Dear Franklin Families, With the impending hot weather we will be shortening the school schedules starting tomorrow for the remainder of the week. The elementary school will dismiss students at 11:00 tomorrow through Friday. The middle school will dismiss students at 12:00 tomorrow through Friday. The high school will dismiss students at 12:15 tomorrow through Friday. I apologize for the inconvenience but do not want students in classrooms in the afternoon when the temperatures reach their peak. I hope the students enjoy the last week of school. Sincerely, Dan LeGallo SAU 18 Superintendent dlegallo@gm.sau18.org 603-266-9833

PSS grade 1 students who are learning about the ocean had a visit from a University of New Hampshire researcher and graduate student today. Rachel is studying Marine Bioacoustics. She shared recordings of humpback whales obtained by UNH researchers. Grade 1 students asked amazing questions about how whales make their sounds and how sound travels under water. It was a fascinating learning experience for the students.

5/23/24 Dear Franklin Families, I am pleased to share with you an incredible act of kindness. Brenda Petelle, Food Service Director, and I met with a gentleman yesterday who donated $10,000 to Food Service to pay off all the student lunch balances in the district! The donor wishes to stay anonymous. Student balances will be updated in the next week or so to reflect this generous donation. I hope this news brings a bit of relief to our families during these difficult economic times. Sincerely, Dan :)
