The Dearborn Public Schools is excited to announce that they will be starting a “Chain Reaction” against bullying behavior at their second annual Response to Bullying Kick Off event! All are welcome to attend this free event being held on Monday, October 1, 2012, starting at 6:00 pm. at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn.
“Our community knows that bullying behavior can happen anywhere or anytime; in the classroom, at the park, in the mall, or on-line. This is the reason our Board of Education took on this project and why we have had such great support from our Mayor, City Council, community groups and organizations,” commented Dearborn Superintendent Mr. Brian Whiston.
Last year’s kick-off was a huge success with more than 700 community members in attendance. This year’s celebration should prove to be even more entertaining as students from around the district will have their talents on display. Student-made videos, songs, dance numbers, and other talents, all revolving around the theme of bullying, its effect on the victim, and how to be an Up-Stander, will be included in this sixty minute variety show kick-off event. Inspirational words from Dearborn Mayor Jack O’Reilly and Dearborn Schools Superintendent Brian Whiston will highlight the program.
New district policy on bullying behavior includes language that requires all Dearborn staff having any contact with students to participate in annual anti-bullying professional development on how to prevent, identify, respond to and report bullying behavior. In addition, each school will hold annual anti-bullying training for parents, track incidents of bullying, and hold three anti-bullying events each year.

It is with great sadness that I have to share with you the loss of an amazing colleague and a dear friend Pam Gantt-Covington. If some of you did not have the opportunity to get to know Ms. Covington’s character, she truly was the epitome of integrity, commitment and loyalty. Ms. Covington had a heart of gold and her presence always managed to lift the spirits of those around her. She truly was a selfless individual that was here for all of us. She was a team player that was willing to do WHATEVER it takes. She refused to lower her expectations and genuinely believed that each and every child can and will achieve. Throughout her career, and even near her retirement, she never complained and maintained her momentum with perseverance and a positive attitude. Ms. Covington will be deeply missed and forever remembered.

We prepared the school supplies list to help you make appropriate choices while your children are shopping for supplies for the next school year. Even though the school will continue to provide some of the supplies for your children, we chose to send you this list in the newsletter so you can get what your children may need while items are on sale in August. Please detach this page and save it on your fridge for later use. This list will also be posted in the school lobby. We appreciate your contributions.
Leveled Book Links: These lists have been posted for parents who have requested help in finding books at their child’s reading level.
