SFE “Putting Child Nutrition First”

Dear Parents/Teachers:

I hope everyone had a relaxing summer vacation and is excited to return to school.  We have been working hard over the summer to add some new items to each campus and wanted to share some of the changes with everyone.   We are pleased to announce that SFE (Southwest Foodservice Excellence) became the new food service management partner at Dearborn Schools on July 1, 2019.  As a result of this partnership, we are pleased to announce the following changes:

  • All meat served district-wide will be certified halal.  More information is available on the foodservice website.
  • All meals district-wide will continue to be free.
  • We pledge a focus on fresh-from-scratch cooking and menu variety. 
  • Fresh fruit and vegetable salad bars will be available daily at lunch.  While this will be free for students who purchase a meal, salad bar access also will be available as an a la carte option.  
  • Full nutritional information is posted for all menu items on the Dearborn Schools website.  
  • The Roving Chef program is available.  This fun and interactive culinary program will provide principal-selected students with special instruction in nutrition, proper food safety/cooking techniques and healthy mealpreparation—all while working alongside a real chef.
  • A variety of entrées will be offered daily to appeal to student tastes and preferences, with on-trend culinary concepts that including recipes from a variety of cuisines.
  • A selection of 3 entrée choices will be offered daily for Elementary students, consisting of the menu items listed above. Middle Schools will have 4-6 options and High School students will be offered 6-8 options daily.
  • A dedicated team of professionals including chefs and nutrition coordinators will be in Dearborn daily working with staff and students.

Along the way, we plan to request frequent feedback from our students through regular taste tests and panels.  That’s because we are dedicated to creating custom menus and programs that get every student excited to eat at school, knowing they will find nutritious foods that they love.  Above all, like you, we want to be sure that they are happy, healthy and well-nourished to learn.

We welcome feedback from you as well!  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me:  joshua.bain@sfellc.org

Sincerely, 

Josh Bain
Sr. General Manager of Nutrition Services

Full nutritional information will be posted for all menu items on the Dearborn Schools website and Nutrislice webpage:  https://dearbornschools.nutrislice.com

  • First warning bell rings at 8:32 a.m.; teachers will escort students to class and instruction begins at 8:35 a.m.  Children entering school after 8:45 a.m. must be accompanied by a parent and sign-in at the main office.  Students will not be allowed to enter class without a parent signature.

  • If a child must leave school early or arrive late parents are required to sign students in and out in the school office.

Health Matters

  • Elementary age children require a minimum of ten hours of sleep per day; it’s a good idea to begin sending the little ones to bed a little earlier this week so they may acclimate to earlier bedtimes.
  • Students require a healthy fortified breakfast before coming to school each and every day.  Breakfast at school is served between 8 -8:25 a.m.  Students eating breakfast at school should not arrive before 8 a.m., Cafeteria breakfast is not served after 8:25 AM.

  • Students need to bathe regularly and clothes washed daily.

Dress Code

  • Students must dress appropriately in a manner that is not distracting or disruptive to the learning process and weather suitable. 
  • Skirts, shorts, and skorts must come to the tip of the longest finger in a natural stance. 
  • Writing is not permitted across the seat of a student’s garment.  Mutilated clothing (cut, torn, written on etc.) safety pins as decorations, chains, writing on clothing or skin is not permitted.

  • Makeup is not permitted. 

We appreciate your full cooperation with these set standards.  Failure to comply with Dearborn Public Schools Dress Policy will result in parents being called and/or student being sent home.

Traffic

Great news, Cotter pre-school has changed their start time and will begin at 8 a.m.  This will significantly reduce traffic congestion during drop-off and dismissal.  Following established traffic patterns, working together and placing citizen safety first ensures we all remain safe.  A map of traffic flow is attached, please review and follow carefully throughout the year so we may preserve the safety and timeliness of all citizens.

School Board seeking applications for vacant seat

 

– Board Secretary Fadwa Hammoud resigns after appointment as Michigan Solicitor General

 

Dearborn Public Schools is seeking applications from residents hoping to fill a partial board term after Trustee Fadwa Hammoud resigned from her position this week.

 

Hammoud, a 2003 Fordson graduate, has served on the board for more than three years.  In January, she was appointed to serve as Michigan Solicitor General and has since decided to resign her board seat to avoid any potential conflict of interest between the two positions.

 

In her resignation letter to Board President Mary Petlichkoff, Hammoud thanked the Board for its dedication to the community.

 

“Precisely because my success has been possible due to the help of others, like yourself, I live with the perpetual desire to give back to the great people of our state,” Hammoud wrote. “That desire is at the heart of my lifelong commitment to public service, and I am eager to continue that work, armed with the courage you and the rest of the

Dearborn Public Schools and Henry Ford College family instilled in me.”

 

As Solicitor General, Hammoud is responsible for prosecuting criminal cases for the State of Michigan, including those from the Flint water crisis.  She previously served as a Wayne County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney. She was appointed to the Board of Education in July 2015 to fill a vacancy and then elected as trustee in November 2016.  When she resigned, she was serving as Board Secretary.

 

“I want to thank Trustee Hammoud for her dedicated service to the Dearborn community and now to the entire state of Michigan.  We are always proud to see the success not only of a community member, but a proud product of Dearborn Public Schools, and we know she will serve the state well,” said Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko.

 

The Board has 30 days from Hammoud’s resignation date to appoint a new School Board Trustee.   

 

Anyone living in the Dearborn Public Schools district can apply for the vacant seat. Applications will be accepted through Tuesday, March 26, 2019. Those interested should hand deliver or send a letter of interest, resume, and three references to the Dearborn Public Schools Administration Building, 18700 Audette, Room 6, Dearborn, MI 48124. All materials must be in the Administration Building by 4:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) on March 26.

