Satchel Ford Boosterthon

Save the Date! 
March 2, 2018

It’s time for the PTO’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Boosterthon. Last year Satchel Ford profited $30,000, thanks to all of your hard work and dedication to our school! Last year's profit went to purchasing a water fountain for the playground and year-round maintenance of school grounds. The teachers and students are super excited for Boosterthon to get under way. The theme this year is Castle Quest. The students will learn about Focus, Self-Awareness, Respect, Trustworthiness, Creativity and being a Life-Learner! So mark you calendars and 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!

Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run is a program for girls in grades 3-5.  The group meets twice a week.  During each meeting, there will be games, activities, discussion and running workouts designed to improve social, emotional and physical health. The season focuses on three main concepts:

1.       Self-awareness and self-care

2.       Selecting healthy relationships and keeping them healthy

3.       Connecting with and shaping the world around us.

The culminating activity is to complete a 5K on Saturday April 28!
