Facility Use Must be a LUSD approved third party group or organization. Request is submitted to Franklin’s main office to use a facility. PTC as well as the Franklin staff are notified, and have an opportunity to notify me if there will be a conflict prior to releasing the facility to the third party.
Assemblies 2008 – 2009: –Franklin PTC indicated a desire to provide more assemblies and enrichment opportunities for Franklin’s students. We discussed potential opportunity for our students. –On Friday, November 6, 2009, Franklin and LBCS students attended Jim Weiss’ writing presentation.
Future - Enrichment A Franklin middle school teacher is currently exploring the use of the MAC- based program “Garage Band” which may result in an enrichment opportunity for your sons and daughters. –LBCS is permitting Franklin’s teacher to use its MAC lab, at no cost to Franklin, in order to develop the program.
Future – Potential Solution Geometry –Currently, Franklin’s 8 th graders travel to Loomis Grammar School to attend an early morning geometry class. They are bused back to Franklin’s campus. –Possibility may exist to offer a geometry class on Franklin’s campus during regular school hours.
Future – Economic Uncertainty Committed to serve the students of our respective schools. Continue to respect the individuality, values, and norms of each campus. Provide the best educational experience for each of the families who entrust us with the safety, social, emotional, and intellectual development of their sons and daughters.
LBCS Growth 2010 – 2011, two (2) 6 th grade classes; approximately 60 students – 2012, two (2) 7 th grade classes; approximately 60 students – 2013, two (2) 8 th grade classes; approximately 60 students. 2013, K – 8 will be completed and LBCS will be approximately 500 +/- students.
Campus’ Future Considerations Cafeteria – lunch schedules. Gymnasium – physical education, assemblies, practice times. Coordination of Franklin’s and LBCS’s schedules. All facilties, buildings, etc. are Loomis Union School District’s property.
Opportunities for Your Children Shared assemblies: –Jim Weiss Shared enrichments: –Strings program, clubs, etc. –GATE program opportunities Courses: –Future of music and physical education unknown. –Geometry could potentially be delivered at Franklin campus. Potentially have enough students on this campus to sustain our own programs.
