The 4th Tuesday of every month is a Roger's PTA fundraiser. Fernan will earn 20% of your total receipt. We have vouchers in the office if you're interested.

UGM Tree

There is a tree by the office with ornaments dedicated to fulfilling needs that United Gospel Mission has specified.

Directions for the donation tags:

  1. The items needed are listed on individual tags/ornaments.

  2. Once purchased, tape the tag to the gift somewhere that is visible.

  3. Bring the purchased item UNWRAPPED back to Fernan STEM Academy and place it under the tree by Dec. 16th.

Thank you for giving back to our wonderful community. It is truly appreciated.
