It's time for the 2nd Annual Ferri Fundrive.

Before you put the bags of toys, gifts you'll never use, and outgrown clothes by the curb, consider donating them to the Ferri Fundrive. The Ferri PTSO, in conjunction with Savers, will be collecting donations on April 19 & 22 between 10am and 2pm. Do your part to go green while helping the school make a little green. Check out the attached flyer and turn your trash into treasure! Last year we raised over $250 for the school and this year can be even better with your participation.
