End of Year Edition

EOY Technology Things To Do...

As the end of the year draws nigh, we understand that you have a mound of things to do. We want to add more things to your plate! Just kidding!! But as you are thinking about your lists of things to do, please see the EOY Technology Checklist.


This year, we are going to collect your classroom Technology Boxes on days designated for each team. You will bring your technology box along with the technology check-off sheet (we will put these in your box) to room 138 (across the hall from the front office).


Here is the schedule for that (also listed on the checklist).

Tech Box Turn-In Schedule:
Tuesday, May 22nd by 3:30: SLC/ALC
Wednesday, May 23rd by 3:30: PPCD/Speech

Thursday, May 24th by 3:30: Pre-K/Bilingual


*If, for some reason, your turn-in date doesn't work for you, just shoot us an email and we will work with you on a different time.

IF you are leaving Frisco ISD...

If you are leaving Frisco ISD and not returning next year...AND...you have a bunch of items in your FISD Google account that you want to keep, then you will need to use Google Takeout. Watch this video for instructions.


Holler at us if you have questions or need help with this.
