“The time is always right to do what is right.”

Dr. Martin Luther King

Fiske Families,

School will be closed on Monday, January 16th in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King. This holiday is to celebrate the life and achievements of Dr. King. Many honor his legacy with a day of service and taking the time to thank those who work to make their community stronger. Thank you to all of our PTO volunteers who make each day at Fiske Fisketastic.

Thank you to Tracy Cyr and Kelley Keenen for organizing Bingo Night, and to all the volunteers who helped to make this a memorable night for all. As I walked in the door I was reminded of what a truly wonderful community we are all a part of at Fiske. By the time I left, my bag was full of baked treats and I had a lunch date with 5 lucky winners for pizza with the principal. Thank you all for coming and supporting this event..


Did you know that the 50th Anniversary of METCO is being highlighted on Chronicle!

Tune in to Channel 5’s Chronicle on Monday night, January 16th at 7:30pm! This episode of the show will celebrate the 50th anniversary of METCO and tell the program’s story.
