Girls Basketball Team Wins Big

basketballGirls Basketball TeamTo say it was a one way game is an understatement! Our Girls Basketball Team produced its best effort so far, and the result showed it. The 64 – 06 score against Salina reflects how dominant our girls were. They looked inspired, missed very little shots, and were close to perfect on their rebounds. Neither last week’s loss, nor the injury to Malak Alhajj could thwart or discourage them. Instead, each player worked a little harder and just nailed the game to close perfection. Congratulations girls!

Coach Reed must feel very proud of you, and why not? We all do!!!

The goal of our upcoming Town Hall is to bring together local residents to create a multi-disciplinary approach to ending stigma associated with addiction.

EDSL Proudly Presents The Pirates of Penzance: Oct. 20

The Pirates of Penzance opens on Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016 at 7:00 pm in Edsel Ford High School Auditorium!  The show is a Gilbert and Sullivan comic operetta. It is really visually and aurally engaging.  There are some FINE singers and Edsel ford costumers have done a great job. Their pit orchestra is comprised of students, parents, teachers, and one retired EFHS Instrumental Music Director. The production will be conducted by EFHS newest Performing Arts team member, Miss Sarah Oren.
The show is another opportunity for our kids to become invested in what happens at EFHS outside of the classroom.  Please remember that the Theatre Program is COMPLETELY dependent on ticket sales (there is no District Funding), so every ticket that is sold makes a difference.   SEE YOU THERE!
