Blue Fiske Falcon

Dear Families,

Fiske is an incredibly giving community.  For the past two weeks we have been collecting gently used baseball equipment for children who would not otherwise be able to play baseball.  This week I was contacted by WMS eighth grade student, Tyler Lack, who is the Wellesley representative for Project 351.   Project 351 is a year long service program for students. As part of this project Tyler is collecting gently used clothing, footwear and coats for Cradles to Crayons.  These items will be distributed to families in need throughout Massachusetts.  Next week our Student Council members will be out in the morning during arrival to collect any donations you may have.  Thank you for your help with this project.

The online auction opens today at 4pm!! If you have already registered for the event, you will receive an email from Greater Giving with online bidding instructions.  The auction will be open for bidding until Friday, March 29th at 11:45pm.

For those who are not able to attend the auction, please use this link to set up an account and participate in the silent auction.  https://thefiske2019.ggo.bid

The printed auction catalogue will be coming home in backpacks today.  Be sure to grab yours and start bidding!!

Thank you for your support!
