March 12-16, 2018 is Education Support Professionals Week

This week is Education Support Professionals Week. Each and every day, but especially this week, we honor and thank our dedicated men and women who play critical roles in our school district.


Ferndale has approximately 363 support staff—administrative assistants, food service workers, educational assistants, custodians, maintenance workers, bus drivers and others who keep our schools and district operating smoothly.


These Ferndale Team members work directly with our children, staff, parents, business partners, volunteers and community members. Their responsibilities include: assisting teachers in direct instruction with students, providing safe transportation to and from school, serving nutritious meals, ensuring buildings and grounds are safe and clean, assisting staff with human resource needs, and preparing and filing necessary paperwork and reports for district operations.


We ask our Ferndale Community to join in this week's observance by recognizing the dedication and hard work of our support staff!
