Fordson Feeder Literacy Pop-up

Oakman Elementary School was the first site for the Fordson Feeder Literacy Pop-up. On June 19th, many teachers gave up two hours of their first week of summer vacation to provide activities centered around literacy.  Students made a book, a project, heard a read-aloud and were given a book to take home. The next stop is William Ford on June 26th from 9:30-11:30am.

Emergency Drill-this is a practice event-OL Smith MS on June 19th

Dearborn Public Schools, in conjunction with Dearborn Police and other community partners, will hold an emergency training drill on June 19.  This year’s exercise will be at O.L. Smith Middle School. 
Please help us spread the word about this event so community members know not to be alarmed if they see emergency vehicles and other unusual activity around the school next week.
In conjunction with the drill, we are launching a prepared parent campaign.  The attached flyer includes information to help parents understand how they should respond before and during any lockdown situation.

Care to the Core

Care to the Core Day was April 26th.  However, our staff members show support to our students and families year round.  One shining example is our Parent Liaison at Woodworth Middle School.  Ms. Dakroub is always present and willing to assist our families.   She is a shining example of living the “Care to the Core” mission every day.  Pictured here with Assistant Principal Ahmed (left), these two ladies support the Woodworth Hornets.
