Welcome to our Year of Impact
A Message From Principal, Mr. Zak Watson:
Greetings Ford Family,
As we embark on a new year at Ford Elementary School, I am excited at the opportunity to help develop a bright future for our students. We are “Future Driven” and determined to exhibit excellence in all we do. Our vison is to be the best on all performance measures. Our entire team will work collaboratively to continue building a legacy of success for ALL students through appropriate relationships, professional practices, and needs based instruction.
It is my sincere honor to be a part of the Ford Elementary Team and to work with everyone to make our school the best place for our students and staff to teach and learn. As I begin my twentieth year as an educator, I start with three priorities. These priorities are to ensure our students and staff have a safe and orderly environment, to ensure our students receive the highest quality instruction available, and to maintain high levels of accountability in our efforts and results.
The 2018-2019 school year will be a tremendously successful and rewarding year for every Ford Elementary student as my team and I support the academic, social, and emotional growth of each child. During the course of the year, it is my hope that each stakeholder will lend a hand and maximum positive support to allow our students every opportunity for success. You will find that my door is always open and I am here to support you in any way possible. Therefore, feel free to stop by to share suggestions, provide support or to serve as a volunteer. I will host Principal’s Chats throughout the school year so that you remain informed and we have opportunities to share ideas and success stories.
Again, I am delighted to have the amazing responsibility of leading our future leaders and trailblazers.
Your Servant Leader,
