SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming up March 12 – 16, and we could use some help from parents. If you are willing to spend 75 minutes to serve as a floater, someone who works to straighten shelves, acts as door security, and helps students find books, or if you are willing to staff the cash register, you will be welcomed with open arms. Please sign up here.
FAMILY DODGEBALL NIGHT
Henry Ford invites you to a Family Dodgeball Night on Saturday, March 24th, 2018, 4:45 – 6:30 PM at the SportsHouse, 3151 Edison Way, RWC. Tickets are $20/couple or $25/family but buy tickets in advance as space is limited!
Because SportsHouse will need a head count and a signed waiver, please let us know who will be attending and the children’s ages. You can complete your waiver by visiting the SportsHouse website. Fill out the form on the blue paper sent home last Thursday and return to teacher with payment. Because we pay SportsHouse per person, adults must pay for admittance even if they don’t participate.
Come on out and have fun with other Henry Ford Families!
Connect with other Parents
All parents & caretakers are invited to join their classrooms’ group chats to stay in touch with others in their classroom through text, email, or the Remind app. You choose! It’s so handy for playdates, missed assignments, field trips, etc.
Text @fordinfo to the number 81010 or click remind.com/join/fordinfo and then message the PTA for further instructions.
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 2017-18 academic year, a full student contribution is $200. While we prefer a full annual contribution, any amount is gratefully accepted. We also have a new monthly installments program at http://henryfordpta.org/donate/
