It’s good to be a Pink Family! Join the fun as we support a community business while visiting with old, and new, friends. At iCream in Frisco, “create your own ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, hot pudding, or shake from scratch right in the store. Our rapid freezing, super sweet liquid nitrogen machine instantly freezes your customized treat into a uniquely smooth and creamy dessert.” Our awesome teachers will be there too serving up the fun! And to support Pink Elementary, iCream will donate 20% of the sales.

Student Recognition

We love recognizing our students for being so AWESOME! One of the ways that we show our appreciation to our students is by rewarding them for exhibiting our 5 P's. Students have the opportunity to earn a hot air balloon for "Going Places" at Pink as well as a special prize in the office. In addition, during each Good Morning Pink, we will recognize one student from each class that is going above and beyond to display the 5 P's throughout the school. You can support by reinforcing the 5 P's at home. Be on the lookout for these great recognitions shown below!

Dr. Recess is coming to Pink on Wednesday, September 9th!

The Dr. Recess Assembly & Playground Games program is an on-site assembly and games program that promotes the importance of being active and living a healthy life by using developmentally appropriate games to teach social/emotional skills, thinking skills, and motor skills to elementary school children. It was created by award-winning teacher and author, Curt Hinson, Ph.D., as part of the Trouble-free Playground program. Dr. Hinson’s Trouble-free Playground program is currently being implemented at schools in all 50 states. The Dr. Recess Assembly & Playground Games program allows schools to improve the health and fitness levels of children by teaching them appropriate games and activities to play during recess.
