Many of our events are on hold but we will bring to you the events we are able. We can't wait to fully be back and celebrate our wonderful school community together!


Fundraising Events


The PTA organizes a variety of fundraising events to help pay for important school programs. These events have the added benefit of being a lot of fun for our families, bringing us together as a community.



 March 10th, 2021



The next Dine-Out (take out too) is at Chipotle in Redwood City on Wednesday, March 10th, 4pm-8pm. Spread the word to family and friends! Simply mention Henry Ford when ordering and 33% of sales go back to the school.


Support our local restaurants and the school earns a percentage of the proceeds on designated days! Favorite restaurants have been Redwood City BBQ, Crouching Tiger, Canyon Inn, Sancho's, Villa Lucia, Mountain Mike's Pizza, Chipotle and others! All of course do take-out too. Do you have a favorite restaurant you'd like us to contact? Email us at


Fall Fundraiser

October 19th - November 6th, 2020 


The Fall Fundraiser is a perfect opportunity to stock up on gifts of cookie dough, popcorn, chocolate, wrapping paper, and more. Students can even earn prizes! This year the fundraiser is all online and purchases shipped straight to the home. So easy to help the school raise money and get some goodies out of it!


Scholastic Book Fair

March 8th - 21st, 2021



The Book Fair is going virtual this year! Save the date to replenish your family library. Check back here for more information.


A fun volunteer-run book sale held right on campus! Proceeds earn books for school & classroom libraries. Shop with your child or let them shop with friends. They love picking out books of their own. 


Spring Fundraiser

April 30th - May 14th, 2021


Our annual Spring Fundraiser is going online! We will miss gathering together to end the school year but we can still support the school by bidding on all of the wonderful generous donations from businesses and families. Importantly even during Covid days, the PTA still pays for PE, Art in Action, Project Cornerstone, Reading Specialists, Mystery Science, Scholastic News, Classroom Supplies and more.


The Spring Fundraiser will kick off April 30th. Stay tuned for more information!


If you have items, experiences to teach (photography, painting, etc), a stay at a vacation home you'd like to donate, please email us at


Sign-up here to volunteer!


Pasta Dinner, Carnival & Auction




Join us in May for our community fundraiser at Henry Ford! Enjoy carnival games, bouncy slides, a petting zoo, a special “toddler zone” (for kids under 4) and of course our famous pasta dinner. Don't miss the popular Stanford Band! All families and friends, teachers and staff, and community members are welcome!


The evening also includes:

  • A Grand Prize Raffle
  • A drawing for exciting baskets full of prizes
  • A “Buy-It-Now” area where you can purchase great prizes for 50% off their retail value



Though many of our family events are on hold this year, we are introducing new experiences to help families connect with the school. These are a hit! We are continuously working on new ideas for our children to still have fun experiences during these times. Check back here for more!
