One of several dance troupes that performed Dec. 5 during the annual “Franklin’s Finest” showcase.

The township school district strutted its stuff Dec. 5 in the second annual “Franklin’s Finest” showcase at Franklin High School.

For more than there hours, visitors were shown what the district believes is the best Franklion schools have to offer.

The morning was mostly taken up by displays and seminars involving programs going on at all district schools.

Starting at about 11 a.m., a variety show of sorts was presented in the gym, with singers and dance troupes from all the schools performing. There was also an appearance by the FHS Junior ROTC corps.

the event had John Ravally, the district’s new schools Superintendent, awestruck.

“I think it’s amazing,” he said. “I can’t believe all the different things that go on and how excited people are.”

“It’s a really good way to showcase to people what we are really all about,” he said.

Ravally said the day was planned by a committee comprised mainly of Franklin Middle School math teacher Donna Langar; Mary Clark, the district’s policy coordinator; MacAfee Road School principal Bill Grippo; Roberta Mitchell, the district’s fine visual performing arts supervisor, and Terri Seggio, an English teacher at Sampson G. Smith school and the director of its theatrical productions.

The programs that were on display and that were discussed in classrooms are “a good sampling of the different initiatives that are going on throughout all of the buildings,” he said. “Teachers have volunteered their time to come in and expain all of those things to the parents. It’s wonderful.”
