Read by Third Grade!

William Ford Parents

Based on Public Law 306 (October 2016), third grade students who are more than a year below grade level on the state ELA assessment are under consideration for retention in third grade.  Dearborn Public Schools staff in elementary schools have been systematically planning to ensure that teachers have the training to teach reading effectively and that students receive small group instruction based on their needs.  The current year second graders are the first group to potentially be impacted by the legislation.

You are invited to join the district task force to strengthen the planning process and to ensure that the community is informed and engaged in the success of every student.

If you would like to participate, please complete the survey.



Thank You William Ford Community!
As a school we collected 1,966 cans and food items this week for the Annual Battle Against Hunger.  Our donations will be added to the other donations at Fordson High School and given to Zaman International for distribution to those in need.

Your generosity is GREATLY appreciated!  

Donations were collected by HOUSES.  The Yellow House of Achievers donated 714 food items!  The House of Achievers will keep the “House Cup” for now – see Rania below with the cup!

On Saturday morning several staff members and students volunteers gathered at Hanini Outreach and Community Center in Dearborn to package and deliver Thanksgiving food bags.  Special thanks to Ms. Berry, Ms. Honer, Ms. Abadeh, Ms. Bazzy, Ms. Saidi (and daughters), Mr. Higgins, Mr. Lesniak and Ms. Cheaib!
