Seeking winterwear donations for 4th grade camp


This year’s 4th Grade Camp will take place in February.  While February is great for sledding, ice fishing and all the other fun activities that are planned, it requires appropriate clothing.

As your students begin to outgrow their snow gear (boots, coats, snowpants, hats, gloves, and scarves), please consider donating it to be used for 4th Grade Camp.  We want to be sure all of our 4th Grade Campers are well-prepared!

Please contact Adrianne Quinn at
or (248) 722-2131 to arrange a donation!  Thank you!

FUEL Earns MCACA Grant

Students in two of the Ferndale Upper Elementary (FUEL’s) special education programs are the recipient of a $6,300 grant from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA).

This grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of 559 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year funding. It is exciting to have them selected for this wonderful opportunity!

5th Graders Mentor Kindergartners

Last week, Margaret Watson’s fifth grade class had their first meeting with D'anne McNeil's kindergarten class.  The students from the two classes will meet every two weeks and perform activities that will benefit both age groups.  This week, the older kids walked to the Lower Elementary school, met their new friends and completed a venn diagram focusing on the similarities and differences of the two classrooms.
