FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Frisco Chamber of Commerce New Teacher WelcomeThe Frisco Chamber of Commerce will welcome approximately 900 new Frisco Independent School District teachers and staff at the New Teacher Welcome on Monday, July 30, 2018 at 10:30 AM. The New Teacher Welcome, presented by CoServ, will be held at Dr. Pepper Arena at 2601 Avenue of the Stars in Frisco. The event is not open to the public. “CoServ is thrilled to be the presenting sponsor of this year’s Frisco Chamber of Commerce New Teacher event welcoming new Frisco ISD teachers and staff! Sponsoring the New Teacher Welcome for the past several years has been a wonderful way for us to work with the exceptional Frisco Chamber and Frisco ISD staff, as well as a way to meet many CoServ Members – all while letting these dedicated teachers know of the many different areas in which CoServ is honored to provide support,” said Vicki Sargent, Director, Community Relations of CoServ. “The Frisco Education Foundation (FEF) puts the icing on the cake by allowing us to present New Teacher Grants that day, as well. I can truthfully say that it is the highlight of our back to school efforts! The theme of this year’s New Teacher Welcome is “Teachers Rock!” New teachers and staff will have the opportunity to visit over 30 vendor tables and receive door prizes and gift bag items donated by local businesses. In addition, the new teachers and staff hear from Tony Felker, President/CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce; Dr. Mike Waldrip, Superintendent, Frisco ISD; Vicki Sargent, CoServ; Allison Miller, Frisco Education Foundation; and the City of Frisco’s Mayor, Jeff Cheney. “Our business community recognizes the value that the Frisco ISD brings to the community,” said Tony Felker, President/CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce. “Our quality educational system and strong community partnerships are paramount in attracting employees and companies to the area as well as in developing an outstanding workforce for the future.” This year, Frisco ISD will open one new high school, one middle school and two elementary schools which brings the district up to 10 high schools, 17 middle schools, 42 elementary schools and three special program centers.
