Announcements

Welcome back from the holiday weekend!

 

Back to School night will be held this Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  Links to the live zoom and asynchronous specials videos will be sent tomorrow. Every family should plan to attend!

Have you seen our request for a Head of Fundraising? If you did and had any interest, please contact us to let us know! This is a critical position and we are still in need of someone to lead the effort.

We would like to encourage family participation in the Healthcare Hero's Appreciation drive. We will be collecting “kindness cards” & letters for our local healthcare workers. We think this is a good way to give back to the community this year.

Please also remember Picture Day is on Thursday and Friday this week.

More details on each of these topics can be found below in the Fiske Announcements section.

Regards,

Atul Varma and Mike Stokes – Co-Presidents

Vice President: Scott Barton
Secretary: Kimberly Ebeling

Co-Treasurers: Aaron Gardiner and Jamie Davies

 

Message from the Principal

Calling family fun pictures….Send us a picture of your family, or child, so we can put it on our community bulletin board. The Children love to look at the board and see their picture and their friends pictures.  
 

The Library misses its books!

Many students have books at home that were checked out from the Fiske library in March. If you have any Fiske books at home, please send them in. The library staff will collect them from the classrooms or the books may be placed on the return book cart in the very front of the library.

Morning Car Line  

For the safety of our students, the upper parking lot is closed to parking during arrival (8:00-8:30 a.m.) and dismissal (3:00-3:30 p.m.) times.  The front driveway is a one-way street used for drop-off.  Please remain in a single file car line in the indicated car line area. When dropping your child/children off in the front of the school, you will be directed to move your vehicle to the front of the car line.   Once all cars are stopped, children will be instructed by a staff member to exit their car on the curbside and walk to their designated entry area.  Students should go directly to their class line.   Drivers do not get out of the car when in the car line. Once all children have exited their cars, drivers will be directed to move out of the parking lot.  For safety reasons, do not pull out of car line at any time.


 

Afternoon Car Line

For the safety of our students, the upper parking lot is closed to parking during arrival (8:00-8:30) and dismissal (3:00-3:30) times. The front driveway is a one-way street use for pick up only from 3:00-3:30 p.m.This year we will be dismissing P.A.W.S from our car line from 2:30-2:50.  Please DO NOT arrive for pickup before 2:50 so our littlest friends can be dismissed safely.

All Fiske procedures are in the Insiders Guide to Fiske that can be found on our Fiske School Webpage.

Fiske Basics

Please consider having your child write a message of encouragement.  

 

Submit the letter or card to the Fiske front desk by November 6.  

 

For each letter submitted, Wellesley Dental Group will donate 25 cents for each letter or card to the Massachusetts Nurses Association (MNA).
