Dear Fiske Families,

Our Fiske lunch recycling program is off and running. Thank you to all the parent/guardian volunteers who have come to help the students with this new program. In the past we have collected two trash bags of garbage at each lunch shift for a total of 6 per day. On our first day we only used one and a half bags. We are already making a huge impact.

Field Day is an event for students to participate in fun and challenging activities with their class. Your child will be outside in the sun for an extended period of time. Please remember to send them with sunscreen on, a hat, sneakers and loose and comfortable clothes and water bottle with their name on it. I have been reminding the children about these tips as well.

Thanks for all your help and support. This Field Day is sure to be a success!!!!

The Gr. 5 vs Staff kickball game will be held on the Fiske baseball diamond at 1:30 p.m. on Monday June 19th. The entire school will be able to watch this fun and exciting game. Please send your child to school with sunscreen on and a hat as they will be sitting outside for an extended period of time. The 5th graders will wear their class t-shirts for this fun event.
