Greetings Parents and Community Members,

As you know quarter 2 has ended and report cards can be viewed online through Home Access.  

The second half of the year brings many activities to our middle school students.  Please look for some of the upcoming events including spirit week, book fair, Family Fun Night, Assessments, field trips and more.

This is also the time of year when cold and flu season bring us unwelcome sickness.  Please remind  students to dress for the weather and  wash hands often.  This helps to minimize the time of sickness.

With Warm Regards,

John Piscitella, Principal

George Fischer Middle School
