Ferndale Middle School News
Ferndale School Family is looking for volunteers to be part of the District Wellness Committee. The committee will support our new Strategic Plan goal to examine, motivate, and ensure physical, mental and nutritional health and overall wellness for our entire school family. This committee will be comprised of families, community members, secondary students, and staff members. If this is of interest to you, please email Dina Rocheleau at Dina.Rocheleau@ferndaleschools.org.
Our first meeting will take place on March 23 at 4:00 pm, Ferndale High School, Room 333. Once the team meets, we will make a collective decision on what dates and times work best for the team.
The robot is complete! (for the most part). We still have a few kinks we need to work out, but it is in working condition. The drive team is practicing driving and shooting with the robot. The programming team is working on autonomous, which is the first 15 seconds of the match where the robot drives on its own using code.
Their first two competitions are coming up later this month, and are free to attend. Please come out and show your support!

We are so excited to share that, this year, Ferndale Schools will be moving to a new communication platform called “Q Communication.” This new platform will encompass all school-to-family communication. This new system will allow families to view communication from all of your students in a single dashboard. Q Communication is also embedded within MiStar, which will allow for a seamless experience for our parents. Now, with a single log-in, parents can access all district, school, and classroom announcements in one place!
