Donate to Ferndale Schools
Donating to your local school district is a great way to support the community. Here are some of the programs started by our friends and neighbors that would greatly appreciate your support.
The Ferndale Literacy Project helps fund reading intervention and support for Ferndale Schools students, helping to improve their reading skills, which in turn, will help them with all subjects.
All proceeds go to support the many K-12 programs, performance needs and activities the FAB sponsors. These include classroom enhancement funds, concert dress, uniform and equipment needs and program support for Art, Dance, Orchestra, Choir, Bands, Drumline, and our State Champion Marching Band.
Roger Smith is a Ferndale alumnus and served Ferndale Public Schools for 32 years–as Music Teacher, Assistant Principal, and High School Principal–before retiring in 2017. This annual scholarship will be available to 9th-11th grade students–currently enrolled in band, choir, or orchestra–to pursue advancement in the musical arts.
A number of our students are at risk of being forgotten this holiday season. Currently Ferndale Schools has more than 20 students enrolled in our McKinney-Vento program. The McKinney-Vento Program, more commonly referred to as the "homeless" program, is designed to assist students and their families who lack "firm, fixed, and regular housing". Every year, we do our best to ensure these students and their families can enjoy the holidays. This year we are hoping to raise enough funds to provide each family with a $100 gift card that can be used to purchase gifts for these students. Payments can be made through PaySchools or via check, made out to "Ferndale Public Schools" with "students in need" in the memo line.
