Michael P. White Visits Ford Elementary

Michael P. White

Michael P. White, a children’s book illustrator visited Ford Elementary on October 29th. Mr. White met with each grade level in the media center. Students drew 3 pictures and learned about the importance of not giving up on their dreams. We would like to thank Cobb EMC and Gas South for sponsoring Michael P. White’s visit.

Media Center Survey for Parents

We are working on transforming the media center at Ford into a learning commons. A learning commons provides a flexible space that teachers and students can adapt to their needs. This student-centered environment will accommodate individual and collaborative student learning. Here is a great YouTube video on the transformation of several libraries to a learning commons model.

We would like to have input from our parents to help us plan how we can better meet the needs of our students. Please help us by completing this short survey If the link for this survey does not open, please try another browser (Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer). Thank you for your participation.
