Kindergarten -5th Grade, Registration for Fall 2020-2021

Kindergarten Enrollment

We are excited to once again welcome kindergarten back to Fernwood for the 2020-2021 school year. To enter kindergarten, your student must be five years old on or before August 31. Please visit the NSD Kindergarten page for full details and how to enroll online. Even though our building is closed, registrations can still take place!

1st-5th Enrollment

Northshore is using an online enrollment process for the 2020-21 school year. Please use the following link to enroll your 1st-5th grade student.

 Please noteIf your student is already entered or has previously enrolled within the Northshore School District (from any enrollment or referral for services from Northshore in the past), please do not use the online enrollment system. This would create duplicate parent and student records. If that is the case, or if you are uncertain, please contact Carla Gamman, Secretary/Registrar at Fernwood, for assistance to complete enrollment now. Thank you!

We will host Parent/Guardian Questions & Answers sessions Tuesday, June 9th. This session will take place at 6pm. The session will include a virtual tour of Fernwood, general information about our mission and goals for students, and will provide time to answer your questions to the best of our ability.

Hello Fernwood Students –

Our PTSA is looking for a new T-shirt design for next school year and we decided who better to help us come up with ideas than our fabulous artists of Fernwood. Unlike the design for the yearbook we need something simple that can be printed on a t-shirt or sweatshirt.  We have a few examples from previous years.   Please email Sbhutchison@gmail.com  SUBJECT: SPIRIT WEAR if you have any ideas or to submit a design idea. 


  1. Must include: Safe, Kind, Learner
