Frisco ISD PTA reached 20,000 members thanks to the hard work of Frisco PTA board officers and the support of Frisco ISD faculty, families and the community. Let's not forget the incredible support of Mayor Jeff Cheney and Mrs. Cheney's recent announcement to join all local 59 PTAs. PTA membership continues to grow which means we have a voice at the state level to represent our district. To learn more about the benefits of a PTA membership or to join PTA, just click here.
Board officers can conveniently sign up for FLO and President's training sessions offered by Frisco ISD Council of PTAs. See Training dates and times on our website.
Frisco ISD council members trekked to Houston last weekend to attend Texas PTA's LAUNCH. This annual conference plays an integral role in the life of a PTA officer. Over the course of a weekend, council members attend several workshops and sessions to gain valuable information across a spectrum of topics from tests to important legislation that can potentially impact our schools. For example, TEA Commissioner, Mike Morath, provided an overview of new STAAR documents which will provide educators with better tools to help students. In addition, attendees get an opportunity to connect with other officers within and outside their school district and engage in knowledge share as well as make connections. For the Frisco ISD council, the weekend wasn't without its rewards. The J Paul Company sponsored (and spoiled) the team with an amazing dessert bar and chocolate fountain. Mmmmm. Finally, at the awards ceremony, council members were honored with several awards, including the High Five and the prestigious Key Award, only awarded to three councils thanks to reaching an astounding milestone of 20,000 members. Purefoy Elementary PTA and Carroll Elementary PTA reached platinum status for Voice for Every Child, awarded to less than twenty-five Texas schools.
Attendees and those who missed it are already saving the date for next year's Launch conference to be held in Dallas between July 20-22, 2018.
