Sem Elementary - Dedicated Every Day in Everyway!

Dear Sem Families,

Thanks for a fabulous first week back after Spring Break! It was tough for the students at the beginning of the week due to the break and the time change but they made it to the end of the week fine.

Next week, March 21-24, Student Council will be holding our annual Frisco Family Services Food Drive. Announcements will be made each day to remind students to bring in household items such as canned food, boxed food items, baby products, cleaning supplies, etc. Our Student Council Officers will be coming around each day to collect the items from individual classrooms. Students will also have the ability to earn some extra recess based on what is brought throughout the week. Thanks so much for your support.

As the months continue to get warmer, we will begin to have more students walking and riding bikes to school. PLEASE BE AWARE and follow all of the school drop off and dismissal procedures. In addition, follow all of the city laws as well.

It is extremely helpful and SAFE for everyone if you refrain from the following:

  • Drop off/pickup anywhere on Yoakum or Honey Grove. The stop sign at that intersection is not considered a drop off and it makes it extremely dangerous for the crosswalk and others around. In addition, it holds up traffic.
  • Making U-turns in the middle of the road. Again, extremely dangerous for other motorist and/or pedestrians.
  • Crossing the street in places other than a marked crosswalk.
  • Use of the cellphone in school zones.

Remember to take some time to complete the online school survey at Your feedback is important to us and will help plan for 2016-2017. The survey is open until Sunday, March 27th.

Lastly, please see the attachments to the email in regards to the following:
