Ferndale Middle School News
We have an extra fun e-blast to lead into the long weekend. This issue includes Middle School honors, robotics leaders, poets on the street (literally), and a live sheep!
The City of Ferndale declared April 16th, 2019 as “Education and Sharing” day! Education and Sharing Day will honor the legacy of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Rabbi Schneerson believed in the potential of all persons and sought to empower young people through education, character development, and civic pride.
Rabbi Herschel Finman stopped by to visit Ferndale Schools Superintendent Dania Bazzi and share the good news about the proclamation.

The Ferndale High School Winter Guard are state champs for the second consecutive year. A huge thank you goes out to Coach Batsios and Coach McKenzie for leading our students to another victory. The Winter Guard also finished with a perfect season, finishing first in all 3 regular season competitions. Congratulations!

Robotics rolls forward, winterguard wins again, a musician plays masterfully, a Ferndale fireman reads to friends, and more. Happy Friday!
Outstanding students made the news this week in orchestra, marketing, and robotics. A principal was taped to the wall...for a good cause. And so much more.
The Ferndale Middle 7th and 8th Grade Band had an outstanding performance at the MSBOA District 4 Band and Orchestra Festival.

Representing the bands were:

Champions abound in this eblast: from academics at FMS and basketball players at FHS to Winterguardians and a wrestler with plenty of musicians and ecologists in between. Students get hands-on experience in the trades, tutoring opportunities, and an invitation to meet a family of the strangest sort.
Congratulations to our FMS & FHS Orchestras for their festival performances!
The 7th & 8th grade received an overall score of 2 (with a 1 in sight reading) and the high school received all 1s (the scale is 1-5 with 1 being the highest).
