Art in Action
Looking for a way to spend some time in your child’s classroom without a big time commitment? Volunteer to lead or assist with in-class art lessons! Art in Action is a PTA-supported program that brings art into the classroom during school hours through parent docents and assistants. The lessons and other training/teaching resources are provided on the website, making it easy for anyone to step into a leading or helping role. The kids love these lessons, and they create fantastic pieces of art in addition to learning about different artists and techniques.
If you would like to volunteer or just want more information, please email Julie Prosper at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please Join Us
All school parents are welcome at our meetings. Come learn more about how you can support our nationally award-winning programs that help your child succeed. Please join us at our first meeting of the year on Tuesday Sep 12 @7:00pm. We host an ice cream social beforehand and will provide childcare.
Can’t make the meeting but have a free moment later? Find opportunities to help whenever you’re available at http://henryfordpta.org/volunteer/
With so many school choices in this area, Henry Ford’s success depends on our ability to attract quality students. Filling all 3 Kindergarten classes each year ensures optimal staffing for successive grades to support the differentiated, targeted learning groups that make our school special.

Clip and send in Box Tops found on household products with your student. Each Box Top is worth at least $0.10 for our school…and they add up! We need to get our earnings back over $1,000 this school year so we’re running a contest. The classroom that brings in the the most Box Tops between now and Friday Oct 13 will win a donut holes party! Find the surprising list of items with Box Tops 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 then message the PTA for further instructions.
