Fiske Families,

It is Memorial Day weekend! This is the time of year when we pause to be thankful to all those who have died in the service of our country. Please take time this weekend to remember service members who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country. 

A huge thank you to Co-Creative Arts Coordinators Teresa Peters and Laura Smith for arranging to have Ruby Bridges talk via Zoom with our fourth and fifth grade classes.  Mrs. Bridges reminded students to follow the golden rule of treating others the way you would like to be treated.  Mrs. Bridges also shared stories about her beloved teacher Ms. Henry.  Mrs. Bridges told the students that the kindness of Ms. Henry kept the meanness that was happening outside of the school away from her.  It was truly an amazing experience for our fourth and fifth grade students to hear Mrs. Bridges’  share her stories.

Thank you to Mrs. Hanlon and her class for collecting diapers for the Kids Backing Kids Organization.  4H was able to collect 4,407 diapers for families across Massachusetts, Thank you 4H!


Congratulations to third and fourth grade students for completing the 2021 MCAS assessments.  Our Fiske Falcons worked very hard and we are proud of them.
