Dear Franklin Regional School District Community,


As we begin a new academic year, we are thrilled to share some exciting news with all of you. Our district has achieved the prestigious designation of an AASA National Lighthouse District, and we couldn't be prouder of this remarkable accomplishment!


This recognition is a testament to the unwavering dedication and commitment of our students, teachers, and staff. Together we have created an educational environment that fosters excellence, growth, and innovation.


Our students continue to impress us with their achievements, not only academically but also in the arts and athletics. Their talents have been recognized with numerous awards and championships, reflecting the outstanding efforts they have put forth in all areas of their education.


At Franklin Regional, we believe in providing a well-rounded education, and our extensive range of extracurricular activities exemplifies this commitment. These opportunities allow our students to explore their passions, develop new skills, and build lasting friendships outside the classroom.


Equally important to us is creating a safe and inclusive environment for all our students. Through various initiatives, we are nurturing their mental and physical well-being, ensuring that they feel supported and empowered to thrive.


None of these achievements would be possible without the incredible efforts of our dedicated teachers and staff. Their passion for education and unwavering commitment to our students make Franklin Regional School District an exceptional place of learning and personal growth.


As we move forward, the Lighthouse designation will serve as a guiding beacon for our future endeavors. It reinforces our commitment to continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence in every aspect of our educational journey.


We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire Franklin Regional School District community for your unwavering support and collaboration. Together, we will continue to elevate the standard of education to make a positive impact on the lives of our students.


Here's to an inspiring and successful school year ahead!


Warmest regards,


Dr. Gennaro R. Piraino, Jr.
