PLA@George H. Fisher School 93
Greetings PLA Families,
We would like to thank all of our scholars and families that were able to attend our annual fall festival last night. Everyone seemed to have a great time. Our next family event will take place in January. We are already looking forward to welcoming everyone back into school.
Happy Thanksgiving! As a reminder, next week is a short week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Scholars will attend a full day on Monday and will then have early dismissal (11:20) on Tuesday. Thanksgiving break is from Wednesday, November 22-24.
We would also like to thank our families for supporting our book fair this past week. Money from the book fair is used to support our school and funds the purchase of more books for our library.
Our community spotlight this week is Gleaners Food Bank. More information can be found below.
If you have questions regarding your child's bus transportation, please call IPS at 317-226-4000.
