Scavenger Hunts

Since the weather is getting warmer, I thought I would find some interactive scavenger hunts to do outside, as well as in your own home. Each scavenger hunt also provides discussion questions for you to ask your child while finding the items. I have sent an email with the attached scavenger hunts.

Again please feel free to contact me through Dojo or email me at gaulk@dearbornschools.com

Thank you for your continued support during this difficult time. I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy.

Updates

All Schools will now be closed THROUGH April 13.  We were planning to return that day, but now are scheduled to return Tuesday, April 14. 

Free meal distributions will continue during the shelter-in-place period.  Providing food is an “essential service.” In fact, we now are planning to extend the meal distribution through our spring break, so food will be handed out Monday to Friday through at least April 13.
