Welcome to 1st Grade -- Studio 108!!

Dear 1st Grade Families,

 I would like to welcome you to Henry Ford Academy : Elementary School (HFAES).  I want you to know how excited I am to have your child in my learning studio this year. My goal for this year is that your child will leave first grade equipped with the academic and social skills that they need to be a successful second grader.

This site is meant to be a resource for you as well as to keep you up-to-date on activities that are going on within our learning studio. The site will also have our weekly newsletters posted on the announcements page. Please check back often, as important information will be posted throughout the year.  

If you would like to volunteer in our studio, families are always welcome to do so. Please feel free to contact me and let me know of your availability.

This year we have a teaching intern working with us. Her name is Ms. Auth. She is a student at Wayne State and she will be working with us until December. We are very excited to welcome her into the HFA family! 

My office hours are on Monday after school until 4:30pm or by appointment.
My email address is smckenna@hfaes.org. 

Educationally Yours,

Ms. McKenna
