STAFF APPRECIATION BREAKFAST
Our next Staff Breakfast will be on February 28th! Please bring breakfast goodies, juice, and coffee for Henry Ford teachers and staff (totaling ~60 hard-working folks). Email Becky Foutch if you need to make arrangements to bring something the day before. Spread the word, and thanks for all the support!
Sign up here.
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.
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/

PASTA DINNER PREVIEW
The Pasta Dinner Carnival and Auction is coming on May 18 and is the most important fundraiser of the year. Money raised from this event is used to help pay for art, field trips, PE, and technology for your child. A committee of parent volunteers is hard at work trying to get donations from businesses so we can put them in the online auction or in one of our popular raffle baskets. However, the best way to get these donations is through personal connections and we need your help. If you have a lead on a donation please email Colleen Lewcock.
There are some amazing things available! Here’s just a taste…
