 GenTX Day, Friday, May 5

On Friday, May 5, all WFISD staff and students are encouraged to wear a college t-shirt to promote higher education.  

GenTX Day is a statewide, daylong celebration to inspire students to pursue and achieve a higher education and we want all WFISD students and teachers to participate. The THECH encourages students, school and communities to accept the Gen TX Day 2017 challenge that supports all students, especially high school seniors, in getting to and through college.

New Front Entrance and Procedures


As many of you are aware, the office has experienced some changes.  Our new security entrance is almost complete and we thank you for your patience this week.  
The new doors remain unlocked for entrance until 8:15 am.  Once the 8:15 am tardy bell rings, the new doors are locked.  Parents and students will sign in and receive a tardy slip at the window area.  For those of you who still enjoy walking your child to the classroom, please arrive on time.  Parents will NOT walk children to class who arrive after 8:15 am.  
 This is just an extra incentive we are providing for students at Franklin this semester.  There are 3 requirements to qualify.

#1-Zero tardies
#2-Only 0-2 absences
#3-Must have an A or Satisfactory in Conduct

The students who meet these requirements will enjoy a 30 minute dance party in the cafeteria.


Do you have 30 minutes a week to make a difference in the life of a 2nd grader? Read2Learn is starting back up October 10th here at Franklin and we need volunteers!!!  Call us at 940-235-1156 or email Mrs. Calvert,, for more information!

Doors will not open until 7:45 am!  School starts at 8:15 am! Be on time!!
