  • Show leadership and commitment
  • Are kind, welcoming, and accepting of others

Please submit a 500-word essay on the following:

Explain the importance of being your true self and encouraging others to do the same.

Then, choose a storybook character(s) and give advice on how to be true to themselves.

Students can submit essays to croninl@dearbornschools.org

Post-Production Needs

STC Family,

“We’re All in This Together,” the theme of High School Musical, really captures the essence of what is needed for a production to succeed. Each show, it takes over a hundred students and adults, with a range of talents, to bring the musical to life.

And so it’s that time again: post-production tasks.

Cast & Crew: Please turn in your scripts & any costumes/costume pieces you may still have to Mrs. Cronin on Thursday!

Parents: If you are willing to contribute, there are still many tasks that have yet to be completed including striking (taking down) the set, removing the paint off the windows, etc. If you are interested in volunteering, we will be meeting up this Friday, June 7, after school in the auditorium. 

Should you find yourself able to come in & assist please text the following number to let us know: (313)-721-0121  🙏🏼

And of course, as always, thank you for the continued support!

Food Arrangements for Tech Week #2!

We will be having a potluck each day with different themes. Please help provide dinner for our hard-working kids this week by signing up for different days using the links below!

Check back every night for changes/updates. Some nights we may have enough of something to carry over to the next night. In that case, we will cancel the extra. If we are short, we will add. Items like drinks and paper goods can be brought in at the beginning of the week.

We will be feeding about 80-90 people. Sign ups will be estimated for about 20 each. Please bring fresh food by 5 pm so we can have time to set up. Please come through the back doors for drop off. I understand not all parents have time to cook if you would like to make a donation towards buying things needed please reach out to me.
