Anti-Bullying Awareness event at Henry Ford College

The Office of Student Activities at Henry Ford College would like to invite administrators, students, teachers, staff, and their families for an Anti-Bullying Awareness event

  • About 20% of students experience bullying.
  • Over 70% of young people say they have seen bullying in their school.

Motivational Speaker, Anthony Ianni, will speak to students and the local community about bullying and share his story with them. 

The Relentless Tour with Anthony Ianni is a Michigan Department of Civil Rights Initiative to eradicate bullying in Michigan and beyond.

Anthony Ianni was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder, which is on the Autism Spectrum, at age 4. Throughout his childhood, Anthony was bullied by his peers, but he worked hard and never gave up. Anthony earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Michigan State University in Sociology and is the first known athlete with autism to play Big 10 basketball. He won two Big Ten Championships, a Big Ten Tournament Title, was the recipient of the 2011 Tim Bograkos Walk on Award and the 2012 Unsung Player Award, and was also a member of the 2010 Final Four team.

Come hear Anthony’s inspiring story and learn about how you can help prevent bullying.

Every 2 weeks one or two winners will be selected and they will have their choice of a za’atar, cheese, meat, or spinach pie.

Welcome Back

First day of school is always interesting, to say the least. The various faces, some familiar and some not so familiar, express a wide array of emotions ranging from excitement to bewilderness and many other shades in between. Looking at all the students always reminds me of all the challenges that all of us, administrators, teachers, staff, and students – not to forget the parents – have ahead of us. Shying away from these challenges is not an option and so we arm ourselves with hope and determination and set ourselves to do our best. WELCOME BACK!

I know that many of you (and us too) wish that the summer holiday was a bit longer, but this is how life goes and we are back to school. Let us make the most out of it. This is a chance to make new friends, to improve on last year, to correct some of the mistakes that all of us do every now and then, or to achieve something we really want.

Welcome back to school and remember that we (administrators, teachers, and staff) are here to help you, so do not hesitate to ask for help if you need it.

Supply Lists

I have received many inquiries about supply lists for various grades during the summer vacation. Here’s what’s most COMMONLY needed. Many other supplies are provided in the classroom like scissors, calculators, etc. If more supplies are needed, teachers will let you know on the first day of school. Also, Mr. Sabra’s office will have some backpacks (supplies ) for certain students. All they have to do, is visit his office starting on Monday, August 26th.
