Here are the top three stories today in McKinney-Frisco:

  1. The completion of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County is scheduled for Aug.1 according to the Collin County sheriff’s office. Investigators from the sheriff’s office will be working out of the new building to help investigate crimes against children. The hope is that with the new center so close to town, children will have more accessible resources to fight against abuse. The center will be located in McKinney at Heritage Drive and Harroun Avenue. (Star Local Media)
  2. The grand opening for a new store in downtown Frisco will happen this week on Apr. 9. Earth and Roots is a CBD store that will also sell Delta-8 products, including gummies, salves, and more. There are also products available for your pets, too! Everything is made with natural and organic ingredients sourced locally in Addison, Texas. (Community Impact)
  3. Frisco ISD is proud of all 43 Elementary Campus Teachers of the Year, including the top Finalists for the District Teacher of the Year Award! Each teacher was nominated by a colleague and chosen based on how well they represent the District’s mission and beliefs while being a role model for their colleagues.
