The first of many photos of this outstanding event going on today/Saturday for students. Kudos to the McCollough Unis staff for leading this worthy endeavor- hundreds of hours to prepare and having 8 elementary and 4 middle school teams represent Dearborn is truly a success. Many thanks to Robotics committee chairs Chadi Farhat, Kamel Bazzi, and Kidada Simmons for their tireless work to launch and sustain this initiative.

Fordson Parent Technology Night Dec 7th- 6-7:30

Fordson staff will be offering technology training to parents on Thursday. Because Parent to teacher communication is one of the strongest contributing factors to student success, teachers decided to work one-on-one with parents in order to help them set up email accounts, subscribe to teacher blogs and set up parent connections accounts. The goal is to make sure that parents have access to these tools.

The 1st parent technology training will take place Thursday December 7, from 6:00-7:30 pm at Fordson HS.
