It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! With help from families, the PTA will be providing something special for our teachers each day of the week, except Friday which is Principal Griffiths day to treat. We encourage you to visit the volunteer sign ups for the Staff Breakfast on Wednesday 5/3 and the Afternoon Sips & Sweets on Thursday 5/4. Our amazing teachers will love to feel our love for them!
On Wednesday May 3, 6 – 8 PM in the Henry Ford Elementary Cafeteria, there will be an event hosted by Reading Partners and Redwood City REACH. Henry Ford students and family members will enjoy an evening filled with literacy activities and read alouds by school staff, community members, and special guest author, Tim McCanna. Events will run continuously throughout the evening and a light meal will be served. All families will leave with free books to take home.
Our biggest FUNdraising event is just around the corner Friday May 19. Mark your calendars and buy discounted presale tickets online at http://henryfordpta.org/pastadinner
Reviews are critical to our school’s reputation. We need your help to build up http://henryfordpta.org/reviews from which we will rotate 2 at a time to feature on the homepage. It would be ideal to have a mix of parent, student, and teacher testimonials. If you and/or your child are able to help, please send to email@example.com :
- 2-3 sentence testimonial
- Your photo (I will crop to a circle)
- Your full name & whether you are parent, student, teacher
- Your grade (if student or teacher)
