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.


The Henry Ford PTA hopes this message finds our families well. We are all saddened by the announcement that school will not return this year as we miss the teachers, students and families.

This does mean that our wonderful Pasta Dinner event is canceled. But with our mighty Mustang spirit we will continue with an online auction. The online auction will be similar to what we’ve done every year except that everything will now be online. The committee has been working so hard since the beginning of the year on procuring generous donations of experiences and items. Stay tuned for more information to follow in the coming weeks.

The money raised throughout the school year goes to fund so many important essential programs and enrichment opportunities like PE, Intervention/Reading Specialists, Field Trips, Assemblies, Art in Action, Project Cornerstone, Makerspace and Classroom supplies.

We entered the school year uncertain about covering all of the school’s needs. But thanks to all the families for their participation in events, fundraisers, and direct donations, all school programs and activities have been fully funded. This plus the auction will tremendously help the PTA to continue funding school programs and help cover school needs in the future as we enter another uncertain year.

Wishing everyone is safe and healthy.
The Henry Ford PTA

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.
