Dear Andrews Family

What a beautiful week! We hope that you and your family enjoyed the three-day weekend. While our students were gone on Monday, Andrews teachers participated in an Ed Camp with the teachers from Skaggs, Wyatt and Mathews. In fact, several of our Andrews staff members led an Ed Camp session. I want to give a big "thank you" to Mrs. Artigues, Mrs. Moore, Ms. Sandall, Mrs. Subramanian, and Mrs. Varnau. These staff members invested a significant amount of extra time in preparation for this important responsibility, and I am very grateful for their efforts. Our teachers always love the opportunity to continue their professional growth, and we know that their learning directly impacts the opportunities that our students receive. We look forward to the continued academic progress of all our Andrews Eagles!


Please mark your calendar for Open House! Our students are excited about this wonderful opportunity to show you what they have been learning in the classroom. Open House takes place on Thursday, March 3rd, 6:00-7:30 PM. See you there!


Have a great weekend!



Joy Lovell, Principal

Plano ISD Bond Election

On May 7, 2016, Plano ISD voters will decide on a $481 million bond proposal to fund initiatives recommended by the Plano ISD Facilities and Technology Task Force. Appointed in August, 2015 by the Plano ISD Board of Trustees, the task force included citizens, business leaders, teachers, principals and parents. The task force reviewed enrollment trends and projections, established construction and renovation needs, validated costs and sought input from fellow community members. After five months of study, debate and public input, the task force made final recommendations to school trustees which are included in this bond proposal. If approved, the bond initiative will provide funding toward eight major project areas with no increase to the tax rate and will impact all Plano ISD campuses through district-wide security updates, renovations and facility upgrades, as well as technology improvements. Find out more, including specific project allocations, at www.pisd.edu/2016bond. You may send questions to askpisd@pisd.edu.

Plano ISD - Parental Engagement Survey

There are many ways in which parents may be involved in the education of their child. Extensive research has shown that activities such as reading, communicating with the child, and setting expectations have the largest effect on student achievement. Other forms of parental involvement, such as attendance and participation in school functions, also contribute positively to achievement in school.


This Parental Engagement Survey will help us understand some of the ways in which parents are engaged in the education of their child. This information will also guide us in providing support to the parents in our community.


With the 2015-2016 school year in mind, please take a moment to answer this brief survey.
