Mark your calendar for VIP Day on January 25, 2019!

Students are encouraged to invite a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, or anyone else who is a special and very important person to visit them in their classroom! Guests will meet in the cafeteria and be escorted to the classroom to enjoy some special time with their student. During their visit, guests can purchase paper hearts and write a message to their student on it. The hearts will be displayed in the hallway for students to see! Satchel Ford spirit wear also will be for sale. Please ask your guest to arrive just a few minutes before their student's session. Parking is available in the front lot, visitor parking lots, and around the school. 

We look forward to welcoming our VIPs to Satchel Ford! Please click here for the invitation that you can share with your VIP.
