Although the weather was not completely cooperative, what a wonderful Clean-up Parade at William Ford today! Thanks to the staff at William Ford, the City of Dearborn and the many representatives on hand, Dearborn Public Schools and representatives, all of our special guests, our Grand Marshall Nada Fouani, parents and especially our students (all 662 of them!) for sending a “Green” message to our community! You all were amazing and I could not be any prouder! Photo below of our whole school coming together inside following the parade.

Paws, the Detroit Tigers’ mascot, came to visit the students at William Ford on Friday, March 11th. With a little help from his friend here at William Ford, Literacy Coach Elizabeth Garcia, Paws stressed the fun and importance of reading. He acted out the poem “Casey at the Bat” for 3rd – 5th graders and then visited the classrooms of Kindergarten – 2nd grades.
On Wednesday, March 16th, 68 Students from William Ford raised $1,510 for the American Heart Association in the annual Jump Rope for Heart event. Students gathered in the gym after school with Mrs. Logsdon and had a great time raising money for this wonderful cause.
