As summer is coming to a close, it’s time to start revving back up for the school year. We hope you and your family have had an amazing summer and are ready to go back to school! To help make sure all the residents of our master-planned community are ready to start off the school year right, here are a few events, dates and important information you should know about!

Back to School Bashes and Donation Initiatives

Getting everything your child needs for the school year can be hard, especially for those that are less fortunate. These type of back-to-school bashes are great events for you and your family to go to if you want to learn more about your child’s school and also donate school supplies to help families who can’t get all the supplies themselves. The following are the main back-to-school bashes and donation initiatives near Craig Ranch:

That means you and your family can get all your school essentials without having to pay any sales taxes! This is the perfect weekend to pick up all your kiddos’ school supplies.

First Day of School

Last but not least, both Allen ISD and Frisco ISD will be starting school back up on Monday, August 21, 2017.

If you’re not ready to go back to school just yet, that’s okay. If you are, looking to have a little more fun before the summer is over, then make sure to take advantage of all the great family-fun amenities at Craig Ranch!
