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,


It has been a good week at Nation Ford. We had our first ever National Honor Society Induction where we inducted 72 students. Fall sports had a very successful week, our band started their competition season, the six week grading period is coming to an end, and many other things are going on.

It is hard to believe that the first grading period is already over. If you have any questions about your student’s grade then please ask your student first and then if you still have a question, reach out to the teacher. Our message to them is that no matter how they started the first six weeks, it is important to start the second six weeks off strong.

We will host the College and Career Extravaganza on Wednesday night from 5:30 - 7:30. This will be a great opportunity to learn about colleges, various careers, ways to pay for college, and many more. This will be a great opportunity for our students and I hope they will attend. Please see below for more information.

I hope you have a great weekend!

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!
