The Texas Association of School Boards has designated January as a time to thank the locally elected leaders who work to create quality educational experiences for the students of Frankston ISD. The staff and students of our school would like to acknowledge the hard work of the FISD Board of Trustees. We appreciate your continued commitment and service to education and to our community. Thank you FISD School Board!
Student Engagement Through Social Learning
Mrs. Shelly Ballou’s 4th-grade classes are using a video discussion platform, called Flipgrid, that allows students to use video they create in the classroom to explain what they are learning. The Flipgrid response system ensures that every student has a voice by providing technology tools which encourage and inspire creativity. Mrs. Ballou’s most recent Flipgrid project had students research and create video presentations on famous explorers. Students learn about all of these explorers from watching their classmates’ videos!
Band Members Successful at Auditions
