Edsel Ford High School

Daily News for Feb. 9th

Good morning, Edsel Ford! Today is Monday, February 9th, and these are your daily announcements.


Attention All Varsity Football Players: We will be honoring the 2008 Mega Blue Championship Varsity Football team at half time of the girl’s basketball game on Friday, February 13.


Attention all 11th graders: You will be taking a practice ACT test tomorrow, Tuesday February 10th, from 7:15-10:50. Please be sure to have a good night’s sleep tonight and eat a good breakfast tomorrow morning. Please bring your own calculator for the Practice ACT, or ask a math teacher if you can sign one out TODAY, MONDAY.

Take action to secure your future by giving your best effort on the test. ACT/MME testing is March 10-12. You have one month before the real thing!   


You are invited to a night of student directed scenes! Theater students from Crestwood, Dearborn, Divine Child, and Edsel Ford will come together to share the DHS stage in an evening of comedy and drama directed by the students. This event will feature many of the talented student actors and actresses at these four area high schools on Friday February 13th at DHS at 7:30. Tickets are $5. Please come to support our talented actors.


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.


The first Gay-Straight Alliance meeting will be held on Thursday, February 12 at 2:30 in Room C-4.  Everyone is welcome!  There are some open office positions, if anyone is interested.


Thornley Court Club will be having a Valentine’s Day Bake Sale on February 12th and 13th by the gym hallway near the cafeteria.  Buy your sweetie a nice treat!


If you have any bread at home that you won’t be eating, please bring it in and put it in the breadbox in the hall by the black doors to the courtyard.  The birds love it!

Thanks from the Thornley Court Club!


Did you know that our school will be implementing a late-start program on certain Wednesdays, starting this Wednesday 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. 


Juniors who would  like to be a member of the EF Report Crew  can 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 this WEDNESDAY, February 11th.   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.


Hey Edsel Ford!  We are the “greenest” school in Dearborn!  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 yellow and green bin 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!


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.


Have you ever heard anyone say “that’s so gay”?  Do you realize that when you say that, it can be very offensive.  The word “gay” should not be used to describe something as stupid.  Show more sensitivity!


No sports today, Edsel Ford!:


Today’s lunch will consist of: cheese quesadilla, chicken noodle soup, hamburgers, Spanish rice, spicy fries, cheese rolls, strombolis, milk shakes, ice cream, salads, sandwiches, and cookies.


Now for today’s random fact: You can make a glass of apple cider with three apples.


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