Principal's Message

Schenck Principal

Hello Schenck Elementary Families, 

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to Wm. C. Schenck Elementary School.  This is my first year joining the Schenck family, and I have heard nothing but wonderful things.  While I am new to Schenck, I am not new to Franklin.  I spent the past four years as the Hunter Elementary principal.  This is my 15th year in education and 10th in administration.  I am excited to get this year underway and begin to learn more about the community here at Schenck. 

It is our goal in Franklin City Schools to provide a safe, and supportive learning environment so that all students can grow, develop, and learn to their fullest potential.  At Schenck, we will continue to use the G. R. O. W. acronym as a reminder of the building wide expectations.  

Geared up and prepared 


Ownership of actions 

Willing to always try and do your best 

I use email as my primary means of communication, and will send out a weekly update on Fridays.  Please make sure your preferred email address is up to date in Progressbook so that you are included in these messages.  

I look forward to learning more about this great community and making Schenck the best place for students to learn and grow! 



Mrs. Truesdell
