    Good Day Fifer Families

    Thank you all!!
    This certainly was a different school year.  At times it was super hard (and every one had a different hard).  But together we did persevere and we did it! 
    Good-bye school year 2020-2021!

    For our Rising 9th graders… you will be missed!  We believe in each and every one of you.  We look forward to running into you in the future to find out all the great things you have accomplished!  Until!

    --Outdoor sporting events, especially those on Marker’s Field, we ask spectators to park in the back parking lot of Fifer Middle School versus along the road by the field. We have a lot of spectators walking across the street and visibility is an issue. We need to keep our students and community safe.
