“RPS Shines is one way that we show our students how much we value and love them,” said Superintendent Jason Kamras. “We are so thankful for the support of our community partners and every volunteer who plans to donate their time, resources, or skills so that our schools shine a bit brighter for our students this fall.”
“It is our hope, that Rodney’s fierce commitment to equity and his love for his students and community will not only inspire us here in Richmond, but that the name, Rodney A. Robinson, becomes synonymous with equity and excellence across our nation,” said Superintendent Jason Kamras.
“In each one of these candidates we saw great leaders who we know will lead with love and inspire our students to greatness,” said RPS Superintendent Jason Kamras.
On behalf of the staff at Franklin Military Academy, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our cadets can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that to be successful in school; our cadets need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a significant difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our cadets’ success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your cadet's learning by ensuring that he/she:
❖ Is in compliance at all times in wearing school uniform
❖ Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
❖ Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
❖ Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
❖ Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
❖ Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
❖ Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college
❖ Shares concerns with Col. Hudson or Lt. Col. Smith so situations will never escalate
Please consider joining our school volunteer program as our cadets can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:
❖ Teacher-led instructional support, usually in the classroom
❖ Reading and assisting in math classes with cadets who need extra help
❖ School-wide events
❖ Student recognition events
❖ Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers
Please share concerns immediately and I am excited about school year 2018-2019.
