Welcome to Chick-fil-A...at Argyle Intermediate!

The Argyle Intermediate School 5th-grade math classrooms of Mrs. Mouton, Mrs. Hartjen and Mrs. Porter were transformed into Chick-fil-A restaurants earlier this week!


Students learned and engaged in reviewing decimal operations, filled out employee handbooks and Employees of the Day were honored! The students did a great job applying problem-solving to this creative learning opportunity.

"Students solved a series of word problems using all decimal operations to complete customer orders," Mouton said. "Parents were such great supporters and helped bring my Chick-fil-A room transformation to life. It was so much fun and an interactive way to incorporate word problems with decimal operations."

Living for Zachary Heart Screenings

Living for Zachary’s mission is to raise awareness and prevent sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in youth. The organization was founded in honor of Zachary Schrah, who was only 16 years old when he collapsed without warning during a high school football practice in Plano on April 2, 2009.

After Zachary’s death, his mother Karen founded Living for Zachary, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in June of 2009. Since its inception, Living for Zachary has impacted thousands of families and children across Texas through youth heart screenings, AED donations, CPR/AED certification classes, scholarships, and awareness events.
