Big picture

Susan Nipp, local author of Mudgy & Millie, and Ann Smart from the Cd'A Library Foundation, came to visit Fernan. We sang, learned about being an author, and received free books for all of our K-2nd grade students. Thank you!

If you are interesting in supporting the Mudgy & Millie assemblies, and donating to the Cd'A Public Library Foundation, here's more information:

Crosswalks: Thank you for keeping our children safe by using the crosswalks. We appreciate you!

We know it can be inconvenient, but with our icy roads, our whole focus is on student and family safety. Thank you, and please let us know if you have any questions.

Join us for Fernan's Chief Night! Only $10! (and $2 from each ticket goes back to Fernan!)

We are looking for some snack donations for our students.

We have students in need of a 'nutrition boost' throughout the day. We'd love donations of snacks, such as fig bars, granola bars, pretzels, crackers and fruit snacks. These snacks can be dropped off at the office. Thanks in advance!

Calling all 3rd-5th Graders! Come join Fernan's Marimba Ensemble!

Meets Tuesdays at 8 am. Please contact Aaron Hayes for more information.
