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.
Ferndale Upper Elementary participated in their annual Lymphoma and Leukemia campaign again this year. In 2017-2018, FUEL students and families raised $5,200. This year, they beat their goal and raised $5,800 during the month of February! This money will help the families of children with blood cancer by providing them transportation, treatment, and counseling. The FUEL students had so much fun raising money for LLS. They participated in various spirit days and even collected money by duct taping their principal, Katie Jeffrey, to the wall during lunch.
Thank you to Bigalora in Royal Oak for hosting a fundraiser night to support this amazing cause. FUEL is so grateful for all of the wonderful Ferndale Families for supporting their children in raising funds. This is always such a special event for the FUEL students to learn more about compassion and generosity.
FUEL was awarded the Evergreen title, the highest award for participating in the Green School program. It is our eleventh year in the countywide program. At our building we participate in many activities that help make our world a better place such as recycling many different items, creating gardens for learning and growing fruit/vegetables, and educating ourselves and our families about energy.
Our Green Team, which consists of third and fourth graders: Cal, Tommy, Julia, and Corrina help to run many of the daily operations. We will be attending the annual award ceremony this year, which will be held at the Detroit Zoo for the first time. At the ceremony we will learn about the many ways the zoo helps to keep the environment "Green" as well.
