June 10, 2019


Dear Parents of Fifth Grade Students,

In our last week of school we have a lot going on and this will serve as a reminder of what is needed.

  1. REMINDER:  All snack charges, library books or fines MUST be paid by 6/11/19
  1. Locker Clean out- June 10-12.  All items in lockers and desks must be cleaned out and sent home.  Students might want to bring home a large trash bag if they have a lot of things.
  2. Pool Party- students are going to Levagood Park on Wednesday June 12th.  Students need to bring: bathing suit, towel, sunscreen, a bag to put the wet suit in, sports equipment such as a tennis racquets, soccer ball, basketball, etc. , their own drink in plastic bottles (NO GLASS) labeled with their name.  The main food is provided by the PTA. Many of you have signed up to donate snack – please remember to send that as well. In case of inclement weather, we will picnic here at school in the hall and find another special thing to do.
  3. Field Day- Tuesday June 11th 9:00-11:35am
  4. Honors/Promotion Ceremony – This will be held at 9:30 am on Friday, June 14th.  Students should dress up nicely. Please remember NO strapless or spaghetti strap dresses for the young ladies and NO jeans or tank tops for anyone.  If the students wear shorts, please be sure they are dress shorts. Parent and guests will be able to park on the south playground (off Myrtle) if the streets are full.  Cameras and tissues are probably a nice addition for parents. We are very proud of our students and their achievements and are happy to share that with all of you. Refreshments will be served in the cafeteria after the ceremony.  Once they are finished, students may go home with you right away instead of waiting to the end of the day.


Thank you!

Mrs. Tiba Mrs. Bush Mrs. Hickson Mrs. Currie

Dearborn starting early college for education majors


Next fall, Dearborn Public Schools will start its fourth combined high school and associate degree program, this one focused on educating future educators.

Henry Ford Early College – School of Education will allow students to get degrees in child development or pre-education for elementary, secondary or special education.  Students can also leave with a paraprofessional certificate, giving them the option to work as a classroom aide while they pursue their bachelor’s degree at a four-year university.

The new School of Education joins three other Dearborn Public School programs that allow students in five years to both complete high school and earn an associate degree or professional certification, all at no cost to the family. All of the programs are possible through a partnership between the school district and Henry Ford College.  The three Henry Ford Early College programs are housed on the college campus, including existing programs focused on healthcare and manufacturing-related careers.  Another program, the Henry Ford Collegiate Academy, is a mix of traditional high school classes at Dearborn High, Edsel Ford or Fordson and courses at Henry Ford College.

Since the first early college started in 2007, Dearborn Public Schools has had more than 230 students graduate from the five-year programs.

Students in the School of Education will be able to get hands-on experience in classrooms across Dearborn Schools.  Eighth graders were allowed to apply to the college earlier this school year, although the program only recently received official state approval.  The School of Education is open to students from across Wayne County.  It will accept about 50 students each year.

“It’s going to be great,” said Early College Principal Majed Fadlallah.  Graduates from the program could help fill what is expected to be a growing teacher shortage in Michigan and around the country, Fadlallah said.

Dearborn School students enrolled in the combined high school/college programs are allowed to participate in traditional high school activities like sports and clubs back at their home high schools through 12th grade.  The district provides busing from the home high schools to the Early College programs.

“Dearborn Public Schools is grateful and proud to be able to offer our students these early college programs in cooperation with Henry Ford College.  Whether we are helping launch students directly into a career or giving them a head start on a university degree, we understand these programs are a great asset to our students, our families and our community,” said Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko.
