1.Field Day Notes from Mrs.Gerst
Hi Fiske Families, Here is the info on our Annual Fiske Field Day. The sign up genius link is at the bottom of this section. I will be including a more detailed write up about what Field Day is and how to best prepare your child for Field Day in the next couple of weeks. For anyone who wishes to volunteer for an entire session here is the information. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks for your support.
Thank you for your help with Field Day Friday May 29th.  The two session times are:

  • Session I 8:40-10:00 am for grades 3, 4, and 5
  • Session II 10:10-11:20 for grades K, 1 ,2 and the 5th graders are there to help at each station too.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to help make for a smooth transition and to allow time to find your station and to make sure you have all of your questions answered.  I have given a quick note on the station.  Once you sign up I will email you a more detailed description and map of the station.  Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it.

2.Toy Drive for Children’s Hospital
Hi! Our names are Elizabeth Vahey and Anya Pineau and we are seniors at Wellesley High School. We are running toy drives for Boston Children’s Hospital at all of the Wellesley elementary schools as part of our senior project. We are looking for new or gently used books, toys, board games, and art supplies for long term and visiting patients to use as entertainment while in the hospital. Collection boxes can be found in the main entry. Thank you for your donations!
Sincerely, Anya and Elizabeth 
3.Are You Moving? Private School?
