Franklin High School MCJROTC believes that it takes a village to support a child and there is no stronger influence than a child's family. Children have two main educators in their lives - their parents (or guardians) and their teachers. Studies have found that parents (or guardians) that play an active role in their child's education will have a crucial effect on the child's grades and behaviors.
There are a few of ways in which you can get involved with our program:
1. MCJROTC Boosters - Committee: Involvement in the life of the school is a great way to be a crucial piece recommended changes and enhancements. The FHS Boosters works with the FHS JROTC Program at the school to find creative ways to assist in the needs of the cadets, fundraising ideas, and provide program updates through resources like social media, websites and through our parents. This is a great space for parents to share ideas, assist other parents with questions, and to liaise the instructor(s) of the program. We can never have too much participation and we would encourage all guardians to check out what this new endeavor has to offer. We meet ever 2nd Thursday of each Month in the JROTC classroom.
2. Volunteering: FHS MCJROTC at Franklin High School, is a Public school and encourages parents and guardians to regularly volunteer, in and out of the classroom, on field trips and any other functions that may arise throughout the school year. Forms for chaperoning can be found at bcps.org
3. Cadet Support: Taking an active role in your child's education at home is important for the cadet and the school. We cannot do this without your support and who best to guide a cadet! FHS MCJROTC has many resources available to assist parents and guardians to ensure the tools needed are available to help our cadets mold into positive role models in our community.
