All Dearborn Public Schools will be open on Monday, February 12, 2018.

We want to thank all the hard working Engineers, Custodians, and staff members in the Operations and Grounds Department for putting in many extra hours this weekend to clear school parking lots and sidewalks.

We also want to extend a thank you to all the crews at the City of Dearborn who have been working hard all weekend to clear streets in our city.

After checking road conditions, talking with the City of Dearborn, and having discussions with our Transportation Department the District does not anticipate any wide spread problems or delays.

However, with the amount of snowfall and cold temperatures, conditions may exist on a few side streets that require slower then normal and extra cautious driving. Please be advised that these conditions may cause some buses to run a bit behind schedule on Monday.

Bundle up and see you in school on Monday!

Kindness Club Project

Oakman’s STAND (Kindness Club) is partaking in The Kindness Rocks Project. This project promotes random acts of kindness in the shape of painted rocks with inspirational words and messages.

Ask your children to explain to you the meaning of the Kindness Rocks Project. You may also view the attached video together.

The students have painted rocks and hidden them around the school. When students find a rock they may keep it, re-hide it, or leave it for someone else to find. Please encourage your children to paint and hide their own rocks. The goal of the group is simply to spread joy, kindness and brighten someone’s day and use kindness to combat bullying.

Not only is it fun to design and create these gorgeous rocks, students are able to learn the powerful skill of using words to inspire and motivate both themselves and others around them!

Thank you!
