BRICS Bond for Dearborn

Bond Overview-Please Vote!

Dearborn Public Schools is asking voters to consider a bond proposal on the  November 5th, 2019 ballot. 

With existing bonds expiring, the District can generate approximately $240 million from the sale of new bonds without a change in the current millage rate of 4.82.  This bond would not increase the current tax rates for residents.

The District is calling the proposal BRICS because the funded projects focus on Buildings, Renovations, Infrastructure, Capacity and Safety.

The BRICS Bond proposal is the direct result of the Infrastructure Task Force, which spent just over three months developing a plan and then making a recommendation to the Board of Education that included a zero millage increase while still generating $240 million to address a variety of critically needed items and updates in our schools. 

Dearborn Big Read-the World is your Lab

Lab Girl is the name of the book chosen as the National Endowment of the Arts Big Read.  The City of Dearborn was fortunate to be selected for the grant once again-this is the third time. Lots of connections with Science, STEM, coding and many sponsors. 

The kickoff event is 10/14/19 at UM-there will be freebies and ultimately books available for students (and adults) to read.


Everyone is welcome to attend

Clean-up Parade at Haigh

Haigh Community:

 

We are excited to announce that Haigh is participating in the “Clean Up Parade” this Monday at 1:30pm! It has been 2 years since our school has had the parade. The purpose of the parade is to instill in our students the importance of keeping our community clean and to promote a healthy environment. On the bottom of this letter you will find the “parade map”. We would love for our community to come and stand along the route to cheer on our students as they make the walk around our neighborhood. Students will be working on signs, hats  or posters this week to carry or wear during the parade. We are asking that all students wear “green” or “their grade level shirts” on this date to show unity and celebrate being a “Green School”.  Please do not feel obligated to buy a new shirt for this event, any form of green will do. At the end of the parade,  the Mayor, myself and 2 of our students will be giving short speeches about the importance of keeping our community clean. If possible we would love to see you here to help celebrate the Clean Up Parade with our students.

و إنه لمن دواعي سرورنا أن يحضر أفراد المجتمع المحيط بالمدرسة المسير وأن يقوموا بالهتاف و تحية طلابنا على المشاركة. سوف يعمل الطلاب على إعداد لافتات أو قبعات أو ملصقات خلال هذا الأسبوع لحملها  أو ارتداءها أثناء العرض .كما نطلب أن يرتدي الطلاب قميص اخضر أو قميص صفهم خلال المسير وفي ذلك اليوم لإظهار الوحدة والاحتفال بكوننا “مدرسة خضراء صديقة للبيئة”. نرجو الانتباه بأنكم غير ملزمين بشراء  قميص جديد لهذا الحدث، وجود أي شيء يحمل اللون الأخضر بحوزة الطالب سيفي بالغرض. سيقوم في نهاية العرض رئيس البلدية، أنا ، واثنين من طلابنا بإلقاء خطب قصيرة حول أهمية إبقاء مجتمعنا نظيف. نتمنى أن نراكم هناك للاحتفال معنا و مع الطلاب في مسير تنظيف المدينة إذا أمكن.

Game Day at Haigh

Families,

 

The end of the month is here, and that means it is time for our final PBIS celebration of the year! On Friday, May 31st, if your child has maintained positive behavior for the entire month, they will participate in Game Day! Students can bring in games/cards/puzzles from home to play at school with their friends. Please label everything that is brought in so nothing is misplaced. This is a super fun event and a great way to recognize the positive behavior throughout our school.

 

Thanks for your continued support,

 

Haigh’s PBIS Committee
