Thank You!

There has been much fundraising activity that has taken place this fall between the Franklin Music Boosters and the FHS Future Trip Fundraising. It has been incredible to see how our community has responded to these fundraisers and we especially want to than you, our music students and families, for your tireless support.

Our new Calendar Raffle has been a huge success, and it is exciting to be announcing the winners daily this month. It was a pleasure giving out the many iTune gift cards earned for a job over and beyond by many of our students. Thank you for your efforts!

Our Concert Series Ad Book did very well reaching out to our community partners. We appreciated the help of new Booster parents following up with businesses to help close the deals.

Weather and the FHS field have both cooperated this year and we are on target with our 50/50 football raffle this year. Thank you for coming out and supporting us each home game.

It is through these fundraisers that the Boosters is able to come alongside our music department to offer enrichment opportunities such as music scholarships, music clinicians, and concert accompanist.

Congratulations!

FHS has 39 students auditioning for Sr. Central Districts this month. It is a significant accomplishment to be ready for these additions and we congratulate each student. Check back soon to hear the results of their hard work.

FHS added 26 new members to the Tri-M Honor Society on 11/13. These students have shown themselves to be academically capable and musically gifted. Through performance and community service, they'll develop confidence, creativity, critical thinking, compassion, and a host of other leadership skills sure to serve them well in school and beyond. It was a pleasure to have Boosters coordinate a reception celebrating their achievements.

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown was a huge success. Community papers did fantastic write ups and the show was amazing. Thank you Middle Schools for bringing back this opportunity for the students!
