8/30/21: Letter to Franklin Middle School Families

August 26, 2021

Dear Franklin Middle School Students and Families:

I need to make our school community aware of some important news.  On August 25, 2021, I was formally approved by the Iroquois Central School's Board of Education to become their next High School Principal.  While I am looking forward to beginning this new and exciting journey, I am truly sad to be leaving Franklin Middle School and the Ken-Ton Family.  I am so grateful for my time in Ken-Ton and most cherish the life-long friendships that I developed in this fantastic District. It has been a great honor to serve our students and community over the last 11 years at Kenmore East, Kenmore West, Hoover Middle School, and at my favorite location:  Franklin Middle School.  I will be on-board for the first few weeks of school and anticipate that my last day of work in the District will be on September 26.  

The District is currently working on a plan to put a new Principal in place at Franklin Middle School.  We worked very hard during my tenure to build a strong foundation of teacher and administrative leadership that will easily sustain this transition.  

I will never forget all of the positive experiences that I had in this tremendous school district.  I will always be Ken-Ton Proud.  

With appreciation,

Christopher J. Ginestre
