This week, as we wind down for spring break, I want to celebrate a few of the recent achievements of our students, our teachers, and our staff… These are just a few of the accomplishments that reflect the excellence that is Frankston ISD.  



Ms. Shawna Lynch has done a fantastic job with our theater students.  Several of our Frankston students were honored on Wednesday at the district competition for UIL One Act Play and we want to congratulate them for a job well done.
