Fiske Families,

Happy Mother’s Day!  I hope all our Fiske Moms have a wonderful day that is filled with joy and sunshine.

A Fisketastic thank you to the families who showered our teachers with kindness during Teacher Appreciation Week.  We had coffee, cupcakes, sandwiches, cookies, letters of kindness and so much more.  A special thank you to the PTO and Kim Eberling for arranging a lovely lunch for us on Thursday.  It was such a nice treat.

End of Year Fiske Library News!

As we enter into the final stretch of the year, we need to get our library books back to the library shelves! Please take a close look at home to see if any of the Fiske library books are lurking on your shelves.

Important dates 

Beginning May 10, we will stop lending books out to any student with an overdue book. Overdue book slips are sent to students every week.

On June 1, books will stop circulating and email notices about overdue books will be sent to parents. 

Books that are not returned by June 14 will be considered lost and fines will be assessed via emails to parents.

Please help us get as many books back as possible! If you have any questions, please contact librarian Anna Ring:
