Dear Isaacs Family

We are starting our third week of school and what a FUN start it has been! Students are mastering their routines and procedures, parents are figuring out the carpool and buses, and valuable learning is happening throughout the school.


There are a variety of ways we will communicate with our families. We will send out these school flyers periodically to help you be aware of school happenings. Your child comes home with a "Green Folder". Please check the green folder often for letters from your teacher or handouts from the school. You may also put a note in the folder to send back to your child's teacher. Teachers use the App entitled "Remind" to send out announcements to their individual class. We use stickers on your child's shirt and my personal favorite, a "Backpack Tag". This is a strip of paper stapled to the handle of the backpack. We understand that parents like a variety of communication methods, so we will try to use different ones to keep you informed.


Tomorrow is our first Dress Up Day at Isaacs! Everyone is encouraged to wear anything that is red. Also exciting events are happening Friday with the Librarian and Counselor. Thank you for reading about these events and more below!



Sincerely,

Kris Benson, Principal

DRESS UP DAY - TOMORROW WEAR RED!

We will have Dress Up Days throughout the year. The first semester will be all colors. Please do not go out and buy something for this day. Be creative and use what you have in your house.

KEY COMMUNICATORS


Time to Recruit Our 2015 - 2016 Key Communicators


Personal contact is one of the most effective communication methods when building support for our schools and district. We are currently recruiting parents to represent our school as members of the 2015-2016 Plano Independent School District Key Communicators group. If you are interested, please contact Amy Smith. You can reach her via email at amy.p.smith@pisd.edu.


What Do Key Communicators Do?


Attend three evening meetings with the superintendent or other key staff to learn about programs, issues, initiatives and accomplishments. This year’s dates are: Thursday, October 8; Wednesday, February 3; and the final date is Thursday, April 14, 2016.


  • Share information from the meetings with other parents and school staff.
  • Work with the principal to determine appropriate avenues of communications at your campus.
  • Communicate district news and initiatives, which will vary from year to year, but could involve election information, Education Foundation programs, legislative issues and district planning.
  • Receive occasional mailings from the district.
  • Facilitate balanced and factual communications.
