Educator Named Outstanding Science Teacher of the Year

A fifth grade teacher at Allen Elementary School has been honored by the Science Teachers Association of Texas (STAT) for her dedication and outstanding contributions to science education.

Christina McLain was named 2017 Teacher of the Year for fifth through eighth grades. A 17-year veteran educator, McLain has taught and coached in Frisco ISD for seven years at various grade levels.


Frisco ISD Works to Help New Students Adjust

Frisco ISD added more students than any other district in Texas from October 2015 to October 2016, approximately 2,600 students. Another 2,500-plus have moved in since then, with enrollment expected to reach 64,000 students by 2020.

Helping students transition to a new school and district is an important part of FISD’s efforts to meet the needs of the whole child. That means meeting a student’s social, emotional and physical needs, as well as their academic ones.

Studies show students who feel like they belong do better academically. Events and activities across the District help students get connected to their school and each other.


Angel Program Supports FISD Students

Volunteers are busy sorting through truckloads of donations for Frisco ISD students in need. The annual Angel Program, coordinated by local non-profit With Love It’s a Small World, will benefit more than 1,500 FISD students this year.

Area businesses and organizations join FISD students, parents and employees in donating clothes, toys and other gifts for each angel. The donations are then sorted and prepared for distribution in mid-December.

“We are so fortunate to live here, many of us don’t realize how many children are in need,” said Kim Gage, a volunteer with Frisco Women’s League. “But when you come here and see all these bags and the children they represent, and think that without this program, they may not have a Christmas, it’s really impactful.”

Frisco ISD is grateful for all donors and volunteers who make a difference in the lives of our students and families.

‘Tis the Season for Winter Performances

Frisco ISD student singers, bell ringers and musicians have a very busy holiday schedule with concerts and performances throughout the community. It all kicks off this Saturday evening, December 2 at Merry Main Street, the City of Frisco tree lighting event at Frisco Square.

Student groups will be performing on all three stages at Merry Main Street and in coming days at school concerts, for senior citizens and throughout the FISD community.
