Volunteer Needs

  • Be on the lookout for Pasta Dinner signup sheets after Spring Break. We need lots of helpers to make this event a success.

Going forward, it will be easy to find many school volunteer opportunities. Just go to whenever you have availability.

Direct Donation Drive

Our school relies on contributions from families like yours to pay for programs that enrich the learning experience for all Henry Ford Mustangs. For the 2016-17 academic year, a full student contribution is $150. While we prefer a full annual contribution, any amount is gratefully accepted.


Families who donate the full contribution and/or sponsor a program can choose to receive a Henry Ford Mustang tee shirt (child) AND be featured on our website!


Website Makeover

Sharp-eyed folks may have noticed that our website has had a spring makeover! Go check it out and share your feedback. You’ll find lots of info including:

  • This Week (newsletter) blog

  • School events calendar
  • Fundraising event info
  • Spiritwear shop – We need models so please meet Tracy outside the office on Thursday @1:30 if you & your student are ready to smile
