School News
1.Advance Notice to all Parents/Guardians—Noon Dismissal—TUESDAY, November 3rd
All Fiske students will be dismissed at noon on Tuesday, November 3rd so that Parent/Teacher conferences can be scheduled for those afternoon hours. No lunch will be served. We will be sending home a dismissal form specifically for that day. We hope this gives you plenty of time to plan for this date.2.Rollerblading for Grades 4 & 5
Rollerblading will begin the week of October 5th for 4th & 5th graders. During their Fitness & Health class, students will learn to rollerblade. This is a very exciting unit for them. Fiske provides all of the gear from the rollerblades to the safety equipment (elbow pads, knee pads, and wrist guards) and helmets. We sanitize the equipment after each class. Your child may bring in their own gear from home. Helmets need to fit their heads properly and fasten underneath their chin and all gear needs to be labeled with their name. It is strongly suggested that you place all of the gear in a bag and clip the helmet on the outside so that they can carry their equipment safely. Classes are scheduled as follows:
4GN—Wed. & Thurs. 9:15-9:45
4G—Wed. 8:45-9:15, Thurs. 9:45-10:15
4H—Thurs. 8:45-9:15, Fri. 11:45-12:15
5C—Mon. 9:15-9:45, Tues. 2:15-2:45
5L/D—Mon. 9:45-10:15, Tues. 1:15-1:45
5O—Mon. 8:45-9:15, Tues. 1:45-2:15
Please contact me if you have any questions.

We had a beautiful day for pictures. Haywood Photography will be sending us your pictures in about five weeks. We will schedule a retake date at that time. On retake day pictures will be done for students who were absent on the original date and for students whose parent/guardian requests a retake.
Fiske sibling photographs can also be taken on retake day. Order forms for sibling pictures are separate and available in the Fiske Office.
