The Wednesday Flyer R. J. Fisher Middle School’s Weekly News April 1, 2009 Page One Principal’s Corner Dear Fisher Parents: Help Requested! Our office personnel strive to be both friendly and responsive when it comes to serving our school community, while also trying to accomplish the daily work that supports our organization. As such, I am asking for your help in minimizing the mountains of lunches, PE clothes, assignments, sporting gear, birthday party cakes and supplies, etc., that are dropped off in the office for delivery each day. Please assist us by making every effort to set your day’s plans with your children before sending them to school each day. Every time a request is made for a message to be relayed to a student, a secretary in the office must relay the message by paging students multiple times during break and lunch on the intercom system, following which anywhere from twenty to forty students fill the office all scrambling through the drop-off table to find their particular item(s). This makes it very difficult to maintain an efficient and productive office environment. (See photo below) We understand that on occasion a family may miscue, but the requests for delivery have gotten a bit out of hand and we would sure appreciate your support. On a different note, I hope you thoroughly enjoy your upcoming spring break! Sincerely, Lisa Fraser Principal TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! PLEASE SUPPORT THE PROGRAMS THAT SUPPORT OUR KIDS! ANY donation at ANY level is greatly appreciated! Visit our website to see how your donations are put to good use enhancing your child's education and to make a donation. Every dollar will help to mitigate the impact of planned district budget cuts and help keep Fisher a great place for our kids! Donate online, or simply send in a check to your child's homeroom class. Our deep gratitude goes out to those who have already donated.
