After School STEAM Workshops

Starting Tuesday, April 20 and ending Thursday, May 27, Fisher will host STEAM workshops every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 - 4:30 pm. Each week, students will hear from leaders in the industries of Video Gaming and Computer Science Technology. If you have ever considered a career in these fields, you will want to join us. There will be workshops on College Planning, Financial Aid & Financial Literacy, Video Game Development & Concepts, Broadcasting, AR/VR, and the Keys To Success in the Gaming and Esports industry. Ladies, have you thought about what it might be like to have a career in computer science? There are also several unique courses designed specifically for you.

Dress Code

Please ensure that your student is maintaining dress code expectations at all times. Sweat pants, leggings, and blue jeans are not part of our daily expected dress code. As we are now in 4th Quarter there is very little that should be unclear about our daily expectations for dress at Fisher.

We provide a number of dress down day opportunities for our students so students can wear their favorite attire. Dress down days may be assigned your child's team of teachers or by administration. Either way, an adult should signify that your child is having a dress down day. It is VERY unlikely that we will announce a dress down day via SnapChat or TikTok but you can check our website or Facebook page for any dress down day opportunities.

Our specific dress code is linked below.
