From The Principal

Welcome to Henry Ford II

Please visit the April Falcon Forum Newsletter  for the latest HFII information 

As we begin the fourth quarter of the 2018-2019 school year, it is important to remember we still have ten weeks left of school and we stay focused on teaching and learning. School is a marathon not a sprint. Student progress and academic success in the classroom are still at the forefront. We are in it for the long haul and my promise to you is that we will continue to educate your student each and every day. My hope is that your son/daughter finish the academic year on a high note.
As always, the Parent Portal in PowerSchool provides up to date information regarding your student’s academic progress in each of his/her classes. Please check in at least once a week on PowerSchool. If you are seeing a drop off or decline in progress, please contact your son/daughter’s teacher immediately. We all need to finish this marathon strong!

On Wednesday, April 24, 2019 the Macomb Daily and Macomb County Principals Association will honor the top scholars in Macomb County. I am pleased to announce that we have three students who’ve earned the award of All Academic, All County. These students are: Ian Cleary, Emma Fidler and Erika Luft. They will be honored in a special banquet held at Villa Penna and will also be recognized by the Macomb Daily in a special insert in the paper.

If you haven’t joined us yet, please consider attending our monthly Falcon Advisory meeting. Our next meeting is Friday, April 12th at 9:00 a.m. The final meeting for the year is May 17th at 9:00 a.m.  Please join us so you know what is going on at our school and you also have a chance to ask questions and make suggestions for improving your student’s education.

The last ten weeks of school are always a special time of year. Our focus is on celebrating students, the excitement of graduation, and the thrill of all the wonderful memories we all have of high school.
