PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - Welcome Frostwood Tigers!  I hope everyone had an enjoyable Summer! The PTA welcomes you in joining us for another exiting year ahead of us.   Thank you to our wonderful teachers and staff for working so hard to make the first day of school such a success.  We truly have the best teachers and staff that create such an incredible learning environment for our children.  

We also have the most giving parent volunteers who make our Frostwood community operate so efficiently.  Thank you to those who have worked so hard over the summer to get ready for back to school.

There are many exciting opportunities and events to come. Our website,, is being updated frequently with the latest information, so be sure to check it often.  New this year, Tiger Tales will be published every Monday.  Check your inbox on Monday mornings for important news, information, and dates.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about PTA.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE - Frostwood Elementary is excited to start another successful year on Monday, August 22nd, at 7:55am.

Here are a few reminders:
•Doors open to students at 7:35am. Please do not drop off before that time unless your student is a TAP/patrol. School starts at 7:55am. (5 minutes earlier than last year.)

•Parents may walk students to class Monday and Tuesday ONLY.

•Students begin preparing at 2:50 for 3:00 dismissal. Any dismissal changes should be made before 2:00. CALL the main office. 7132515700.

•Please follow this link to our safety video. This video addresses dismissal. Walkers going south and east of campus will be escorted to the Plantation/Memorial corner crossing by adults. Parents can meet their students at the corners (as seen in the video).

•There will be NO Plantation door dismissal. Students who live directly behind Frostwood (North) and in between Plantation and Gessner who can walk/bike INDEPENDENTLY (probably grades 3-5 ) will be able to exit with a teacher and will be walked to Beauregard. They will NOT be released to parents until they reach the corner of Beauregard and Plantation. (The reason for this change is that based on student surveys and coordination with local police it is determined that parents and students crossing the carpool line on foot is extremely scary and dangerous.)

• Please remember to have a POSITIVE Carpool experience. Please follow this link to our safety video.

•Don't forget the PTA meeting in the cafeteria on Monday, August 22nd, at 8:15.

Please stay tuned for additional directions and updates throughout the first day and week!
