Frankenmuth School Board
Brandon Muller, President

 

Mr. Muller,


As you all well know, last week the 2021 school year wrapped and culminated over a year of dealing with a global pandemic, the challenges of in home learning, adjusted school days, extra curriculars being cancelled and the upheaval of just about every facet of every day life.  We would like to express our gratitude to the board for how you have handled yourself, worked with our community, faculty, students, and parents to provide for the best possible experience for all.  It was a learning experience for us as parents, and I’m sure for you all as well.

With Mrs. Martin resigning as District Superintendent we lose a terrific steward for our children, one who put communication and openness at the forefront of her interactions with us the parents.  We would like to thank her for her service and leadership in her tenure not only as Superintendent but as a principal and faculty member.  We as a community feel it is more important than ever to retain good leaders, who put our students and their education and concerns first.

We have been blessed to have Coach Martin as an administrator, coach, and mentor to our students and student athletes for the last ten years.  His vision for what our athletes and students should exemplify has been something for the entire district to be proud of, and he has proven that time and again.  His guidance with our school facility projects over the past years has helped Frankenmuth maintain the standard of excellence we all expect of our school.

As the publicity surrounding the incident with the football team has been broadcast through the newspaper and other media outlets it is very concerning to us that facts are being misrepresented, lies are being spread, and peoples reputations are being damaged by those who either have an axe to grind with the football team, or have it out for Coach personally.  We couldn’t be prouder of how he handled the issues with the football team, being open and honest with the kids, and the parents.  The State Police investigation came back to confirm what the internal investigation found, which was a finding that there was no harassment, hazing, or misconduct. In addition no further investigation was warranted.  We consider the matter closed and hope the school board does as well.  We encourage those people who have been actively undermining the investigation and trying to affect reputations for personal satisfaction to look at the facts of the case, without bias and apologize to those they were trying to destroy.

Frankenmuth is an amazing community, made up of families who care.  Now is the time to move forward, support Coach Martin and the administration and work towards a 2021/22 school year we can all be proud to be a part of.

 

Thank you,

Frankenmuth Community Members, Parents and Athletes
