Thank you to the third grade for hosting the school assembly this morning. The children summarized the book, The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes by Mark Pett and Gary Rubenstein. This is a story of a girl who learns that is okay to make mistakes. The third graders showed us how we use our growth mindset every day and learn from our mistakes to stretch our brain. Thank you third grade!
Thank you to the Fiske PTO for their support of our programs at Fiske. This year students have experienced incredible Creative Arts programs; these could not happen without the PTO’s tireless work to fundraise for these programs. Thank you Ceida Chan and Minisha Varma for your work as co-presidents. I look forward to our continued work together in 2017.
Thank you to Anna Papoutsis for organizing the spirit wear sale. The items have arrived and were sent home today. I will be wearing my new sweatshirt with Fiske Falcon pride this vacation.
