    • We are nearing the end of our Random Acts of Kindness week and it is impressive to see all of the kindness flowing!  However, if you haven't tried one of the school challenges yet, make today the first day and feel GREAT about it. Start with a smile or hello, or kind words in class, but go ahead and make the effort.  It feels good to do good!  Today's school challenge is to leave a positive note for someone in a not so obvious place.  As quoted by Buddha, "When words are both true and kind, they can change the world."  Don't forget - wear your super hero shirt tomorrow.  Work on finishing that book and Mr. Mucha will show his appreciation by sleeping in the courtyard!
    • (Read as a rap) Listen guys the yearbook cover is blank, but not for long!  We've got you to thank! Get your ideas together and put 'em on paper, do it NOW - don't wait 'til later!  March 1st is only a couple weeks away, we have only 8 entries as of today!  The prizes are great, the fame is forever, looking for a design that's creative and clever!  Hand your design to the closest teacher of art, best ideas come from your brain and your heart!  Now's the time so do not delay, we're accepting your artwork starting today!

    • "We don't have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change.  Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world."  This was said by Howard Zinn, American historian, playwright and social activist.  Random Acts of Kindness week is about doing those small acts because they can mean so much. Today's school challenge is to give someone a compliment.  Thank you to all of you who wore red today.  Happy Valentine's Day!

    • Informational girls' volleyball meeting TONIGHT at BMHS - 6:00PM
    • Philosophers' Cafe for Mrs. Jennings students today during lunch and team time.
    • Kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate.  There are many ways to spread kindness through the day.  Today your school challenge is to say "Thank you" to a classmate or staff member for something you appreciate. As Amelia Earhart said, "No kind action ever stops with itself.  One kind action leads to another. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions and the roots spring up and make new trees.  The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.  Don't forget - wear red tomorrow for Valentine's Day and to celebrate our Random Acts of Kindess week.

    • Newsflash!  This just in!  Did you know that students and staff hbave read 868 books?  We are only 132 more books away from Mr. Mucha freezing his tail off all night!  Let's listen to who is leading the charge...Ms. Bodnar - 101 books, Ms. Balzer - 110 books, Mrs. Griglak - 129 books, Mrs. Krajacic - 135 books and Mrs. Brandt - 216 books!  Keep reading and pray for snow!  Oh poor Mr. Mucha - what was he thinking!
    • Happy Monday!  Today starts a new school week.  As a building we have had a difficult last couple weeks in relation to peer conflict.  Let's move forward and make the days ahead better!  A general reminder to students is that you need to THINK BEFORE YOU ACT.  Understand that to be successful in a negative situation we need to hit the PAUSE button allowing us to stop and think what the best solution is.  If someone makes a negative comment, you need to NOT fight back with words, text messages or be physical with the person.  Focus on what is right and what would be the best solution.  I believe that each of you have the ability to make positive choices.  Just remember to hit the pause button and think what the BEST most appropriate response is. We need to also remember that we can't control others or a specific event but we can control our response.  Make it a GREAT Monday and don't forget to use the PAUSE BUTTON!

  • MESSAGE FROM MR. MUCHA

    In an effort to promote student and staff safety in the hallways, we will now dismiss from school one grade at a time.  During PM homeroom students should be using the time to organize belongings, pack for the end of the day and write down any assignments in their logs.  At 3:17PM, the bell will ring as an announcement that 6th grade students are dismissed to their buses.  Homeroom teachers will walk these students to the appropriate exits.  At 3:21PM, 5th graders will be dismissed and escorted to the exits. We appreciate everyone's cooperation and support in this new dismissal procedure.

  • Ford Intermediate School is a building comprised of 5th and 6th graders.

    Our school is a middle school setup, with a teaming concept. This means that students are placed on a team of teachers and receive a schedule at the beginning of the year to follow throughout the day.

    Teams of teachers work with groups of students to provide curriculum. Students have lockers, varying schedules, and walk to classes independently throughout the day.
