Get a “Clue” at EFHS

Edsel Ford students presented a version of the historic game Clue as their fall production. Directed by Robert Doyle, the cast of characters did a “theatre in the round.”  All students did an outstanding job with staying in character and knowing their lines. Nathan Wall as butler Wadsworth was especially compelling.

Safe Routes to School

Miller Elementary Principal Awada and parents, students, teachers, Beaumont and Michigan State staff discuss the concerns about safety in the Miller neighborhood and safe travel to school. Students had excellent input about what will help make walking to school a safe journey.

Fordson Key Club Volunteers

Submitted by Zinab Zreik

This past week Key clubbers were busy! During our Thursday meeting we had our traditional Thanksgiving feast with our members and Kiwanis advisors Mr. Frank and Mrs. Scaramucci. While members were enjoying the potluck, they made Thanksgiving cards to pass out during our Heartland nursing home visit on Friday. Students passed out handmade cards, interacted and met family members of the patients.

On Saturday, our members attended Gleaners food bank where they sorted out donated goods and packaged them to be sent out to families in need. They worked with members of the Freedom fellowship church who were very impressed with our students. I have attached some photos of the events.
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving break with family and friends!

Battle Against Hunger Week

Submitted by Angela Altomonte

This week starts a tradition that started four years ago with Raad Alawan. He wanted to battle off and on the field with DHS to raise cans for families in need. It has now grown into battling against hunger as a community. All our feeder schools and major high schools are battling this week.

Our goal is 10,000 cans and 2,500 dollars for FHS! The organizations we are donating to is Zaman International food pantry for women and children, and Amity Foundation to feed about 35 families, that includes 6-8 members, this Thanksgiving. Our overall goal as a community is 30,000 cans and 7,500 dollars! We can do this if we pull together :).

It is not about the amount, but the action! Students can give whatever amount that it is they can give, please consider supporting this worthy cause.

Below are pictures and a video of high school students taking part in an interview on Channel 7 News, Sunday Morning, as well as the Turkey Trot! Ali Dabaje took second in the 2-mile run and Mariam Dabaja Third!  We raised a little over 500 dollars, after expenses, and 250 cans at the Turkey Trot. Thank you all that supported this! It was cold, but, a different experience for kids of all ages that came to participate.

PD for Early Childhood Specialists

A day of learning for Dearborn staff on 11.6.18.  ECS gathered to focus on data analysis of their kinder students and teamed to do a case study on one of their students.  ECS also focused on Struggling Readers-a text in the LLI kit-and spent time analyzing how to use student performance (running records) and progress monitoring to determine next steps for instructional planning.  A joyous yet tiring day.
