You've Been Jingled 

The Fischer PTA is launching a You've Been Jingled campaign to spread holiday cheer this season!

When you purchase a holiday yard sign from the Fischer PTA for another Fischer family, the holiday greeting will be delivered to the family by a friendly Fischer PTA volunteer. The sign will be placed in their yard along with a note explaining that you sent them a holiday greeting! All deliveries will be contactless and a surprise for the receiving family!

All orders are taken at MemberHub: https://fischerpta.new.memberhub.store/. Click on the You've Been Jingled snowman image to order, this is also a picture of the sign. All you need to do is enter the receiving family's last name and their student's class grade for each sign purchased. Signs are $12 each, with no additional fees. The Fischer PTA will take care of the rest! The site is open to everyone to participate, no login required! 

Orders need to be received by December 9th or while supplies last! Deliveries will be made on or before December 12th.

If you have any questions, contact Gwen Eisenmenger at eisenmenger@live.com or Karen Sienko at kpsienko@gmail.com!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

WELCOME TO THE NEW SCHOOL YEAR!

Hello Fischer Families,

Welcome to Fischer for the 2020-2021 school year! As we prepare for this new year, which is unprecedented and requires from all of us a new level of flexibility to navigate a new normal of either remote or hybrid learning. Please know that the PTA is a resource here to not only support our Fischer staff and teachers, but all of our families and students through resources, programs and advocacy. Although the year will undoubtedly be very fluid, as a PTA we will do all we can to make it a fun, exciting and most memorable year.

This year we will be bringing back many of our programs and events - some virtually and, if possible, some new events too! However, the PTA is only as strong as its volunteers so we personally invite you to get involved. We are always looking for volunteers and there are many opportunities to utilize the many talents and resources of our families. We would love to have you involved in the capacity which works best for you.

Speaking of volunteers, this year’s executive board and committee chairs are full of talented and hard-working parents who have already proved to be ready to roll with the changes!

If you have any questions, ideas, concerns or simply want to get involved and don't know how, please feel free to reach out to us anytime at conradfischerpta@gmail.com OR kpsienko@gmail.com OR gre15@live.com.

We thank you for your support of our Fischer students, and also for your support of the PTA! Together, let’s make it a great year!
