Centennial Celebration

East Ferris turns 100 years old and we have a big year planned! There will be a variety of activities and events for all ages to celebrate our centennial. Please keep in mind that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is possible that some of the events may be changed or cancelled. Our centennial celebrations will occur in a capacity that is safe for everyone.

This page will be updated regularly with event information.
