From the Principal...Kristy McKnight

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July and has been enjoying their summer! My family and I just got back from a road trip out to Montana. While the drive home wasn't my favorite, our time spent out there was amazing! It definitely gave me a chance to relax and see some gorgeous scenery.

We have over 100 families who have not yet completed their returning student registration. If you haven't completed your registration, please do so asap. If you aren't planning on returning to Ferson, please let us know that as well. Registration directions and links can be found here. Fees were just assessed on July 1st, so that can now be completed through PushCoin.

If you need to visit Ferson over the summer, please give the office a call first at 331-228-2300. There will be times where the office may be closed and it would be best to confirm we are open prior to your arrival.

Below are a few updates, events, and school supply ordering information.

Have a great day,
Kristy McKnight
