Hello Ferndale Family,

I hope you're all having a JOYful start to the school year and savoring the last moments of summer. Today marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month, and our Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment team has curated a wonderful list of resources for our school community to commemorate the contributions of Hispanic Americans to our nation's rich tapestry. Please be sure to visit our resource page.  Here at Ferndale Schools, celebrating the diversity of our community remains a core commitment. 

Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending the FUEL Curriculum Night, where I had the chance to connect with many caregivers and students. These interactions are always a highlight for me, and I look forward to further engagement at upcoming school events.

While we strive to maintain open and effective communication with our school community, we recognize that there may be times when concerns or inquiries do not receive a timely response. In such cases, it is crucial to reach out to our building administrators and, if necessary, to me at Clear lines of communication ensure that we can address all concerns and issues promptly, fostering a positive and supportive environment for our students and their families. Community engagement is community empowerment - this is your school district and we are here for YOU. 

I'm enthusiastic about serving our community, prepared for the rewarding work ahead, and uplifted by the profound joy radiating from our students' faces, as well as the unwavering support our schools receive from the community. Together, we can make this academic year a memorable and successful one.

I hope to see you all Monday at our facilities focused Coffee with Cabinet in the Nest at FHS at 6 p.m.

Joyfully an Eagle!

Dr. Bobbie
