Science Fair Help

Do you have a background in, and a love for science, math or computers? Would you like to advance STEM careers for today’s youth? Would you like to see what amazing research is being done by Jasper kids? WE NEED YOU to be a Science Fair judge! The Jasper Science Fair will be held on Friday, December 4, 2015. We would need you for about half a day starting around 8:00 am. We will feed you breakfast and lunch, and give you unlimited coffee, juice and soda! We have projects in a wide range of categories all the way from biology, to chemistry to physics to engineering and computers, and we can work with you to find the perfect fit. Your feedback for the students is invaluable, and will help them in future competitions as well. Please consider being a Science Fair judge! You can contact me at Pamela.Grow@pisd.edu.

Information from our technology department (repeat from earlier in year)

Plano ISD has implemented InfoCenter, allowing you to better control how you receive communications from your school or district. The following is a guide to help you get started.

What is InfoCenter?: InfoCenter provides access to all the messages and information sent by your organization. Accessible from any internet-enabled device, InfoCenter visually displays and organizes alerts, notifications, and attachments for easy review and reference. InfoCenter also allows you to customize how you receive communications from PISD (campus and district).

How do I sign up for InfoCenter?: Signing up for InfoCenter is easy. Using the email address that you have on file for your district (emergency card), follow these three steps:

1. Download the InfoCenter by SchoolMessenger app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Market. You can also access the InfoCenter web portal at https://infocenter.schoolmessenger.com/

2. Click the “New User” button, enter your email address, and create a password. An email will be sent to that address with a secure token. Note: If you receive an “already claimed by another user account” error message that means you’ve already created a SchoolMessenger account via another SchoolMessenger product, such as Contact Manager. Simply follow the “Return to login” link and login. Use the “Forgot your password” link if needed.

3. After authenticating via the token sent to your email, return to InfoCenter and sign in using your email and password.

What’s in InfoCenter?:Once you’ve created your account, the records associated with your email address will be linked automatically. You can then:

  • View the records associated with your account.
  • Review the last 30 days worth of messages for all your associated records.
  • View your contact information, and configure how you’d like to receive notifications.

Important Things to Know:

  • Regardless of how you choose to receive notifications, all messages associated with your records will be retained in the InfoCenter inbox for 30 days.
  • You can opt into receiving Device Notifications (Push) under Notification Preferences. When choosing to receive Device Notifications, a badge or alert will appear when you receive new communications from Plano ISD.

Our provider, SchoolMessenger, makes the security and privacy of your data a top priority. As one of over 100 approved signatories to Student Privacy Pledge, you can feel ensured that your student’s information is safe and will never be sold, rented or shared.


Yearbooks are available to be purchased online. These may be purchased with a credit card at www.jostensyearbooks.com .

Musical Auditions

Actors, Singers, Dancers, Technicians. It’s time for Jasper’s musical, Little Shop of Horrors.
