Fordson Students Participate In Wayne State University’s Giant Step Conference

Thirty of our students attended the WSU Giant Step Conference on Oct. 23, 2018, which is also National Mix It Up Lunch Day.  41 schools and 250 9th-11th graders attended the conference that promoted social harmony and inclusion through shared issues and experiences. Giant Step teens come from diverse backgrounds to share, learn and eventually uncover what they have in common.

Three of Fordson’s finest seniors were facilitators at the conference.
They were phenomenal facilitators that were trained by WSU, to facilitate youth dialogue.

Fordson Choir Collaborates with National Arab Orchestra and Chelsea High School

Fordson’s Chamber Choir traveled to Chelsea High School to begin a five-month Music Cultural Exchange. The overall goal of the exchange is to build relationships and break down stereotypes through music. This was the first step in the program that will include Chelsea’s choirs visiting Fordson in November, combined evening rehearsals with Chelsea’s orchestra, performing for the Village of Chelsea Hometown Holidays concert series in December, and performing in Dearborn in March.

Here is a video of the performance on October 7t:.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWvi5zyhCks
