FHS TV Tech Production

Advanced video production students "suit up" for production of their silent films. Students engaged in film history by deconstructing early 20th century silent films and watching the 2012 best picture winner The Artist. They then wrote, produced and starred in their own short silent film stories. Damsels in distress,  mustached bandits and stealthy killers came to life in the TV Tech studio.

FHS Fashion Show a Success

DSC04771 640x480 2

The Franklin High School Fashion Analysis class sponsored the twelfth annual fashion show, called “Once Upon a Disney”.  The theme included classic Disney movies like Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid, 101 Dalmatians and, of course, Cinderella.  Students selected apparel from their wardrobes, styling outfits to coordinate with each scene.  On November 19th the students performed a day show and an evening show to be enjoyed by family and friends.  Some students modeled, others directed and still others worked behind the scenes.  The fashion show took place in the new Commons Area near the main entrance of the high school.  The beautifully lit staircase made the Cinderella scene spectacular!  Mrs. Champion was pleased with how well the students worked together to make this a memorable event.

FHS change in Parent-Teacher Conferences

In the September 26th edition of the Saber Spotlight we noted the changes that have occurred this year with Parent-Teacher Conference.  A recent Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article also shed light on these changes.  This year we will transition to Parent-Teacher Conferences as needed based on individual student needs.  Parents are welcome and encouraged to reach out to their child’s teaches whenever there is a question or concern in order to set up a time to meet with the teacher.  Likewise, teachers should be contacting parents when academic progress is lacking.  These meetings are flexible in the sense they can be face-to-face, via phone, or virtual.  Please click here to read more.

The ADAMM Tools for Schools grant program annually awards $10,000 a year in Snap-on Industrial tools to area high school automotive programs.  Our auto dealership members are committed to assisting the high schools in keeping their technical education programs strong.  We hope by doing this that we can attract quality students to our industry that will continue their education beyond high school and ultimately become our employees, managers and owners of the future.
