Supporting our Students During Ramadan

We are approaching the holy month of Ramadan ( Ramadan 2021: Sundown on Tuesday April 13 – sundown on Wednesday, May 12, 2021) for our Muslim students and staff. Ramadan commemorates the revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad (according to Muslim tradition). During Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink from dawn to sunset, and the month culminates with a holiday called Eid al-Fitr, a three-day celebration that involves praying, visiting relatives, exchanging gifts, remembering deceased loved ones and helping those experiencing poverty. Children are not required to fast until they reach puberty, but some do choose to fast regardless of their age. The last 10 days of Ramadan involve intense religious devotion, which may contribute to absence from school.

Here are some helpful resources to learn more about Ramadan:

Theatre Presents "Got Rights?" Monologues

Ferndale High School’s Student Enterprise Theatre’s original production, “Got Rights?”, is now available to watch online, starting Friday, Feb. 5, on our YouTube channel.

“Got Rights?” is a collection of monologues from 13 plays and one historical speech. Twelve FHS students rehearsed individually with director Kelly Komlen over Zoom for several weeks and video-recorded each part on the high school stage on a recent Sunday. 

The production includes portions from “What the Constitution Means to Me,” a play by Heidi Schreck that ran on Broadway in 2019. Also included are excerpts from “To Kill A Mockingbird,” a play adapted by Aaron Sorkin from Harper Lee’s novel, “Fun Home” by Lisa Kron, “The Ecclesiazuæ” by Aristophanes–to name a few–plus a speech by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

Because the performance is online only, tickets are not being sold. Viewers instead are invited to make donations to one of the following:
