We are excited that you will be with us at Fowler Middle School for the 2021-2022 school year and we wanted to begin communicating some very important information as we plan for the start of school on August 12th. Please review this information carefully for important return-to-school information.
With the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year right around the corner, it is time for all parents of returning students to complete the process of checking and updating student information through PowerSchool, the Frisco ISD online registration system. You should have received information about PowerSchool registration for your child/children through e-mail. This PowerSchool registration process does include required steps for providing a recent proof of residence document. The PowerSchool registration process will need to be completed by July 30th. If you have already completed this entire process, we appreciate your prompt response.
For families who have submitted all required paperwork and returned school issued Chromebooks from last school year, class schedules will be viewable in HAC beginning Monday, August 2, 2021. As a reminder, elective course changes are not permitted following our May 1st deadline. The date and times for our 6th grade Flight Camp and 7th/8th campus visits are communicated below. In order for students to receive their 2021-2022 class schedules that is needed for Flight Camp or 7th-8th grade campus visits, the PowerSchool registration process must be completed. Additionally, for all incoming 7th grade students, schedules will not be released to any student who has not provided our school nurse with the necessary vaccination records. If you have a question regarding registration or the PowerSchool process, please email Frisco ISD at email@example.com or contact the Fowler front office. Additional information can be found on the Frisco ISD webpage.
Below is much more information about the start of our school year and we, once again, strongly encourage to you read through this detailed information. Thank you very much. We are very excited about the year ahead and look forward to seeing all Fowler families soon!

If you ordered school supplies through EPI, those packets will be available for you to pick-up in the cafeteria as well.

Please be sure you have made arrangements for a meeting place to pick up your student up at 11 am when Flight Camp ends.
