Summer is in full swing now. We are busy getting the building and schedules ready for September. Please look for some changes at George Fischer Middle School next year. One big change is that we will follow a 6 day cycle, even and odd days for some classes, everyday for academics. Our time schedule has changed and lunch periods will take place sooner. Please check back for details regarding these changes.
Enjoy your summer and be safe.

Good Day Parents, Happy summer! There is lots to do during the summer months and our staff is diligently working to get us ready for the upcoming school year. We will have some new experiences starting with a six cycle day, earlier lunch periods for all grades and a new time schedule. As we complete our tasks, we will share information that is important for you to know.
We also hope that you can spend some time reading with your students, as well as encourage them to complete their summer reading assignments.
We look forward to a successful 2017-2018 school year with our students.
