Breaking the Cycle with Books

This was Fordson’s first time attending the program Breaking the Cycle with books. This program began at Western High School in Southwest through a former Fordson alumni and student teacher, Mike Cruz. I (Ms. Memminger) am currently working with Mike to extend the program to our school, as well as others.

Eight Fordson students attended; students from River Rouge and Western were also present.
Students were invited to brunch together in Southwest, then on to an independent bookstore (Pages on Grand River) where they could pick a book of their choice on us. After we went down the street, where the kids ordered coffee/tea/hot chocolate. They were encouraged to share their choice or read independently.
Upon return to Fordson, students were asked to reflect on their experience through writing. The intent of this program is to promote positive reading habits, show students that reading doesn’t have to be a chore, and that  reading can be both social and fun.

Cultural Exchange between Fordson HS and Chelsea HS.

Nov. 25th

Early this morning Key club members, Mrs. Scaramucci, Mr. Frank and I attended the yearly handi-cap bowling event at Vision Lanes in Westland.  This event gave challenged individuals a time to shine and feel a sense of accomplishment while having a good time.  Our students along with Dearborn high members were assigned a lane in which their roles were to cheer on, direct and help support the bowlers. The event started off with an entertaining bowling show and ended with a meal and a little trophy gift for the bowlers.
