From Principal/Superintendent Karen Goodwin, “Fishers Island School’s elementary students in grades PreK-6 attended the most recent senior lunch where they sang holiday carols to our island community members. Our senior citizens were very grateful for the holiday cheer. Congratulations to all of our elementary school students! Special thanks to Kapri Thomas for running practice sessions for the students and accompanying them on the piano!” Photos c/o Patty Faulkner
