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

For over 40 years, the Wellesley Service League has been collecting toys to distribute to Wellesley Friendly Aid families in the Wellesley community. Now is a great time to clean out those toys your kids have outgrown or aren’t playing with anymore and donate them to the Toy Drive. We accept new and nearly new toys, books and sporting equipment (most sought after items are Legos, Knex, dolls, toy cars, trucks and bikes.)
And if you don’t have toys to donate but would like to give, we also accept donations that go toward gift cards for older age kids.
So clean out and help make some less fortunate members of our Wellesley community very happy this holiday season!!
Look for the Wellesley Service League toy collection boxes during October at all the Wellesley schools and at the Wellesley Free Library. If your item is very large or if it is more convenient, we will be happy to pick it up from your home.
If you have any questions, please contact Laura Hill at Hillfamily629@verizon.net or 781.738.1047
