THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Thank you to all of the people who have helped support Henry Ford PTA this year through direct donations and/or selling items for the Fall Fundraiser. With the extra money brought in this year, we were able to buy new earphones, mouse pads, and mice for the computer lab.
Ambassador families are invited to join us for a new family meet & greet at Ingenium on Saturday Jan 27, 9:00-11:00 am. We especially would like K & 1st grade students to play with the incoming kinders and parents who are happy to wear their Spiritwear and answer questions about the Henry Ford experience.
- Add your name to our directory. We distribute this online and in person through a number of channels so that interested parents can contact knowledgeable parents directly. https://goo.gl/forms/v9JmxWqWoxwO3ifh2

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/
