Mary Ford Families!
Welcome to the opening of what promises to be a wonderful school year filled with Panther Pride! At this time of the year, there is great anticipation of what is to come, and I am as excited as the teachers, children, and parents of the Mary Ford Elementary (MFE) family.
I ask that you join me in welcoming all new members to our teaching staff and embrace the excitement that their talents bring to our learning community. Together teachers, students, and parents/guardians make a strong MFE family. We appreciate your support as your child enters the classroom to learn, and grow through the year. Let’s all commit to an excellent school year, setting every student and teacher up for success.
This school year we continue to ask our entire school community to embrace the mission of MFE and spread the message that our number one priority continues to be student achievement. Our overarching goal this year is to continue to challenge our students intellectually, grow them socially, and continue to guide them toward independent critical thinking and problem solving with Panther PRIDE! This can all be done through continuous collaboration that is grounded in what is best for our students.
We will also continue to implement the Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS). This initiative, coupled with Response to Intervention (RTI), allows positive and effective educational and behavioral support for all students. The PBIS School Team will meet monthly and serve as a catalyst to ensure consistency with school-wide expectations. We ask for your support as we move forward making this school year a success for all children.
Please feel free to call, email or visit with your ideas, suggestions or concerns. Your input is important to me and is an integral part in all that we do.
