across the nation to communicate the science and excitement of NASA's space exploration missions and discoveries with the people in their communities. Our district looks forward to having him share what he learns with our staff and students.
Celebrating FHS Students
This past season, for the first time in school history, the FHS Cheerleaders qualified to compete in the National Cheerleading Competition among other top cheerleading squads in the Nation! The team traveled to Florida to compete and while they did not advance in the competition, the athletes focussed on their accomplishments and cheered on the finalists. “One of the most moving aspects of this accomplishment was the support the team felt from members of their community," said Coach, Lauren Francis. The team was honored at a Franklin Township Council meeting and will be recognized by the BOE later this school year.
Earlier this school year, Patrick Callahan, FHS Guitar Teacher, shared information about his students. Franklin High students, Gykee Wheeler (12th grade), and Saish Nellutia (9th grade), both auditioned and were selected for the NJ Music Educators Association Honors Guitar Ensemble, which auditions students from all over NJ. Our students were 2 of the 19 students selected to perform in this group.
