School Arrival

It has been noticed that several children are dropped off at school before 8:15 am.  Please be aware that children should not be dropped off before 8:15 am as there is no teacher supervision.  


We are happy to announce that  third, fourth and fifth graders have completed the ELA portion of the MCAS assessment. Now it is time to move onto the Math MCAS.  Fourth and fifth grade classes will be taking the Math MCAS on Monday, April 30 and Tuesday, May 1. Third grade classes will be taking the Math MCAS on Monday, May 7 and Tuesday, May 8.  Please make every effort to have your children to school at 8:30.



Children around the world

Music Around the World

Please join Fiske for the biggest musical event of the year, Music Around the World!  Wednesday, May 9th in the Fiske Gym. K-5 students will perform songs and dances from

Mexico, Ghana, Nigeria,  Japan, Russia, USA and Israel.

BOKS-Spring Mini Session

The early morning exercise program will resume May 7 and run through June 14, Mondays and Thursday.  Drop off is 7:30 to 7:40 at the gym. Program will end at 8:15.

The sessions will consist of a short warm up, running exercises, team-building games, and a bit of nutrition.  Hopefully the weather will be nice and we can try to have some outdoor activity.

If you haven’t yet participated this year, you are welcome to try BOKS, please complete the registration form sent in the latest Fiske Friday news.  Feel free to reach out to Danielle Nixon (617-359-6873) with any questions. Existing BOKS families do not need to complete a new registration.

As this is a free program, we are in need of Parent Volunteers.   This is a short six week program. If your child is participating, please try to come to two sessions over the six weeks.  

Please see the link to the sign up genius for training:
