FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK
Dear Fisher Families,

Welcome to summer! It is hard to believe that this year is coming to a close. It seems that it was both the longest and shortest school year ever. With all the changes and challenges, your patience, support and kindness are greatly appreciated.  

I am grateful to be a part of the Fisher family and the Los Gatos Union School District. I have been graciously welcomed in by all and feel supported and included. Knowing that our year will start in August with a full and robust schedule is very exciting and wonderful.  

A few of our staff members will be moving on and we wish them well. I would like to especially thank Señora Grace Donatelli Sordo. She is retiring from a long, successful career in education. She has been an integral part of the Fisher family and will be missed. We wish her well in her retirement.  

I hope each of you has a wonderful and restful summer. We look forward to a great year, starting on August 12th with Camp Trojan for all! It will be a fun reset to the school year and start us on a path for success.

Take care and stay well.

Mary Lonhart, Principal 
PE UNIFORMS FOR RISING
6TH, 7TH AND 8TH GRADERS
Greetings Fisher Families!

The Fisher Physical Education department is excited to announce that we can now offer pre-order using credit cards for your physical education uniform needs. We have a webstore that will be open all summer and close on Monday, August 9th, so orders can be filled and ready. After August 9th, only cash or checks will be accepted. The webstore is set to have pick-up as your only option. We will fill the orders here on-site at Fisher. All orders will be ready for pick up the first weeks of school in August (more info to come). We will continue to have onsite orders and purchases, but this will be CASH or CHECK only. Due to the large number of students needing to purchase physical education uniforms, we want to help speed up the process for all.

When ordering you will receive a confirmation email that you will show upon pick up. As the dates come closer more information will be available.

Required for Physical Education:
  • Shirt
  • Shorts or optional Leggings
  • Special combo lock has to be V606 (we have used locks onsite on a first come first serve basis)

There are sizing charts on the website for reference. Kids will grow over the summer so order a little larger than they are now. You can always exchange clothing as long as it is not worn or written on.

Any families needing financial assistance please contact Melissa Weiss, Physical Education Department Chairperson OR your student’s PE teacher.

Visit our webstore via the link below to purchase your student's supplies now.
