Those activities include Fallfest, visiting senior citizens, cleaning East End Park, and raising money for local food banks.
A full range of student support technology and services including audio enhanced classrooms, computers and smart boards, reading and mathematics assistance, speech and language, and special education services are provided at Ferry. In addition, the district Voyager School, a multi-age Reggio Inspired School, is housed at Ferry. Classroom learning through creative use of textbooks, technology-assisted learning, and hands-on experiences meets the individual needs of all children.
