Dine Out Fundraisers

Thanks to many local restaurants including Chipotles, Crouching Tiger, Villa Lucia, Canyon Inn and our latest, Sancho’s Taqueria who generously donated 15% of total sales including non Henry Ford patrons! Please note during this time, these restaurants are open for take out and some for delivery. We hope you can support them and feed your families as they have so graciously supported us!

Homework Technology Support Wanted!

Do you have a used Chromebook you would be willing to donate to a family in need? No child should be doing their homework on a cellphone. Please contact the Henry Ford office if you are able to help.

Message from the PTA about Pasta Dinner event

Hello Mustang Families! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this time.

We are very sad to have to cancel our annual Pasta Dinner event, but since our team has already collected many great items from local businesses, we will still have our online auction.

The money raised is so important in helping the PTA fund essential programs and enrichment opportunities like PE, Reading Specialists, Art, Field Trips and so much more. Please consider participating in the auction or making a donation of the money you would have spent attending the event.

When will it be?

The auction will run from Sunday, May 10 – Friday, May 15 at 8pm.

How will it work?

We will email you the auction link and all transactions will be done online using a credit/debit card.

After the event, our team will drop off any items you have purchased on your doorstep (wearing masks and gloves of course).

Henry Ford PTA’s Online Auction is now LIVE! Ends Friday, May 15th at 8pm. Check it out now!

Bid on amazing items and experiences, many donated from local businesses. Though this year the event looks very different, the money raised still goes towards school programs that are important to students and families.

Does your child love PE, Art, Project Cornerstone, MakerSpace or Field Trips? The PTA funds all of these programs plus more like Reading Intervention Specialists so students don’t fall further behind and Classroom Supplies to supplement teachers’ needs. This is thanks to the thoughtful giving of our Mustang families. Let’s continue to fill the gap of budget shortfalls and together provide the best educational experience for our children.

Have fun bidding and thank you for supporting Henry Ford!

At Home Kid Activities



The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2020 (also known as the “split roll” initiative), will raise approximately $12 billion in annual funds for public education, local governments and community services by reassessing and taxing certain commercial properties at current market value. The initiative will appear on the November 2020 statewide ballot if it gets enough signatures to qualify by April 14.

We urge you to sign the petition, which you can do by clicking here. The campaign is also seeking volunteers to help collect signatures. Click here to volunteer.
