Ferris Parent Involvement

  • Ham on Regal

    Ham on Regal is an original musical/comedy show written and performed by Ferris High School parents and school staff. This unique fundraiser enables the Ferris Parent Teacher Group (PTG) to allocate proceeds from the show to various activities including: academics, athletics, administrative and supply needs to classrooms, teachers and students. 

    Each April, Ferris parents begin the process of creating a show for the following year. They write an original script, select music, and choreograph specialty dances and the General Chorus numbers. Parents work on set design, props, tickets, costumes, advertising and more. More than 300 parents and Ferris staff put in thousands of volunteer hours each year, and have loads of fun creating a unique entertainment event for our audiences.

  • Ferris Music Parents Association (F.M.P.A.)

    Ferris Music Parents Association (FMPA) is made up of the parents and guardians of all students participating in Orchestra, Band and Choral Music Programs at Ferris. We are a non-profit charitable organization whose goal is to provide volunteer and monetary support to these programs beyond what the School District provides so that the students may participate in as many activities as possible to further their music education. To that end, FMPA provides students with fundraising opportunities to pay for travel and other expenses not covered by the School District.
    All parents and guardians of music students are invited to attend FMPA meetings. FMPA is a great way to get involved in the Ferris community. We have talented directors and young people who can use your support in keeping this wonderful award winning music program growing and alive!
