5th Annual Battle Against Hunger returns…

The fifth annual Battle Against Hunger returns to Dearborn Schools beginning Nov. 18th and runs until November 22nd.  

This marks the fifth year for the food drive and donation collection, which has donated more than 200,000 food items to help local families in need.  Last year alone, Dearborn students, families and staff donated almost 12 tons of food.

All three traditional high schools – Fordson, Dearborn High and Edsel Ford – are all participating again this year as well as many of the middle schools. Please send in any non-perishable food items with your children to Stout.


Important message about Halloween from Mr. Oke and Ms. Faraj

The following rules must be followed if a student chooses to wear a costume:

  • No Props or Weapons of ANY KIND
  • No masks/makeup/hats/wigs
  • No costumes that are revealing
  • Skirts and shorts must meet the fingertip length rule
  • Nothing offensive/Nothing distracting/No fake (or real) blood

Any costumes must be consistent with the dress code policy and MAY NOT interfere with the learning process or the teaching process in the classroom.
Any violators will be asked to change or be sent home. 

In Middle School, classes do not celebrate Halloween, students should not bring bags of candy to school to distribute or any other treats. This causes a disruption to learning in the classroom, in the hallways at lockers, and during lunch. Thank you!

All students in all classes will be writing a mid-unit test beginning either Wednesday or Thursday of next week. The test will cover the material that is in the students’ Instructional book and Practice and Problem Solving Workbook, Lessons 1 – 4. The students will be tested over a 2-day period.


Annual Cipriano Run – October 11th @ 4pm

The eighth annual Robert Cipriano Cross-Country Run will get underway at 1:20 Friday, Oct. 11 at Dearborn’s Ford Field Park, 500 Monroe St. The event features runners in fourth through eighth grade from across the Dearborn Public Schools District and from Divine Child.
Oct. 11 is a half day of school in the district. Sixth through eighth grade students will run two-mile races starting this year with the boys at 1:20 p.m. and the girls at 1:40. Fourth and fifth grade boys and girls will participate in races against others of their grade and gender. Those one-mile races start at 2 p.m.
“It’s exciting to see this event continue to reach so many students and to encourage a habit of physical activity,” said Director of Student Services Abe Mashhour. He also oversees the District’s physical education and athletic programs. “For many this may be their first experience in an organized run, but for others it is becoming a family tradition. Since this is our eighth year, many younger students are following in the footsteps of their older siblings who have also participated in this great event.” Mr. Cipriano was the District’s Director of Business Services for more than 10 years. He also oversaw athletics in the Dearborn Schools. In April 2012, Mr. Cipriano was tragically killed when two young men broke into his home and attacked
him, his wife, and a son. Mr. Cipriano, an avid runner, was working with the athletic directors to create a running program for middle and elementary students that would encourage competition, lifelong fitness, and fun. The Cipriano Memorial Cross Country Run is a fitting tribute to his work in Dearborn, his commitment to the children, and his love of running.
The run allows elementary and middle school teams from across the district to engage in friendly competition while also growing an interest in cross country and track. The entire community is invited to come to Ford Field Park to support the student runners and cheer for their favorite school! Following each race will be a brief awards ceremony to recognize the top 10 finishers in each category. “This event is another example of how the District is working to promote habits that create healthy lifestyles for our students and support the community wide Healthy Dearborn program,” said Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko. Once again, the district has teamed up with the Dearborn Track Club and the City of Dearborn to coordinate the event. Last year, more than 800 students registered for the event. The run takes place rain or shine. However, for safety reasons it could be canceled in case of severe weather such as lightning, thunder, heavy rains and/or winds. In the case of bad weather, students and parents are asked to visit the Dearborn Athletics Blog at to check the status of the run.
