Congratulations to all incoming 9th grade students and welcome to the Franklin High School Warrior family!  As the newest members of our community, you are our pride and joy!  On behalf of the entire Warrior community, I pledge that we will do everything possible to ensure that you develop your talents and interests to their fullest while you are here.  As you prepare to take this very important step in your academic life, I would like to give you a few simple pieces of advice.


    1. Be involved.  High School is an opportunity to discover more about who you are and explore who you aspire to be.  Enrich your experience by taking advantage of the many opportunities that Franklin has to offer.  Become involved in clubs, athletics, and academic organizations.  These four years are the time to stretch and thrive.


    1. Be Kind.  As a part of the Class of 2026 you will find lifelong friends.  Together, you will work hard in your classes, enjoy time engaging in extracurriculars, and grow into young adults.  These relationships are special.  Treat each other kindly and support each other through this exciting time.


    1. Be Proud.  You are entering a premier academic institution.  Our graduates have gone on to do great things.  Be proud to be a Warrior.  We are proud to have you as part of our community.


    In this time of transition, I would like to assure you that we have a dedicated staff ready to assist you with all aspects of school life, including social issues, academic assistance and college and career planning.  Your teachers, counselors and dean will be valuable assets to you as you navigate high school.


    As your Vice Principal, my primary responsibility is to ensure that you have everything that you need to be successful.  I look forward to getting to know you over the next four years.  Enjoy your high school years, as they will pass quickly.


    Go Warriors!

    Mr. Brundidge
