Dearborn Public Schools’ Art Department is celebrating its 25 Annual Empty Bowls Dinner on Mon, Nov 19 at Park Place Banquet Hall from 4-6:30. You may make a $5 donation and choose a beautiful handmade bowl. All proceeds will go to Gleaners food bank and Blessings in a Backpack. Below are a few pictures of Girl Scouts Troop 75764 working on their bowls.

STEAM will start this week for grades 3-5. Notification letters for grades three and five went out Monday. Letters for fourth grades students will go out tomorrow. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to email me.

In addition to learning about sculptures throughout Dearborn, the students will create their own found object sculpture. I am in need of the following items:

My name is Jenny Styczynski and I am the new art teacher at Snow ES. Previously I taught art at Oakman and Becker ES, both in Dearborn. I am excited to create art with your children this year! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. I will update this blog throughout the year with information and pictures.

If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools.  Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years.  Read on »
