Assistance for the Sanders Family

As many of you are aware Vijay Sanders, our beloved 5th Grade Student, passed away this week. We have been overwhelmed with the amount of people that have reached out wanting to help the Sanders Family. 
The PTO will be setting up a restricted fund for the Sanders family to help them with their needs at this difficult time. If you would like to make a monetary contribution please send cash or check made payable to Satchel Ford PTO in an envelope and remit it to the front office. The PTO will be working closely with Gina Terry and Kevin Hasinger to make sure that the family’s needs are met. If you have any questions in regards to the donation please email sfordpto@gmail.com.
Thank you for your support!


Yearbooks will be distributed May 12. If you did not pre-order a yearbook, there are still some remaining. If you would like to purchase one, please send $20 (cash or check made out to Satchel Ford Elementary, in an envelope marked "yearbook") to Sue in the front office.
