Message from the Principal

Grades 5 - 8   "Teaching Children; Building Futures" 

Dear Students and Parents,

Happy Holidays!  With Thanksgiving behind us and the festive holidays in the near future, George Fischer is eagerly getting prepared.  We have the G.O. sponsored Warm Hands/Warm Hearts and the Toys for Tots programs underway the week of December 8-12.  If you are able to support these two programs, we are looking for new gloves, mittens, hats and socks, as well as new toys for children in our community.  We will have collection boxes in the lobby for you.

We also have our grades 7 & 8 ensemble groups performing for their winter concerts on December 8 and December 11, respectively.   All concerts start at 7:00 pm.   We hope that you will be able to join us to get you in the spirit of the season.

From our administrators and staff, hope your holidays are happy and always be safe!
