Dear Fiske Families,

Today our First Grade friends presented the school with an assembly on kindness. 1H read us the book What does it Mean to be Kind by Rana DiOrio. 1K shared acts of kindness we can all do to show we care about each other. Ms. Hennessey then explained that the first grade created a kindness tree that is displayed in the main hall outside of the gymnasium. Ms. Hennessey encouraged our community to look for acts of kindnesses from others to display on our kindness tree. We are all looking forward to our tree blooming with many acts of kindness.

Recycling at Fiske

In conjunction with the Fiske Green team and the Fiske staff, Fiske children will be piloting a recycling program after April vacation. During lunch children will be recycling trash and recyclables before going outside to recess. On Friday, April 7th our Student Council will be presenting the school with an assembly on the recycling program and sharing a demonstration video with all students. Our Fiske students are looking forward to doing their part for our environment.

To start this program we are looking for parent volunteers to help children with recycling during lunch. Please consider volunteering for a 40 minute session to help with this exciting program. Volunteers must have a current CORI form on file. To sign up please go to the signup genius, http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d4ea5a623a6f85-cafeteria .

Lunch periods are:

11:25-12:05 Grades 1 and 5

12:05-12:45 Grades K and 3

12:45-1:25 Grades 2 and 4

Thank you for helping us with this program.
