6th Grade Aim For Success Parent Preview

Attention parents of 6th grade students: Each year, Frisco ISD partners with 'Aim for Success’ to present information on “helping young people make healthy choices that will give them freedom to reach their dreams and goals.” You are invited to come to a parent only preview session on January 10, 2019, from 5:30-6:30 in the Clark MS Library. Students will see the presentation on January 18, 2019, during their Study Skills class. Below you will find information on the parent meeting as well as an opt out form for the student presentation if you don’t want your 6th grader to hear the presentation. Please return these opt out forms no later than January 16, 2019, to your child’s Cougar Den teacher.
