The latest FPS Curriculum Quarterly is now available. Our Curriculum & Instruction Department will be releasing a new issue 4 times a year that will briefly highlight areas of teaching and learning in Ferndale Public Schools. We look forward to sharing our programming overviews with you. If you have questions, please contact Johanna Mracna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This issue focuses on our science learning goals and methods, presented by grade ranges. Please take a look, and stay tuned for future issues introducing our other pillars of education.
Every year, we present the annual state of the district. To celebrate some of the innovations and adaptations we have developed during building closures, we are presenting the State of the District as a series of short videos, available for asynchronous viewing.
Each weeknight at 6:00 pm, we will reveal a new mixtape, which can be viewed altogether or clicked through in any order.
