To participate, you decide on your time and route – and then walk around your neighborhood.  The suggested pledge is $1 per minute.

Submit your pictures to school@saintferdinand.org throughout the day to be posted on Facebook – we will “virtually” walk together this way.

Friday, May 1 – Family Fun Night Drive Through Parade

This Friday, May 1, will be our first Ferdinand Friday Family Fun Night with a Car Parade!

This will take place from  6:00PM – 7:00PM in the School Parking Lot.

You will enter the parking lot through the gates at Marmora, and then follow the route for drive-by greetings!   This is a great way to see each other from a safe distance.    (In order to keep the flow of traffic and safety for everyone present, we ask that you do not pull over and do not get out of your car.)

See you there!
