Edsel Ford High School

Daily News for November 14th

Good morning, Edsel Ford.  Today is Friday November 14th, and these are your daily announcements.


Don’t forget: students wanting to meet with their counselor need to fill out a pink request slip first! Your counselors will blue slip you when they are available.


The ACT prep test with Princeton Review is next Tuesday, November 18th from 2:30-6:30 in the cafeteria. Those who haven’t signed up with their Language Arts or Math teacher can still sign up in the Counseling office. Please take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to practice for the real ACT on March 10, 2009.


Attention all students, especially juniors: Did you know that you are able to take the ACT practice test online for free? Doing well on the ACT exam is an important part of the MME, and can mean extra money for you for college. You can access the practice tests at  www.mel.org. or through the Library Media Center web page. Stop by the LMC if you have any questions.


Just a reminder: all athletes must have a sports physical form turned in to try out for winter sports! No physical, no try out. See Mr. Picano for more information.


Conditioning for the upcoming boys basketball season will still continue today from 2:30 to 3:30 in the weight room. Tryouts will be on Monday, November 17 in the main gym.  The freshmen tryout will be from 2:30 to 4. Varsity will follow from 4 to 5:45, and the JV will go from 5:45 to 7:45.  Players must have physicals in order to try out. NO EXCEPTIONS!  Please see Mr. Baydoun in the Counseling Office if you have any questions.


Attention all field hockey players – if you have not turned in your $5 for Coach’s gift, you must do so ASAP!  JV – see Melissa or Emily, and Varsity, see one of the tri-captains.


Attention all volleyball players- don’t forget to turn in your uniform to Megan Filipowski as soon as possible.


The following colleges will soon be hosting visits in our building, so sign up in the counseling office if you’re interested:


University of Michigan-Flint on Monday Nov. 24th @ 9:30. Interested students must sign up by today.


Davenport University had to reschedule their visitation to December 11th at 12:15 p.m.


And U of M Ann Arbor on Tuesday, November 25th at 12:20 p.m.  Interested students must sign up in the counseling office by the end of the day on the 24th.


JV Cheerleading tryouts will be in the cafeteria on Monday and Tuesday from 4:30 to 5:30. Tryouts will be on Wednesday from 4:30 until completion. All are welcome.


Students: This is a reminder for those of you who have been assigned detention, in school suspension or Saturday school. You must be on time, have your student ID and your contract signed by a parent or guardian to get admitted. If you do not meet the criteria of having these things, you will not be admitted. If you do not get admitted or show up to Saturday school, you will be suspended on the following Monday.  If it is your second time not showing up to Saturday school, it is a 5 day out of school suspension. If you get kicked out of Saturday School, it is considered a no show and will also be suspended for the following Monday. If you do not show or have your signed contract and student ID to detention or ISS,  further discipline will take place.


There will be an Islamic Club meeting on Wednesday, November 18th in room A-1 at 2:30. There will be a guest speaker. All are welcome.


Congratulations to the 2008-2009 officers for International Club: President, Andrew Lyon. Vice president, Jackie Saeed, Secretary/Treasurer, Alex Gontarski, Spanish Rep, Carolina Tejada, French Rep, Nadia Orchane, German Rep, Lauren Vallee, and Miscellaneous Rep, Afrah Saadi.



Today’s lunch will consist of:

Fish sandwiches, au gratin potatoes, tomato soup, hamburgers, sherbet,  ice cream, spicy fries, pizza sticks, cheese sticks, assorted sandwiches, milk shakes, and cookies.


Now for today’s random fact:

The very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin in World War 2 killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo.


Thanks for listening Edsel Ford. Have a great day!
