Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday, dear Franklin, happy birthday to you!Franklin Elementary School students and staff filled the gym on the 50th day of school Friday for a 50th birthday bash. The Sterling grade school turns 50 this year, and to celebrate the occasion a time capsule from 1993 was opened and its contents revealed. After the capsule was emptied, a new batch of items from this year was placed inside, to be opened by the next grade school generation. Some staff members and students also donned some groovy duds in honor of the year the school was built – 1968.
