More Play Time for the 2019-2020 School Year
Frisco ISD elementary students will get an extra 10-15 minutes of play time in the upcoming school year.
As part of a pilot program, all 42 FISD elementary campuses will schedule extra time within the school day to allow students to exercise their bodies and their brains, according to Christy Fiori, managing director of elementary schools, who presented the program to the board of trustees June 10.
The structured “brain breaks” would last about 10-15 minutes and be in addition to the traditional 30-minute recess. The total play time will be divided into periods best suited to each school. Christy says brain breaks may be taken outdoors as appropriate.

Go Baby Go: Gifting Modified Cars to Special Needs Children
Visit any neighborhood sidewalk and you will see children of all ages enjoying time in their play motorized cars. Frisco ISD developed the program Go Baby Go with children with special needs in mind. This program helped produce modified cars for children who show limited mobility.
With support from both an engineering staff and fellow Frisco ISD students, they helped bring these cars to life for special needs children.
Go Baby Go has continued growth and support with the likes of The Frisco Sunrise Rotary Club.
