For the 10th year Satchel Ford is challenging our families to raise money to support the Prisma Health Midlands Foundation Walk/Run for Life. You can do this by registering to Walk/Run in the event at Segra Park on October 12 or by donating money to your child’s classroom. Cash, change, and checks made out to Prisma Health Foundation will be accepted. Registrations for Team Satchel Ford will be credited to your child’s classroom, just email Terri Eisenstadt and let her know.

The top three classes will win prizes and the homebase that raises the most money will win a PIZZA PARTY! The classroom competition starts Sept. 30 and runs through Oct.11, the day of our own SF Walk for Life. That will be a fun morning of Flora athletes, cheerleaders, and Drumline coming to help us celebrate our hard work.

If you have any questions, please email Terri Eisenstadt.

Click here for easy registration and donations!

Let’s do some good and have some fun!

Watch Dogs


Calling All Men of the Satchel Ford Family!

Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is an exciting national program that has been implemented at Satchel Ford over the last few years.  We have been very encouraged by its success and the positive impact it is making in our school.  We encourage all fathers and father-figures, including step-fathers, grandfathers, uncles, cousins, etc. to participate.  We are only asking for you to donate one school day the entire school year to serve as a positive male role model for students and provide an extra set of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.  Come be a hero for the day!
