Wayne County Regional Enhancement Education Millage Proposal

 

School districts in Wayne County have placed a proposal on the November 8th ballot to provide added funding for our schools. It is the “Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal.”

If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools.  Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years.  Read more ›

Hello, World!

Welcome back!

For the first week of school, I will discuss the book First Day Jitters with the students.  It is so important that students overcome any fears that they may have about new teachers, new classmates, and new procedures.  We will, of course, review library procedures as well, completing some initial research on animals if there is time.

I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!  There is so much to learn.
