Author Visit

A very special thank you to Ms. Casterline, Mrs. Baker and Mrs. Culang for making our Author visit a special day for our students. A shout out to our HSA for funding the visit.

The students enjoyed the assembly programs as they learned what it takes to be an author and illustrator from nationally and internationally known author/illustrator John Steven Gurney.

2nd Grade Reading Olympics

Our 2nd graders will be competing against the Miller second graders on Thursday, June 2nd. Here the students can be seen practicing for the event.

Come out this evening at 7:00 PM to the Poquessing auditorium to see our 3rd and 4th grade instrumental students perform. Both our band and orchestra students will be performing. It's sure to be a special evening showcasing the talented students of Ferderbar.

Please join us Monday, May 23rd for our Choral Concert. The Choral Concert will be held at 7:00 PM in the Poquessing auditorium.


The Administration at Poquessing is asking the following of our community...

Please do NOT pull into Poquessing Middle School parking lot until after all of their busses have left the lot at 3:05 PM. Our parents are blocking the entrance. Vehicles needing to enter the Poquessing lot cannot do so because of this.

4th Grade Move Up Ceremony

Parents/Guardians of our 4th grade students-please mark your calendars. The Move Up ceremony will take place on Wednesday, June 15th at 10:30 AM in the Ferderbar café. A pizza lunch will be provided for the students ONLY after the ceremony. This will be a casual event in that the teachers will be asking the students to wear their Ferderbar Tee Shirts to show their school spirit.

Energy and Security Upgrade

Ferderbar will be receiving an energy upgrade starting on June 20th. Much of Ferderbar will resemble a construction site both inside and out. As of that date please call the building first if you need to stop by as many days the office will be closed and the office staff will be working out of another building.

Science Fair

We have over 40 students participating in this year's Science Fair. Participants are asked to bring their project to school on Wednesday, May 25th. We will be setting up in the cafeteria in the afternoon for the evening fair. Please make sure that everything is labeled. The Fair will take place from 6:00-8:00 PM that evening in the cafe. Radioactive Rick, from Mad Science will be here for a demonstration at 7:15 PM.

Chaperone Parking for Trips

Please be aware that there are no extra parking spaces in the Ferderbar lot due to construction. Parking may be available in the back of Poquessing. We encourage parent chaperones to carpool to school with one another if possible.

Parents cannot park in the front lot/visitor parking/reserved parking/bus lane.

Thank you!

Grade 1 Trip to the Circus is tomorrow. On Thursday, May 26th our second graders will be boarding buses for the Philadelphia Zoo.
