School Dedications – Aug. 28 and Sept. 11

Frisco ISD will open four new schools this year providing even more safe, clean and modern learning environments for Frisco students. The schools are: Dr. Erwin G. and Elisabeth Pink Elementary School at 3650 Overhill Drive , Lucille Rogers Ashley Elementary School at 5601 Christopher Lane, Calvin Bledsoe Elementary School at 1900 Timber Ridge Drive, and Sam and Ann Roach Middle School at 12499 Independence Parkway.

Dedications of these new schools will be held on Sunday afternoons after the new school year has begun. Traditionally, FISD invites family and friends of those people for whom the schools are named. Three of this year’s schools – Pink, Bledsoe and Roach – are named for living community members who have all been instrumental in serving FISD over the years. Dr. Pink, Roach and Bledsoe all served as school board trustees. Mrs. Pink is a former teacher who was an active Frisco PTA leader and volunteer. Lucille Ashley is deceased but was a teacher who is fondly remembered by many of the city’s senior residents. Ann Roach is also deceased but her legacy of strong community involvement continues in the lives of her children and grandchildren who are still active in FISD.

Ashley and Roach elementary schools will be dedicated on Sunday, Aug. 28. Ashley’s ceremony will be at 2 p.m. and Roach will be at 4 p.m. The two schools are located near one another on the east side of Frisco.

Pink and Bledsoe Elementary Schools will be dedicated on the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 11. The Bledsoe ceremony is at 2 p.m. and Pink is at 4 p.m. These schools are both on the west side of Frisco.

The ceremonies are open to the public and are a special time for students and faculty to show off their new buildings and for Frisco residents to honor people who have helped make FISD the great district it is today.
