2016-2017 Kindergarten Roundup

Each April, Frisco ISD elementary schools host registration for students entering kindergarten the following school year. To attend kindergarten, students must be five years of age or older on or before September 1.

This early registration process gives parents information to ease the transition into kindergarten and assists the District in planning for enrollment growth and staffing needs.

For details, please click here.

Lost & Found Will Be Donated Friday, March 4

Staff laid out every piece from the Lost & Found on the cafe stage for 2 days this past week and every class was escorted to walk by and grab their items during their lunch period. The picture included is what is still leftover from that exercise, so as you can see it is still overflowing after several weeks of reminders.

All items will be donated next week's Friday before Spring Break, March 4. If parents would like to look thru it, you are welcome to sign-in with the Front Office either:

  • before school until 7:50am,
  • during a lunch visit, or
  • after school until 3:20pm.

Reminder - PTA Board Interest Forms Due March 3

If you would like to serve on the Hosp PTA Board, please fill out the 2-page Officer Interest/Nomination Forms that went home in last week's Thursday folders. If you lost or can't find it, there are extras in the front office.

All forms should be returned to the front office by March 3rd. If you have questions about the form or Board nomination process, please contact Jennifer Scott at councildelegate@hosppta.org.

Calling All Spring Breakers!

We would love to see where our Hosp families enjoyed Spring Break! Whether you're close to home at a movie or visiting the Fort Worth Stockyards, or perhaps on a Breckenridge ski slope or at Cinderella’s castle, please snap a photo and send it our way!

You can email the image to the Hosp email (hosp@friscoisd.org) and we'll include your photo on a hallway bulletin board. All photos must be received by Tuesday, March 15.

One photo per family, please.

Include the following information with your email:

  • Student name(s)
  • A brief description of where the photo was taken

Thank you! We look forward to gathering our globetrotting student photos.

Reminder - No Visitors During STAAR

STAAR testing will take place during the months of March and May. In order to ensure a quiet and secure testing environment, NO VISITORS are allowed on campus during the 2 weeks of testing. This policy applies to ALL GRADES even if your student is not taking the STAAR test.

Mark Your Calendars for the "No Visitors" Weeks:

  • March 28 - April 1
  • May 9 - May 13

What Does "No Visitors" Mean?

  • No eating lunch with your student (all grades).
  • No drop offs/deliveries for any grade level (includes lunches, water bottles, library books, homework, etc). Everything must be packed with your student that morning. If your student forgets their lunch, make sure they have $ in their My Payments Plus account to buy lunch that day. Healthy choices and vegetarian options are available every day.
  • No PTA, workroom or classroom volunteers.
  • Do not schedule Dr appts or early dismissals on testing days for your 3rd, 4th and 5th grader. Students in grades 3 - 5 will not be pulled out of testing.
