Non-Teaching Staff Members Recognition-Nominate Your Favorite Staff Member

Nominations Due May 9 for 

Dearborn Public Schools Impact Award

To Recognize Non-Teaching Staff

 

-Nominations from student and parents welcome to celebrate non-teaching staff members

 

Children become successful thanks to their own talents and initiative, but critical to getting them on the right track are the combined efforts of many adults, at home and in school.

Students and parents have the opportunity to recognize Dearborn Public Schools staff members, besides teachers, who make outstanding contributions to helping students, enhancing the classroom environment or providing excellent customer service in other roles.

Nominations are welcome for the Impact award, introduced in 2015 by the Dearborn Public Schools.  The deadline for submitting nominations is noon on May 9, 2016.

Just as the Teacher of Year of the year award celebrates the classroom teachers, the Impact Award recognizes all other staff members who demonstrate the district’s CORE Values and are 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, Para pros, Custodians, Bus Drivers, Food Service Staff, Social Workers, Skilled Trades, Computer Technicians, or anyone who is not a classroom teacher but works for the Dearborn Public Schools.

District employees who are eligible for the Impact Award include full or part time staff members employed with the Dearborn Public Schools for more than three years, who provide ongoing demonstration of the district’s Core Values, and are consistently personable, professional and polite as they work to create a better Dearborn Public Schools.

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

Nomination forms with a complete list of qualifications can be found and completed online atwww.dearbornschools.org.  Printed nomination forms are available in all school offices and the district’s Administration Office, 18700 Audette, Dearborn 48124.

Four winners will be announced on May 25 at the annual Green Tie Event, sponsored by the Dearborn Education Foundation.  Winners will receive $500 and an engraved award.

For more information about nominating a staff member or any aspect of the Impact Awards, contact the Communications Office at 313-827-3006 or email communications@dearbornschools.org.

Parent Meeting Tomorrow at 9am in the Cafeteria- Session #2 of the ACCESS Program

 

Hello Parents,

 

Join us this Friday, April 29th at 9am in the cafeteria  for our next parent meeting with ACCESS. Session 2 will be about another important topic affecting our community and children. More and more we hear about high schoolers and young adults abusing prescription and/or illegal substances.  This affects all of us as a community. Join us for some great discussion even if your children are young, consider your relatives, neighbors and community affected by this subject.

 

Also new in our building now is a program you can use. At ACCESS, a large part of our work with families is helping parents understand when their child (ren) is struggling with mental illness. Consulting with a professional and seeking early treatment is the key to a child’s success. ACCESS’ School Based Mental Health Initiative allows for a qualified and bilingual mental health professional to be based in your child’s school to provide services while easily working with involved school professionals and with your family’s schedule.

When educating parents on mental illness, we typically find that they can feel submerged in feelings of helplessness and despair. It is important for families to know that they are not alone and that there are resources, like ACCESS, available to assist them in providing the care their children need to succeed. ACCESS’ School Based Mental Health Initiative also includes a program to educate parents about the different issues that can inflict emotional hardships, such as substance use and bullying, through monthly workshops in the school.

There is a strong correlation between untreated mental illness in children and poor school performance. The key to living successfully with mental illness, both inside and outside of school, requires family acceptance. Having a strong will to work together with the child, mental health professionals, and teacher/ school officials will help to create a safe space that will instill in the child a sense of love, safety, and support. Let ACCESS provide you with proper treatment and a judgment free space in your community.

 

نشرة إخبارية عن مبادرة الصحة العقلية المستندة على المدرسة

 

              انتم مدعون الى اجتماع مهم جدا نهار الجمعة 29 نيسان\ابريل الساعة 9 صباحا في قاعة الكافيتريا (مدرسة أوكمن) مع موظفين من المركز العربي حيث يتم في هذا الجزء بحث مواضيع مهمة تتعلق بالابناء والمجتمع.  كما اننا نسمع في الاوان الاخيرة عن الشباب واستعمال الادوية وغيرها من العقاقير المخدرة والغير قانونية. يؤثر هذا الموضوع على كافة افراد المجتمع وان كان اولادكم لا يزالون صغار ولكن تستطيع تنبيه وارشاد ومساعدة الاقرباء ,الجيران والاصدقاء ويكون لديك الوعي الكافي للتعامل مع ابنائك في المستقبل.   

 

في المركز العربي أكسس، جزء كبير من عملنا هو مساعدة الأهل على فهم ولدهم / أولادهم عندما يعانون من مرض نفسي. التشاور مع المهنيين والسعي إلى علاج مبكر هو المفتاح لنجاح الطفل. مبادرة الصحة العقلية المستندة على المدرسة والتي يرعاها المركز العربي أكسس ACCESS يسمح لأخصائي الصحة العقلية المؤهل والثنائي اللغة أن يكون مقره في مدرسة طفلك لتقديم الخدمات في الوقت الذي يعمل فيه بسهولة مع المهنيين في المدرسة وبحسب الجدول الزمني المناسب لعائلتك.

 

عند تثقيف الآباء والأمهات عن المرض النفسي، عادةً ما نجد أنهم غارقين في مشاعر العجز واليأس. ومن المهم أن تعرف العائلات أنهم ليسوا لوحدهم وأن هناك مصادر، مثل المركز العربي أكسس ACCESS، متاحة لمساعدتهم في توفير الرعاية لأطفالهم حتى يتحقق لهم النجاح. تشمل مبادرة المركز العربي أكسس ACCESS للصحة العقلية المستندة على المدرسة أيضا برنامجاً لتثقيف الآباء والأمهات حول القضايا المختلفة التي يمكن أن تسبب صعوبات نفسية، مثل تعاطي المخدرات والتعرّض للترهيب، من خلال ورش عمل شهرية في المدرسة.

 

هناك علاقة قوية بين المرض العقلي غير المعالَج عند الأطفال وسوء الأداء المدرسي. مفتاح التكيُّف بنجاح مع المرض العقلي، سواءً داخل أو خارج المدرسة، يتطلب قبول من الأسرة. وجود إرادة قوية منهم للعمل جنبا إلى جنب مع الأطفال والمهنيين في مجال الصحة العقلية والمعلمين سيساعد مسؤولي المدرسة على خلق مساحة آمنة من شأنها أن تغرس في الطفل الشعور بالحب والأمان والدعم. دَع المركز العربي أكسس ACCESS يوفّر لكم العلاج المناسب والمساحة الحرة لأخذ القرارات الصائبة في المجتمع.
