March 7

Hello Satchel Ford Parents! It’s time for the PTO’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Boosterthon. Last year Satchel Ford profited over $30,000, thanks to all of your hard work and dedication to our school! Last year’s profit was used to fund a certified math tutor. The teachers and students are super excited for Boosterthon to get underway again. The theme this year is Mind Spark, a mystery theme that combines S.T.E.A.M. Skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) with character building. Mark your calendars and get ready to support Satchel Ford’s biggest fundraiser! We couldn’t be the amazing school that we are without our awesome families, students, teachers and administration. All of your support is greatly appreciated!
