Dear Families,

Families and friends are invited to join us for the fourth grade presentation of Ruby Bridges on Wednesday, February 5th at 8:45 a.m.  Grade four students have been preparing songs, solos and instrumental parts. We hope you will join us to hear these extraordinary students.

On Friday, January 31st,  your child/children will bring home their first Standard Based Report Card of the school year. This report card is a glimpse into the daily life of your child/children. Growth Mindset is at the core of our work at Fiske. Children are encouraged to embrace mistakes and grow from them.   Please take the opportunity to review the progress report with your child/children and reflect on their growth this year. Here are some questions our School Psychologist Sharon Grossman has suggested to use when reflecting on the progress reports with your child/children.

  • “What goals did you set for yourself for the first part of the year in ____ (e.g. math, reading, music)?” 

  • “What strategies have you used to work on that goal?” “What’s working?” “How can we and your teachers help you move forward your goal(s)?”

  • “How does it feel when you get closer to your goal?”

  • “What goals do you want to set for the next month or so now that we know how you have been learning?”

Please return the Parent/Guardian signature sheet and manila envelope.  We will reuse these envelopes for the June progress report. Thank you


Calling all scientists! The fourth annual Fiske Science Fair will be held on Sunday, Feb 9th from 2:30-4:00 pm in the Fiske gym.  Please encourage your child/children to be part of this Fisketastic event. For more details on preparation timeline for the Science Fair, please visit the Science Fair website: Student participants, you can sign up here. We are also looking for volunteers to help during the Science Fair. Interested parents/guardians/staff, you can sign-up here.
