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,

Donate HERE For Polar Plunge - Put your student's second block teacher's name in the comments.

I hope you had a great week! I typically don't like asking for fundraising help. The big exception to that is Polar Plunge because the money directly helps our special settings students. It will allow us to have a Unified Games in April where we invite students from surrounding schools to participate in games similar to the Special Olympics. It is a great event! Club Unify is a program that benefits all students who are involved. We really could use your help and support!

If you're competitive then we are currently in second place, but Catawba Ridge is closing the gap. It would be nice to win, but it is more important to help these deserving students.

The Polar Plunge will be on Feb. 4th, so you have a few more weeks of me asking for donations.

Please see below for information about an HBCU college fair, Fort Mill Foundation Scholarships, Blooddrive, athletic schedule, and more.

Have a great weekend!
