Ford Road Families,
As we begin the 2020-21 school year, I have the privilege of serving as your scholar’s academic leader. I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, wonderful scholars, supportive parents, and all stakeholders. The elementary years are critical times of development for scholars. I take pride in being at a school where every scholar can find an avenue for success and where every scholar discovers strengths within themselves and within others.
The success of our scholars will be built on the partnerships we have with our families, stakeholders, and with the Walker Homes community. We are a true neighborhood school that educates the whole scholar. We have a culture of high expectations for scholars and staff alike, and it is our sincere aspiration that every one of our scholars meet SCS goals of Destination 2025. I am blessed with the opportunity to watch our scholars grow, learn, mature, and excel every single day through the arts and academics. I take pride in being a Ford Road Tiger.
Ford Road Elementary will begin implementing a new reading program in grades K-5 called Wonders to enhance instruction and implement rigor and relevance in Reading. Furthermore, our staff will be trained on new safety measures due to COVID 19, and scholars will also receive this training once school begins, as safety and security are paramount for Ford Road Elementary. We will venture into this new world of virtual learning together.
With my ambition of continuing the tradition of excellence here at Ford Road Elementary, I am committed to always exploring new ways to meet the needs of all scholars and to more effectively communicate with parents and community members.
Our mission at Ford Road Elementary is moving towards EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE through the ARTS and ACADEMICS with high expectations and – ACCEPTING NO EXCUSES!!
Here at Ford Road Elementary School we are committed to academic and social excellence in every area – Everyday! Equipping our scholars to be Fearless, Respectful, and Scholarly!
I enthusiastically anticipate an exceptional school year!
With Ford Road Pride and Spirit,
Dr. Anniece Gentry, Principal
