It’s about that time! Time to start getting ready to go back to school at Craig Ranch. Between back to school events, tax free weekend and school supply lists, here are some things to help you and your kids get ready to go back to school at Frisco ISD and Allen ISD.

Fill the Bus with Allen ISD

It’s a sad truth, but many families don’t have the financial ability to get all the needed school supplies, and that financial stress is multiplied when they have more than one school-age child. To help these families, Allen Community Outreach has their Fill the Bus school supply drive, which benefits Allen ISD students in need by providing all their school supplies. They are accepting donations through Tuesday, August 7.

Allen ISD School Supplies

Since a portion of our master-planned community feeds into Allen ISD, students living in these neighborhoods attend Lindsey Elementary School, Curtis Middle School, Lowery Freshman Center and Allen High School. Here’s the school supply list for Lindsey Elementary. For Curtis Middle School, parents simply pay a $30 supply fee, and Allen ISD will take care of their school supplies, except for pens, pencils and paper. As for the Freshman Center and Allen High, students only need to bring a pen, pencil and paper and they will be informed by their teachers what supplies are needed for each class.

The first day of school for Allen ISD is Wednesday, August 15.

Back-to-School Bash with Frisco ISD

For our Frisco ISD students, get ready to celebrate the new school year with the Back-to-School Bash on Saturday, August 11. This back to school event will take place at the Career and Technical Education Center from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Aside from fun activities, prizes and giveaways, there will also be free immunizations and vision screening for Frisco ISD students.

Frisco ISD School Supplies

Now, with most of our master-planned community feeding into Frisco ISD, there are different Frisco schools they may attend. The schools students living in Craig Ranch attend are Ogle Elementary School, Comstock Elementary School, Isbell Elementary School, Elliot Elementary School, Lawler Middle School, Scoggins Middle School, Vandeventer Middle School, Liberty High School and Independence High School. Visit each school’s website for a list of the school supplies your child will need.

Tax Free Weekend

Want to make sure you save as much as you can on school supplies? Make sure you get them during Texas’ Tax Free Weekend, Friday, August 10 – Sunday, August 12. That means you’ve got just one more week to get all your shopping lists together if you want to get school supplies without having Uncle Sam trying to take his cut.
