Nation Ford Mission

Nation Ford is dedicated to supporting all student learning through faculty collaboration and a sense of family.

Principal's Message

Nation Ford Families,


I hope you had a good eLearning day today and that you are staying safe!

Spirit week is next week, and I'm really excited to experience my first "normal" spirit week at Nation Ford. In the past, I would see videos of Nation Ford's spirit week and I was so impressed with our students enthusiasm and school spirit. We have a lot of fun events planned for the week, and I'm so grateful to Spirit Club and Student Council for all of their hard work planning this week. Thank you also to everyone who has helped organize the Homecoming dance next Saturday. We are glad to provide our students with these opportunities.

Please note that we are pushing back when report card grades will be posted in Parent Portal to 4:00 on Tuesday.

This week the Fort Mill School District put out a new policy in regards to middle school and elementary school students at district sporting events. We will enforce this policy at Nation Ford events.

I hope you have a great weekend and that you stay safe!


Sincerely,

Chris Chandler

Principal

Yearbook Photo Submissions

The yearbook staff needs your help completing the summer student life section of this year’s school yearbook. Please use the links below to complete the Google Form if you have images that may apply. While we love pictures of beautiful landscapes, we will likely only use pictures featuring our current students. Please read the criteria for the images since we do not use selfies or pictures with filters, etc. Be sure to provide as much detail as possible in the description area so that our staff can write a quality caption. Also, try to provide the most original version of the image for quality. One last note, you will need to be signed in to a student Gmail (@students.fmsdmail.org account) to access these forms. We will need these images as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your support!
