June, 2014 marks the 50th graduation anniversary for the Franklin High School Class of 1964. This class was the second class to graduate from Franklin High School when it was located in the building currently known as the Horace Mann Middle School.

Members of the Class of 1964 are invited to process into the Field House as part of the graduation ceremonies of the Class of 2014. The presence of these Golden Graduates reinforces the threads that link the Franklin community with the Franklin Public Schools.

If you were a member of the Class of 1964 and would like additional information about this gathering, kindly email us or call us at: 508-553-4814.

Autumn 2013

November 6, 2013

We are at the beginning of November and Lifelong Learning courses are active, rigorous and engaging.

After school we have students studying music through: The String School of Franklin, the After School 4th/5th Grade Band, the 4th/5th Grade Honors Chorus, and Private Music Lessons. Over 1,000 student spaces are filled each week in Solutions, our Extended Day/Enrichment program that operates at each elementary school.

Adults are participating in Child Care Provider courses that award continuing education credit to the participant. Additionally, numerous adults are enrolled in Hatha Yoga, Tai Chi, Zumba Basics, Zumba Toning, and Zumba. This semester, we partnered with several businesses to offer specialty courses: Getting Paid to Talk with Voice Coaches Development Group, Gourmet Food & Wine Tasting with Mark Lenzi of Franklin Liquors and Donna Lathams of Garden Farms, Beginner's Cold Process Soapmaking with Ann Fisher from The Soapbin, Molly's Apothecary, and Kettlebells for Women with Victoria Lynch of f.i.t. We also have adult students enrolled in Creative Writing, Watercolor, Zentangle, French 1, Italian 1, Digital Photography, and Adobe Photoshop Elements. The Advanced and Intermediate Volleyball classes meet at the HMMS on Monday and Tuesday evenings, and Men's Basketball meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the high school gym.

The Private Music Lesson program offers instruction to elementary school (grade 4 or 5) children through adults. Lessons are available for bass, cello, clarinet, flute, guitar (acoustic, bass or electric), low brass, percussion, piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, tuba, and voice. The lessons take place at the high school.

New students are always welcome ... just contact Lifelong Learning.
