Calling All Perkins & Franklin Alums!
Help preserve the history of the 100-year-old Perkins Elementary and the former Franklin Junior High school by sharing your mementos. Here’s how to help:
Perkins Elementary School Principal Michael Derrick is looking to create a display case with memorabilia from its school's 100-year history. If you have anything from your Perkins experience you'd like to share, please contact him.
Anything from the Franklin Junior High School experience from 1950-1979 that you want to share is welcomed, especially ...
Books and periodicals – Classroom materials, including civic and political material
Ephemera – Postcards, programs, theater tickets and souvenirs
Photographs, letters and journals – Please make the copies you need before handing us the originals. We will accept digital or paper copies, too.
Attire – We’re especially seeking uniforms worn for school duties.
Yearbooks and newsletters – Originals are most useful, but some copies (reunion materials) are welcomed, too.
Trophies – Awards, plaques, medals and other recognition
Office equipment – Typewriters, staplers, phones, etc.
Art – posters, albums, games and other cultural work
