In addition to activities directly sponsored by its Board of Directors, the FAB also has several committees that focus on supporting specific fine arts programs in the district.
Band-Aid : Formed in 2011, this committee focuses on raising funds to support the entire 5th - 12th grade Ferndale Schools band program. For more information on this group and how you can get involved, contact FHS Band Director Elon Jamison .
OrchSupport : In 2009, Ferndale Orchestra Teacher Ben Moy and a group of dedicated parents established the OrchSupport Committee. Their mission is to provide financial and volunteer support for the development, enrichment, enhancement and inclusion of students in the Ferndale Schools Orchestra Program. The group accomplished its first goal of raising funds to purchase a set of electronic string instruments.
Marching Band : A long-standing FAB committee, this group provides volunteer and financial support to the award-winning FHS Marching Band. This past year, in addition to its many regular fund raisers, the Committee added the very successful Dinner and a Show event that raffled off a gourmet dinner for 10 with special Marching Band performance from the FHS stadium press box.
Visual Arts Aid: Formed in the fall of 2010, this FAB committee is focused on raising funds to support the District's visual arts and dance programs. One of its first goals was to purchase a new kiln for the high school to replace the old, unreliable ones it had at the time. The group succeeded in this effort and is now working to address additional art and dance program needs. Its main fundraiser is the DIY 5K/1Mile Fun Run, held each fall in conjunction with the DIY Street Fair in downtown Ferndale.
