More than 600 staff, family, and friends of the Fiske School Fifth Grade were treated to a delicious spaghetti supper served by fifth graders on Thursday evening January 16th.
Among the guests were Dr. Paul B. Ash, Lexington Superintendent of Schools, and Margaret Coppe, Lexington School Committee Chair. The Fiske gym was transformed into an Italian restaurant as the fifth graders, bedecked in black and white outfits, proudly took orders and served their family members, teachers, and friends.
This much-anticipated event provided the students with an opportunity for team building and bonding before they move on to Diamond Middle School next year. Proceeds will be used to help fund a variety of fifth grade activities.
The Fiske community would like to thank the following organizations for their generosity and help in making this year’s Spaghetti Supper such an enormous success.
The following businesses donated food and beverages: Mario’s, Neillio’s Gourmet Kitchen, Pepsi Beverages Company, Polar Beverages, Sunny Delight Beverages Company, Stop and Shop Lexington, Trader Joe’s, and Market Basket. The Microsoft Store, Burlington Mall, assisted with the purchase of the raffle prize, a Microsoft Surface RT Tablet. We encourage the community to give its support to these generous donors.
Special thanks are extended to all of the Fiske families and staff who worked at and attended the Spaghetti Supper. It was through everyone’s support that the fifth graders were able to achieve such success with this important fundraising event!
