Enjoy your week with your family and friends and re-energize for the home stretch - great and challenging days ahead for our amazing PISD community - thankful that we are making the journey together. WE ARE PROSPER!

    Attention 2018-2019 PISD Pre-K Parents...

    All early childhood services will be housed at Light Farms Elementary for the 2018-2019 school year. This and other programs are evaluated annually to determine the most appropriate school site for services. During this aggressive growth phase, the most "appropriate" site will be where we have the appropriate "space", which potentially causes movement from one year to the next. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Ms. Slicker or email Dr. Hickey for questions regarding special education.

    Orchestra Receives a 1st Division "Superior" Rating

    The Prosper HS Orchestra recently competed in the Region 24 UIL Concert & Sightreading Contest, for the first time since the orchestra program was established. The orchestra received a 1st division “superior” rating from each of the three concert judges and the three sightreading judges, which ultimately garnered the PHS Orchestra the highest award of a SWEEPSTAKES Trophy. Some of the judge's comments were “WOW, you guys sound like a group twice your size.” – Martha Bailey, and “WOW, I just cannot say how much I enjoyed your performance. Very musical and well-prepared.” – Gary Needham.
