Impact Award To Recognize Non-Teaching Staff

Just as the Teacher of Year award celebrates the classroom teachers, the Impact Award recognizes all other (non-teaching) staff members who demonstrate the District’s Core Values and strive to create a better Dearborn Public Schools.  Nominees should be consistently professional, personable and polite as they work with students, contribute to the classroom environment, and provide overall customer service.

Examples of staff members who are eligible include Principals, Parapros, Custodians, Bus Drivers, Secretaries, Media Specialists, Food Service Staff, Social Workers, Skilled Trades, Computer Technicians, or anyone who is not a classroom teacher but works for the Dearborn Public Schools.

 

Previous nominees may be nominated, however previous Impact Award winners may not win again.

https://events.myschoolcolorrun.com/event/2018—Howard-Elementary-School—Dearborn-MI

On Saturday, April 28th, 2018 Howard Elementary School will be hosting its 1st Annual Howard Dragon’s Color Run in honor of National Child Abuse Prevention month. There will be an untimed 5k and 1 mile fun run throughout the neighborhood where you will pass through color zones and get doused in a rainbow of color.

Prior to the race there will be free yoga classes in the park offered to all ages and experience levels. There will also be a food truck rally going on throughout the event. In addition, there will be a phenomenal feature performance from the outstanding Blue Crow Talent Circus Troupe. Prepare to be amazed! This is a super fun event for all ages that promotes the importance of our youth, education, and a life-long healthy way of living. This event will also bring our strong community together to make a difference.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention month so our goal is to bring awareness and support to two amazing charities that we will be donating 10% of the proceeds to each, Child Help- prevention and treatment for abused and neglected children and Forgotten Harvest- stopping child hunger. The rest of the proceeds will go to each Howard classroom for teacher support and the funding of educational programs. We all know how much teachers spend out of their own pockets, so this will be extremely helpful.

Dearborn to individually test outdoor

emergency sirens on Thursday, March 8

One-by-one tests will occur periodically during the day

DEARBORN, Mich. – The City of Dearborn will be individually testing outdoor emergency sirens on Thursday, March 8.  Residents and visitors should not be alarmed if they hear a nearby siren sound.

Siren tests will start about 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 8 and continue periodically throughout the testing window in different areas of the city.

Dearborn has 19 emergency outdoor sirens.  Emergency personnel and technicians will sound the alarms one at a time during this Thursday, March 8 testing to ensure each is working properly and can be heard appropriately.  An alarm could be sounded more than once on Thursday, March 8.

This is part of a periodic, more thorough testing of the emergency alert system.  Dearborn will continue to hold citywide monthly tests on the first Saturday at 1 p.m.

Outdoor emergency sirens are designed to quickly warn people who are out-of-doors about threats, including severe weather, such as tornados, so they can take cover.

The City of Dearborn also uses the sirens when it declares a snow emergency in the winter, so residents know not to park their vehicles on the street.

In an actual emergency– if time allows– information may also posted on the City website at www.cityofdearborn.org and on social media at www.Facebook.com/cityofdearborn.

Dearborn Police also distribute emergency information to residents who register for it through its Nixle alert system.  Sign up at Nixle.com.  Because Nixle messages are controlled by the police, they are likely to be more timely in an emergency than the city’s website or social media.

The City thanks residents for their patience during the upcoming siren testing.  This work is part of ongoing efforts to ensure Dearborn provides top-quality safety measures for residents, workers and visitors in Dearborn.
