Henry Ford Elementary School is a gem of the Redwood City School District located in the heart of the Woodside Plaza neighborhood. As one of the rare K-5 neighborhood schools in the district, we focus on developing the academic, social, and emotional skills of primary grade students. Mustangs learn what it takes to succeed at Henry Ford School, and beyond!

Kindergarten Tours (for school year 2022-2023)
Still virtual for now. The presentations will be recorded and posted on the school website for those who cannot attend.
- Wednesday, 12/15 at 9:00 am and 6:00 pm
- Wednesday, 1/12 at 9:00 am and 6:00 pm
After the virtual tour, current parents will join the meeting, to answer any questions.
If you are current Henry Ford parent, and available to do this or know anyone else who would be interested we would really appreciate it! It’s good to have at least two parents at each meeting. Email email@example.com.
Watch your child proudly show off all they have accomplished during the year. Chat with your teacher and check out the other classrooms, including the next grade up. See the special Art in Action exhibit in the MUR (aka cafeteria), showcasing the artistic talents of all of our students.
For technical support with your child's chromebook or ipad, you can reach the school district at (650) 482-2100, or fill out the form http://bit.ly/RCSDtechsupport (english) or http://bit.ly/
Healthy Cities Tutoring
Reach a child. Touch a Family. Build a community.
Healthy Cities Tutoring's community of volunteers, who range in age from 14-96, provide one-on-one tutoring and mentoring to students for 30-45 minutes per week to improve their academic performance, engagement in learning, and self-esteem.
Informational session on Wednesday, October 13
RSVP by registering on their website (right column here: https://healthycities.site/). You can read more on their flyer (Spanish). If you can't make it, don't worry, there will be other opportunities! All training videos are alas available on-line. For now, tutoring opportunities will be held over Zoom, with the hope that by November, tutoring can be done in-person, at school.
Healthy Cities is also looking for a volunteer site coordinator at Henry Ford! Help match students to teachers, to create long-lasting and successful relationships!
