Much To Be Thankful For...

As we prepare for all the festivities of Thanksgiving break, I want you all to know how very thankful we are for all that you do for our schools throughout the year. Our students are exposed to learning and life experiences best equipping them for life after PHS - all that we do is possible because of all that you do. Enjoy your time with family, put on those sweatpants, and embrace the food coma coming your way for we all know resistance is futile. Happy Thanksgiving!!
In Loving Memory…

Prosper recently lost a true friend of the school district and
community at large. Dave Williams did much more than build houses for the Prosper community – he built homes for Prosper families. Moreover, he was always steadfast in his support of the school district whether for the purpose of celebrating students or assisting with the population explosion of our school district. Mr. Williams will certainly be missed by many, but the legacy of his goodwill will live on forever. On behalf of all of Prosper ISD, we thank you… WE ARE PROSPER!

National Substitute Appreciation Day

November 18th


Substitute teachers make an incredible impact on our children’s education. Too often we forget how challenging it is for a sub to take over a beloved teacher’s classroom, but we have amazing substitutes here in Prosper ISD who take on this challenge, and they deserve our recognition and appreciation. Thank you to our wonderful substitutes! We appreciate all you do for our students and staff!

Attention Reynolds and Rogers 8th Grade Parents!

November 28th

As you are well aware, our children are growing up in a sex saturated society where television, movies, music and the Internet promote casual sex as an acceptable recreational activity. However, your child is going to have a unique opportunity to hear a far different message when Aim For Success, Inc. presents its nationally acclaimed program, Achieve Success, which shares the advantages of saving sex for marriage.

You are Encouraged to Attend the Parent Program
Location: Reynolds Cafe
Date: Monday, Nov 28th
Time: 6:00-7:00 PM

The Parent Program will provide a preview of the student program and equip you with creative ideas to help your child avoid sexual activity until marriage. More Info
