Dear Fiske Families,

Thank you Ms. Verret and Mr. Wilson for directing such a wonderful concert this morning. Watching the orchestra, band, and third grade recorder performers play I could not help but think about the book Grit by Angela Duckworth. Our band and orchestra performers come to school early for practice sessions, participate in lessons after school, and practice at home. During music classes our third grade performers spend much of the school year learning each piece and practicing at home. Each child works diligently to perfect playing the complex pieces we heard this morning. This purposeful practice towards mastering a music piece encompasses both Growth Mindset and Grit. Thank you to all the parents/guardians, teachers, and friends who continue to support our musicians’ interest in music. This morning was wonderful and each performer should be incredibly proud of their efforts.

Fiske Field Day Reminder

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!!!!
