Although Friday was a half-day, it was a busy day! Nearly a dozen 4th and 5th graders competed in the Annual Cipriano Race at Ford Field. Congratulations to all of our runners, and especially Mourad in 4th grade who finished 2nd in the city and Dalih in 5th grade who finished in 10th place.
Nearly 75 students and parents braved the rain and participated in the Annual Fordson Homecoming Parade on Friday. What a great event!
