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.
Top fundraisers were 4th graders Fatima Bazzi and Hamzeh Awadallah, each collecting over $100.
Hamzah Fawaz leaps over the rope in “jump the wave” game.
