The Fisher-GCMS Soccer Boosters are selling Cinnamon Rolls, Dinner Rolls, and Pumpkin Butter in their latest efforts to raise money to offset the cost of a playing field for our High School Soccer Team. The rolls are handmade at the Homestead Bakery in Arthur, IL, and will be ready for pick up just in time for Easter. Orders can be placed here: https://form.jotform.com/240446800946155 or by scanning the QR code in the attached image. Orders will be accepted until 10 p.m. on March 14 and available for pick up at the FISHER High School Cafeteria from 3- 6 p.m. on March 28. For the past 10 seasons, our record-breaking soccer team has played on ground lent to us by the Village of Fisher which also doubles as a parking lot during the Fisher Fair (which can cause extensive damage to the playing field). With the addition of a softball field nearby, they will soon be unable to use the current field, thus creating the need for a permanent home for the team on Fisher School-owned ground by the 2025-26 season. These fundraising efforts will supplement the cost of the field and additional equipment that will be needed. Fisher Schools is also contributing. The Fisher-GCMS Soccer team consists of over 40 athletes from both schools. The 2023-24 team boasted a record season with 21 wins and only 3 losses. The wins go beyond the pitch (field), with this program helping to create outstanding young men and women through the hard work and discipline expected from them by their coaches and communities. Thank you in advance for your support. Our athletes thank you too!

This is what it is all about! A message from your opponent when the stakes are high like this shows that the game result is a small part of the "why" and even in the challenges of defeat you can win! "Jeremy, I wanted to congratulate your high school girls basketball team on a great season. Last night's game was as close a game as I have seen for a very long time. The result of the game could have very easily been the other way. Your girls, coaches, and fans showed real class throughout and following the game. Your school and community are excellent role models for sportsmanship. Congrats again. Dan -- Daniel S. Hylbert, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools Cissna Park C.U.S.D. # 6" FALCON PROUD!!! - Mr. Darnell
