Edsel Ford High School

Daily News for Feb. 5th

Good morning, Edsel Ford! Today is Thursday, February 5th , and these are your daily announcements.


The A.S.A.P. after school program will begin at 2:20, not 2:30.  You  must be in your  classroom by 2:20.


Did you know that our school will be implementing a late start program on certain Wednesdays, starting Feb. 11th?  Students will report to school at 8:15 instead of 7:15.  Students who are bussed to school will report to the building at the regular time, and go to the cafeteria.  Please see your teacher or counselor for a list of Wednesdays and the daily schedule for this late start  program.



Hey Edsel Ford!  Did you know that it is National Green Week?  Did you also know that Edsel is the “greenest” high school in Dearborn.  Unofrtunately we may lose something that makes our school “green”  We are in danger of losing our paper recycling bin if we don’t collect more paper. 

Please encourage your parents, friends, and neighbors to help us collect more. 

Anyone with paper routes, please recycle your extra papers here at Edsel Ford. 

The bin is colored yellow and green and is located by the student parking lot.  And as always, recycle your paper in class instead of throwing it in the wastebasket.  Every little bit helps!!!

To become more involved with recycling here at Edsel Ford come see Mrs. Haddad upstairs in the academy, room A204B.  Thanks!!



The EF Girls’ Basketball program would like to thank all of the students and staff members who contributed to our fundraiser on Tuesday.  We would also like to thank the Booster Club for donating the concession money for that evening.  The team was able to raise a whopping $750 for the American Cancer Society.  Way to go, Edsel Ford!



Congratulations to the two Michael Berry students that placed in the Health Occupation Students of America competition at Schoolcraft College. Eleni Shestani placed 2nd in Prepared Speaking and Dylan Reminder placed 1st in Medical Photography.


Congratulations to our EFHS vocalists for a fine showing at the District 12 Michigan School Vocal Music Association Solo and Ensemble Festival held last Saturday at Saline High School.  Ten students received “excellent” ratings and seven students received “superior” ratings.   Well done!


There will be a mandatory Spanish NHS meeting after school today.


Attention Interact Club members: there is a mandatory meeting TODAY in Herr Sedore’s room. We will be planning upcoming events and Relay for Life. Everyone is welcome!


Juniors who would like to be a member of the EF Report Live Broadcast Crew need to  pick up an application form in the Library Media Center.  Applications will be accepted throughout February. 


Edsel Ford will be sponsoring the annual wheelchair basketball game soon.   All proceeds will go to Wigs For Kids.   If you would like to play in the game, class officers will be signing up five boys and five girls from each class.


Edsel Ford now has a Knitting Club. Staff and students are welcome to bring their projects and meet in F13 every Thursday after school.


This year’s Sponge will be held on Friday, March 13th from 7-10 pm. Guest Passes are available and ID’s will be required at the door. Tickets will be sold throughout the month of February at both lunches by class officers:   $40 per couple and $25 for singles.  If you owe a fine or have been suspended in or out of school for any reason during the second semester, you will not be allowed to attend the Sponge Dance.


All students: you can still buy a yearbook for $70. There are less than forty to purchase so don’t wait! Get yours today! Also, baby and buddy ads are still available until space has been filled.


Now for today’s sports:

Boys’ basketball is home against Inkster. JV begins at 5:30 and Varsity begins at 7.

Boys’ swimming is away at Trenton at 6:30.


Today’s lunch will consist of: Nachos and cheese, hamburgers, spicy fries, cheese rolls, pasta salad, sandwiches, cookies, and milkshakes.


Now for today’s random fact:

Banging your head against a wall burns 150 calories per hour.


Thanks for listening, Edsel Ford. Have a great day!
