Texas Roadhouse "Fun"draiser

Raise money for Fishers Junior High while getting some holiday shopping done! Students will sell $25 Texas Roadhouse gift cards for $30. For each gift card purchased, the buyer will receive six free appetizer cards (valued at $6.99 each), and our school will receive $7.50. When we meet our goal of selling 5,000 gift cards, Texas Roadhouse will donate 15% back rather than 10%. A letter with the details, along with an order form, was sent home with your student last Friday. The order form and details are also below.

Snack Attack

Fishers Youth Assistance Program is pleased to offer Snack Attack again this school year and continue to support students in HSE Schools. For those unfamiliar, Snack Attack is a simple program designed to help students needing a little extra nourishment to get them through the weekend until they can receive a hot meal at school on Monday. There is no cost to the family or to the school, families just need to opt into the service. All students in need are welcome to participate.

Snack Attack bags are unmarked brown bags filled with ten snacks for junior high students that are picked up in the Guidance Office each Friday. Snacks are individually wrapped snacks such as granola bars, fruit cups, pop tarts, or peanut butter/crackers, Goldfish crackers, etc. The type of snacks will vary each week. If a child has a peanut allergy, he/she will receive a special white bag of peanut-free snacks.

If you would like to opt into this program, please email Mrs. Broughton (kbroughton@hse.k12.in.us) with your student(s) name and grade. Please also include if there is a peanut allergy.


If you would like to donate to the Fishers Youth Assistance Snack Attack program, donations may be dropped off at the front office or by sending in with your student. Monetary donations to Fishers Youth Assistance may be made by clicking on the link below:

Turtoring Club

Students at Fishers High School have graciously offered their time to tutor FJH students who need a little extra help academically. Tutoring will happen every Thursday starting October 14th from 4-5pm in the FJH media center. Students will be placed into small groups of 2-3 students per high school tutor. All participating students must be picked up promptly at 5:00.


In order to participate, your student must sign up at least 24 hours in advance by filling out the Microsoft form that can be found on their school counselor's canvas page. This will be on a first come, first serve basis. Students must come prepared with something specific to work on (homework assignment, project piece, concept you don't understand etc,). If you have any questions, please email Mrs. O'Neill at kgal@hse.k12.in.us.

Virtual Option

Hamilton Southeastern Schools has a partnered with Indiana Online Academy (IOA) to offer a virtual option for students in grades 7-12 who cannot be in an in-person learning environment. Students who attend virtually are instructed via live, scheduled Zoom calls with IOA staff for core classes and work asynchronously in non-core/elective courses. Students are not permitted to participate in any in-person school club, team, or event if enrolled in IOA but may participate virtually if a virtual option exists. Students are still required to come in-person to their home school to participate in state standardized testing (ILEARN, WIDA, SAT, ISTEP, etc.). We are opening registration for students who are currently in-person and wishing to switch to virtual for second semester (beginning in January). If you would like to sign your student up, please complete the brief registration form. Registration will close on Tuesday, November 23rd. Registration link: https://forms.office.com/r/g0T81cXdbE

Note from the Cafeteria

A traditional Thanksgiving meal will be served on Wednesday, 11/17 in the FJH cafeteria. We will serve each student turkey, stuffing, green beans, mashed potato, a roll, a fruit cup and pumpkin pie.


We continue to navigate the supply-chain issues with food items on the lunch menu. I will tweet the days menu every morning by 7am. Follow us @fjhcafe We do our very best every day to put together a great lunch for our students!
