Great Happenings at Fordson High School: Students First: Inspire, Educate, Celebrate!

Fordson Key Club Group Shot

Fordson’s Key Club recently attended the 67th Michigan District of Key Club International Service Leadership Conference in Kalamazoo, MI.

Key Clubbers from all over MI came together for service, workshops, meetings/events, training, and parliamentary procedures.
Our students shined representing their home school and community in the best of ways! Showing that caring is truly their way of life! They were recognized by the state of MI for all their outstanding service work throughout the year. The following are awards they received:
*100% minuets and monthly award
*Major Emphasis – project eliminate (2nd place)
*Early Bird
*UNICEF award
*Single Service award – SOAP project (2nd place)
*Club Video (1st place)
*Oratorical Speech- Hassan Hammoud (3rd place)
*Outstanding Treasurer-Aya Hamid 
*Outstanding V. President- Hannen Farhat
*And one of our Kiwanis Advsiors Mr. Frank received the Kiwanis Advisor Award (well deserved)
*Hassan Hammoud was voted in to take on the role of District Secretary (this is Big for our school for he will oversee every MI Key Club schools Secretary role (David Tran’s previously role). 
Again these accomplishments and recognition by the state of MI would not be possible with the support of our staff, community, students and most importantly our sponsoring DOD Kiwanians (Advsiors: Mrs. Rosa Scaramucci and Mr. Roger Frank. 
Fordson High School Girls’ Basketball Team Won Their Districts for the First Time Since 1999!  Outstanding job, Lady Tractors! 🙂 
Last weekend the Fordson Robotics team did an absolutely amazing job at the Southfield District Competition and took first place! 🙂

Important School Safety Message

February 27, 2018

Dear Parents,

As part of our ongoing effort to keep an open line of communication with our parents, I would like to take a moment to share information regarding a story that has been circulating in some parts of our community.

Last night, we received information that a student made some vague threats on social media.  At this point, the authorities are well aware of the situation and talking with the student and the family. It appears that this is a case of someone not thinking about what they were saying or understanding the implications of their words. I would like to be clear that at no time were any students or staff in danger. The information that was shared with the school was acted upon immediately and with the full cooperation of the Dearborn Police and the family involved.

We do live in a time where any type of threatening comment must be acted upon swiftly and the consequences for making such comments can be severe. Please use this information as an opportunity to talk with your children about careful use of social media and comments made to other students.

Keeping an open line of communications and working together will allow us to continue to be a great school and a safe place for your child.

Sincerely,

 

Heyam Alcodray

Principal

Child Protection Registry

Are your children safe while online? Michigan families, especially minors, are becoming inundated with advertisements from alcohol, tobacco, pornography, illegal drug and gambling marketers through different internet and cell phone inboxes. Texting their advertisements is the newest marketing effort that many of these companies are using. Thankfully, the Michigan Secretary of State’s office offers a free program to stop adult advertisements from reaching e-mails, mobile phones (text messaging ads) and instant messenger IDs. The Michigan Child Protection Registry, like the federal Do Not Call List, is a free do-not-contact service for Michigan’s families.

As a strong supporter of this Registry, I would like to encourage you to sign your entire family up for this program and inform your friends and colleagues about how they can protect their children and families from unwanted adult advertising. To sign up only takes seconds. Just go to www.ProtectMIChild.com and keep your family safe.
