Fiske Families,

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10! Please join me in thanking our teachers for the amazing work they do for our Fiske Falcons! 


Join us for the 2024 Fiske S.T.E.A.M. Fair on Sunday, May 5th @ 4-5:30 pm in the Fiske gymnasium

We have over 40 Fisketastic students who will be sharing their S.T.E.A.M. projects this weekend! Come join us to see their discoveries and celebrate the many ways that everything we do combines Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math! 

Music Around the World

Join us on Wednesday, May 8th for Music Around the World. The popularity of this concert has outgrown the size of our gym! Given our limited capacity, we will hold two performances. The performances will be:

  • Families of grades K-2 students –  8:45-9:45a.m.

  • Families of grades 3-5 students – 10:45-11:45a.m.  

Please come to only 1 of the performances as both are the identical shows and we want to have enough room for all who want to enjoy the concert.


Student Placement 2024-2025

As we look forward to next year, we are starting the student placement process.  During this process your child’s teacher will meet with the placement team that includes special educators, ELL teachers, Math and Literacy Specialists, school psychologist, school social worker/adjustment counselor and principal to determine class placement. Only if you have essential information to share relative to your child’s placement that is either new, or your child’s teacher may not be aware of, do you need to send me an email (mcgregorr@wellesleyps.org) by Wednesday, May 15th.  An email is not required for your child/children as our placement team will collaborate to assure each child is in a compatible class with at least one friend.  Please know, we do not accept requests for teachers. For students who are moving to Hunnewell, we will be consulting with the Hunnewell staff on placement.


FYI- MCAS Dates for 2024

Thank you to our Fifth graders who worked incredibly hard on their math MCAS this week.  Next week our fourth grade students will be taking Math MCAS on Monday, May 6th and Tuesday, May 7th. Please make sure your child arrives at school by 8:30 a.m. Students who arrive after the assessments begin will have to take it on a test make up day.
