Dear Franklin Families,
Welcome to the 21-22 school year!! As the next school principal, I am excited to begin this school year with our Franklin Falcon community. I have had the fortune of spending my entire 28 year career in the School District of Janesville. I began as the physical education teacher at Roosevelt Elementary School. I then came to Franklin Middle School for nine years where I taught health and was the academic learning coach. In 2009 I became the principal at Jefferson Elementary School. Jefferson was my home for the last 12 years. When Dr. Urness left to become the superintendent in Jefferson, Wisconsin, the time was right for me to return to the middle school level in a school that has always held a special place in my heart.
I earned my Bachelors of Science from UW - LaCrosse, a Masters in Education Leadership from Cardinal Stritch, and I am currently working on my doctorate at Edgewood College. I believe continued success at Franklin Middle School will come from engaging our families and students, setting high academic standards, and building a sense of community.
FMS has always been a community of learners that does whatever it takes to help students achieve and succeed so that everyone is college, career, and community ready. We will continue this mission and I look forward to all of the possibilities that will come with our continued partnership.
Mr. Kurt Krueger
