“Honor the leap as well as the landing.” Shannon Donavan-Monti
  Fiske Families, What a WILD WEST it was!  I had a wonderful time selling tickets and getting to see so many Fiske families enjoying the day.  Thank you to Jill Fulginite and Erica Flagg for working to make this a successful event. Thank you to all the volunteers who came to run the activities and to the sponsors of the event.  This collective effort raised $30,000.00 for activities for the Fiske students.  Thank you all for taking part in the WILD WEST! This morning we were delighted to have the Brain Game program for our students.  This program was brought to us by the Fiske Creative Arts Committee.  Students and teachers participated in a game show and LOTS of dancing. Here are some pictures of the fun.   photo 1.JPGphoto 2.JPGphoto 4.JPGphoto 4.JPG   PTO Meeting The first PTO meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 30 at 6:30 in the Fiske library.
