Every MISD school is designated as a donation drop off site. WBE will have donation boxes in the front office for students, staff, and community to drop off donations. WBE STUDENTS WILL RECEIVE 5 HOUSE POINTS FOR EACH NEW TOY DONATED! The toy drive (collections at schools) runs now through Monday, December 3rd. The annual Toys for Tots culminating event will be held on Wednesday, December 5th at the MISD Center for Performing Arts. More information will follow soon about that event.

These are the same shirts we sold before - soft style material - available in youth and adult sizes- in all house colors. All orders will be shipped to the school and delivered home via your student at the end of November.

BrightBytes Survey

Mansfield ISD is partnering with BrightBytes, to conduct the Technology & Learning Survey in order to learn more about our schools’ technology use for student learning. We are asking parents/guardians to participate in the project and to provide input so we can better understand the connection between technology use and student achievement. Your participation is important to us and will make the difference between having a complete versus a limited understanding of our district's technology use. This survey is open through November 30.
