Dear Fiske Families,

There was lots of excitement today about the snow day. Please remember to have your children wear their jacket, mittens, hat, snowpants and boots so they can play in the snow. Children who do not come with boots or snow pants are only allowed to play on the paved blacktop areas. Children do not go outside for recess if the temperature is below 20 degrees.

Do you have an upcoming Kindergartener for the school year 2017-2018? The next Kindergarten Roundup is on Saturday, March 4th from 9:00-12:00 at Sprague School. For Kindergarten registration information please visit the Wellesley Public School website. All registration forms can be downloaded from this site.

Sign, Children, Caution ...

It has recently come to our attention that cars are speeding down Hastings Street and the neighboring streets. Many children walk to and from school on a daily basis and we want to make sure they are safe at all times. Please take every precaution when driving to and from school. Thank you

The science fair is here!

The second annual Fiske Science Fair will be held on Feb 11th from 4:00-5:30 p.m. in the Fiske gym. Please come and join us to celebrate all of our scientists and see their latest inventions.

World Heritage Night is coming!
Join the incredible celebration of our community on Wednesday, March 1st at the Wellesley Middle School. In collaboration with the World of Wellesley, the Fiske community puts together a colorful global journey showcasing the countries and heritage of our diverse community. Please consider signing up to cook some of your family’s favorite cultural dishes and provide a poster board showcasing your heritage! It’s a wonderful event and something that is truly unique to Fiske.

This year, kids will have passport books which can be stamped when they try something from a different country. We will give out small prizes to these adventurous culinary travelers!

Fitness and Health Open House/Jump for Heart Fundraise.

Please come join your child during fitness and health classes, the schedule is below. During these classes you are invited to participate in many jumping stations. We will be using short ropes, long ropes, aerobic steps, potato sacs, hippity hops, and many other fun pieces of equipment.

We will be also raising money to donate to the American Heart Association. This part is completely voluntary. Fundraising forms will be sent home with your children and they will walk you through the fundraising details.

Last year we raised almost $4,141.00. This was our best year yet! The American Heart Association has generously donated many balls and ropes to our recess equipment and also many Field Day stations are made possible by generous donations from the Heart Association. They are very grateful for our school and all of our generosity. To make an online donation or to gather more information please go to heart.org/jump and search for Fiske. Please return all forms by Feb. 28th.

We hope to see you in class! Please note rescheduled dates for recent snow day.
