As part of the kick-off to the 2016-17 school, all Franklin County students were asked to identify two things: 1) something they excelled in; and 2) something they wanted to get better at. The staff wanted to send the message that everyone is already good at something, and at the same time everyone has room to improve. These “stars of excellence” and “targets for improvement” are displayed throughout the school buildings serving as a visual cue that we are all on this gradual journey toward excellence.
Each month we will be featuring in this space, a student from each of our buildings. We are proud of our students and their accomplishments and look forward to helping them achieve their goals.
