Add Your Culture to Multicultural Float at Community Parade

Parents and students! Join the Frisco Community Parade this Saturday, November 12, at 10am to honor our nation’s veterans and celebrate all of the schools, organizations and businesses who call Frisco and Frisco ISD home. The annual event features floats, vehicles and marchers traveling through downtown Frisco, starting from Toyota Stadium.

Frisco Community Parade kids Want to be IN the parade rather than watch it? We are looking for students to help celebrate multiculturalism in FISD by dressing in your culture’s traditional clothing and joining the Council of PTAs’ multicultural float. Contact Inclusivity Chair Lori Chrysanthopoulos at lorichrys@bellsouth.net for more details on participating.

Check the event website for more information about the parade, including the route map and road closures.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Take the Olympathon Challenge

We are at about $27,000 of our $45,000 goal, and we need your help! We have issued a challenge to every student to find/secure just $10 more in new pledges over the weekend. If every student at Phillips brings in a new $10 donation, we will be close to our goal, which means pies to the faces of the Specials teachers!

Our students are super proud of mastering this course, and they had a great time! Check out and share this professionally produced video of highlights from the Olympathon. You can use it to gain those last few donations!
