Lindbergh Leader in Me Day

I had the privilege of spending the morning of June 6th at Lindbergh Elementary.  Students shared their role in leadership, a choir performance, jump rope championship team, a recorder performance and the winning artwork in a Google contest.  Visiting classrooms was also exciting as students shared classroom leadership roles and leadership binders.  There are great things happening at Lindbergh!  Go Lindbergh Flyers!

Mr. Oshnock’s Opus

DHS Instrumental Music Director, Jeffrey Oshnock, conducted his final concert as he is retiring this June.  On, May 24th, at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, over 75 alumni returned to perform with Mr. Oshnock one last time.  The evening began with the alumni band playing two patriotic tunes. The 9th-12th grade bands and orchestras played 2-3 songs each. The orchestra’s version of “Phantom of the Opera” was truly moving.  At the end of the evening, 5 alumni came back on stage and performed with the DHS Jazz Band. This was an outstanding tribute to a teacher who has dedicated 32 years to Dearborn students.
