Eighth Graders Celebrate Veterans
How do we preserve the legacy of our veterans? This is the question that the 8th grade students at Dr. Phinnize J Fisher Middle School will explore in their next unit. Through their core classes and related arts, students will research and create final products which will be displayed at a Veteran’s Day ceremony at Fisher Middle School on November 11.
Eighth graders will be interviewing veterans from our community and beyond for this project. If you are a veteran and/or have a family member or friend who has served in the armed forces, WE NEED YOU!! Interviewees are needed from 8:15-3:15 Tuesday, November 1st and from 8:15-10:00 on Wednesday, November 2nd. Please contact Mrs. Ornelas at email@example.com if you would like to donate your time to share your valuable story with our community.
These students will also be conducting a fundraiser with the help of the PTSA to sponsor an Honor Flight. This local non-profit transports local WWII and Korean War veterans to our nation’s capital to visit the memorials and statues which were built in their honor. American flags may be purchased in honor of a family member or loved one. These flags will be displayed outside of the school on November 11th.
Watch for more details on these Veteran's Day events!

Red Ribbon Week Begins Monday
Students, next week is Red Ribbon Week at Fisher! Each day, we will wear clothes that remind us to stay drug free. Monday, we show we are “RED-y” to be drug free by wearing red uniform shirts. Tuesday, we will “sock it to drugs” by wearing fun socks. Wednesday, we will “team up against drugs” and wear our favorite team shirt or jersey. Thursday, we will help our friends stay drug free by dressing as twins with them. Friday, we will “stomp out drugs” and wear our favorite sneakers. All clothing for Red Ribbon week must be Greenville County Schools dress code appropriate. Remember, You Only Live Once, so stay drug free!
Making High School Decisions
8th grade parents, as you make plans to visit high schools and eventually choose the one your child will attend, Fisher would like to help you in any way possible. Our 8th grade counselor, Mrs. Kirby, will be posting information on her website about upcoming high school and magnet program Open Houses, and these will also be listed on the Fisher calendar.
Mrs. Kirby will be assisting students with registering for high school classes, so it would be very helpful to her to know which school/s your child is interested in. Please fill out this form so that she can better serve your needs. Please contact her at 864-452-0811 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
