Blue Fiske Falcon
Dear Fiske Families,
Happy Presidents’ Day weekend! The students had a wonderful time wearing their pajamas to school today and all seem very excited for vacation week. I wish you a wonderful week of family fun and time together. As we hear about the tragedies in the world, it reminds me of how important it is to come together with family and friends to enjoy eachothers’ company and experience happiness each day.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
LET’S GO FOR THE GOLD!
Which classroom will take home the Gold Medal for collecting the most Box Tops? It’s a race to earn an extra recess! The goal is to collect as many Box Tops as we can for our next official submission date, which is March 1st. Please clip and save your unexpired Box Tops from the products you already purchase for your household, place them in a plastic baggie or envelope and label with your name/classroom. As always, they do not have to be precisely trimmed. Send them in via backpack or drop at the front office. I will update the standings weekly!
Last week, the top three classrooms were:
1. Ms. Herald (1MH)
2. Mrs. Hanlon (4H)
3. Mrs. Kelley (1K)
Thank you to all who have sent in Box Tops so far! Clipping Box Tops is such a fun and easy way to earn “free” money for our school–every Box Top is worth 10 cents and they add up so quickly! Let’s bring home the “Gold” for Fiske!
