Clean Up Parade

Tomorrow is William Ford’s Clean Up Parade.  The parade starts at 1:30pm.  Second graders are asked to wear white t-shirts.  I would also love if you could donate any brown paper bags (grocery bags are great) for students to decorate and use for the parade.

We look forward to seeing you support our cause by cheering for us along the parade route!!!

Tissues Needed

As spring allergies begin flaring up, we have a lot of sniffling and sneezing happening in the classroom.  If you could spare a box or two of tissues to donate to our classroom, it would be greatly appreciated (by your child and their nose).  :)

Thank you!

Plants Needed!

In science, we are studying plants.  I am looking for a couple donations from families that would make this unit much more exciting for your child.   Also, if anyone has any connections to florists, please contact me.  burkhos@dearbornschools.org

  • 2 large hanging baskets of flowers (Home Depot and Lowes usually have these cheap – $6-10). I’m not picky about the type of flowers in them.
  • 5-7 large green (or red) peppers

I would really like to have these items by Thursday or Friday this week (April 21-22), if at all possible.

Thank you for your help!!!!
