Prom invitations will be handed out during lunch.  Students must sign the prom contracts before receiving the invitation.  Any Edsel Ford student going to prom MUST sign the contract – no exceptions. Only guests  NOT FROM EDSEL will be excused from signing the contract.  That means we need a contract signed from the senior that purchased the tickets and their date—if the date is an Edsel Ford student. 

All boys track athletes:  if you have not taken care of your pay-to-play funds or given Mr. Picano your waiver form, please do so before the end of the day.  If you do not do this, please inform Coach Tyler or Coach Machak so we can adjust our meet line-up accordingly.
