On Monday afternoon a sprinkler head in an upstairs classroom in the new addition failed causing substantial flooding to the new classrooms. Restoration crews are on site ensuring all areas will be thoroughly dried, cleaned and rebuilt if needed. School will be open on Tuesday, January 19th for all students except those in Ms. Vann’s, Ms. Hamm’s and Ms. Hodgkinson’s Kindergarten rooms. Those three classrooms will not be ready until Wednesday. More information and any changes will be sent home by letter with your child on Tuesday. Please know that Dearborn Schools will make every effort to return all students to their classrooms in the new addition as soon as possible.
No School on Monday, Jan. 18th in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King.
Wednesday, Jan. 20th is a Late Start. School begins at 9:30.
The Giving Tree
Just a reminder that William Ford is collecting food items that will be donated to Gleaners. Collected food items will be distributed to those in need before the holidays! The food items can be placed under the tree in the lobby. Our goal is 1,350 food items! Help us meet our goal for those in need!
We Are Getting Closer!
650 Cans so far!
Nearly 150 William Ford students and their families spent Saturday morning at the Dearborn Centennial Library. William Ford’s Literacy Coach, Elizabeth Garcia, organized the event in connection with the children’s department librarian. The students were welcomed and given information on acquiring a library card, special events, what one can find in the library, and more. Students and parent also heard stories read aloud by Mr. Higgins and Natalie Garcia (Mrs. Garcia’s daughter). Thanks to all who attended!
William Ford welcomed the Aeolus String Quartet from New York City on Tuesday afternoon. The Quartet, sponsored by the Chamber Music Society of Detroit, offered two performances for our third -fifth graders!
