Welcome

Gerald R. Ford Elementary School provides a safe, nurturing and child centered environment in which our children can grow academically, socially, and emotionally. We encourage our children to learn, celebrating their creativity, initiative and individuality, through
 their daily interactions in the classroom as well as, through their participation in many supplemental and enriching programs. Our students are focused on always doing their "personal best." Staff members are dedicated and committed to the success of every child, and their professionalism is greatly acknowledged. Our parents/guardians and volunteers, through their continued involvement, help provide the support and interaction that contributes to a wonderful partnership between home and school, benefiting the children at Ford School. Community support provides access to additional activities, events and resources that augment our educational focus. We collectively continue to provide the best to all our children. Thank you for making Gerald R. Ford Elementary School a special place to learn and grow together.

Sincerely,
Mr. Scott Davis
Principal, Gerald Ford Elementary School