 

The Board will review all submitted applications, and all of those eligible to serve will be interviewed. The Board will determine an interview schedule based on the number of applications submitted.  To serve on the school board a person must be a U.S. citizen, at least 18 years of age, and a resident in the district.

 

The applicant selected will serve on the Board until the next general election in November 2020.  Trustees serve as the board for both Dearborn Public Schools and Henry Ford College.

 

The Board of Education sets district policy and budget, hires and evaluates the superintendent and college president, approves union contracts and pay scales, and oversees construction and other major building issues. Trustees are not directly involved in day-to-day operations of the schools or college.

 

Those wanting a better understanding of the Board’s role can view previous school board meetings on the Dearborn Public Schools YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/dpscommdept.

 

 

Message From Your Principal:

March 19, 2019

Dear Miller Parents,

 

This morning a student walking to the bus stop misinterpreted a driver’s hand signal as a Stranger-Danger incident.  The student ran to a neighbor’s house and alerted them of the encounter, the helpful neighbor welcomed her in and school administration was contacted.  Dearborn Police were called to investigate and after reviewing camera footage, police determined there was no credible threat to the student.  Thankfully this was not a Stranger- Danger incident; instead it is a great teachable moment and opportunity to review safety and Stranger – Danger with your child.  The student running to a neighbor’s house, notifying the School Office and taking precautionary measures were the RIGHT choices to make! 

 

Spring is a great time to change batteries in the smoke detectors and even a better time to discuss Stranger-Danger with our children.  Remind children to report anything suspicious or out of the ordinary and to always error on the side of caution.  Looking out for one another and being kind neighbors are important to building a strong community. The Dearborn Police Department is committed to ensuring safe, healthy and nurturing neighborhoods; safeguarding children and building strong relationships with citizens remains the priority!  Help build a stronger community and keep our children safe by discussing good safety habits to adopt while playing throughout the neighborhood.

 

Here are a few helpful reminders:

  • Never talk to a stranger.
  • Never get into a car with a stranger, even if they tell you they are looking for a lost pet or someone you know is hurt and they will take you to them.
  • Children should walk to and from school with other children.
  • Always report suspicious characters to parents, teachers and the police.
  • If approached by a stranger, tell an adult.

 

Keeping a watchful eye and being a good neighbor makes our community a great place.  Checking in and maintaining an open line of communication with your children, neighbors, schools and police department ensures WE are prepared for life’s challenges. 

 

Have a safe and wonderful start to Spring-2019! 

 

Respectfully,

 

Radewin Awada

أهالي طلاب إبتدائية ميلر الكرام،

 

لقد تعلمنا هذا الصباح درساً في السلامة عندما قامت إحدى الطالبات التي كان يسير باتجاه  الحافلة بتفسير إشارة أحد السائقين على أنها تهديد بالخطر من شخص غريب . هربت الطالبة المعنية إلى منزل أحد الجيران و نبهتهم إلى الخطر الذي شعرت به ، ورحب الجيران بها  وتم الاتصال بإدارة المدرس و تم استدعاء شرطة ديربورن للتحقيق في الأمر.وبعد مراجعة لقطات الكاميرا تم تقرير أنه لم يكن هناك تهديد للطالبة ، و الحقيقية هي أن شخص بالغ قد أشار للطالبة بالسيرو المرور قبل أن يقوموا بالانعطاف إلى الممر. لحسن الحظ ، لم يكن هذا حادثًا ينذر بالتهديد بالخطر من قبل شخص غريب ، لكن استجابة الطالبة  الوقائية في تنبيه الجوار وإخطار مكتب المدرسة كانت الخطوات الصحيحة التي يجب اتخاذها!

 

فصل الربيع هو وقت رائع لتغيير مدخرات كاشف الحريق و لكنه وقت أمثل للتحدث مع الأطفال حول خطر الغرباء عليهم. ذكّروا الأطفال بالإبلاغ عن أي شيء مشبوه أو خارج عن المألوف و أخذ الحيطة و الإبلاغ عن إي خطأ يرونه أو يشعرون به و إن كان من باب الحذر. الاعتناء ببعضنا البعض والجيرة الجيدة أمر مهم لبناء مجتمع قوي. تلتزم إدارة شرطة ديربورن بضمان أمان و سلامة و ورعاية الأحياء المجاورة أثناء بناء جسور التواصل مع المواطنين و تبقى حماية أطفالنا على رأس أولوياتهم ! ساعدوا على بناء مجتمع أقوى والحفاظ على أمان أطفالنا من خلال مناقشة عادات السلامة الجيدة التي قد يمارسها الأطفال أثناء اللعب في أنحاء الحي.

 

إليكم بعض التذكيرات / الاقتراحات المفيدة:

 

  • لا تتحدثوا إلى الغرباء ابداً.
  • لا تستقلوا  السيارة مع شخص غريب ، حتى لو أخبركم أنه/ أنها يبحثون عن حيوان أليف مفقود أو أن شخصًا تعرفونه مصابًا و سوف يأخذكم إليه.
  • السير من و إلى المدرسة مع أطفال أخريين.
  • دائماً ابلغوا عن أي شخصية مريبة أو مثيرة للشك للأهل و المعلمين و أفراد الشرطة.
  • إذا اقترب منكم أحد الغرباء أو حدثكم أخبروا شخصاً بالغاً على الفور.

 

المراقبة المستمرة و التعاون و إظهار علاقة جيرة جيدة و طيبة تساعدنا في الحفاظ على مجتمعاتنا آمنة. التحقق من سلامة الأطفال و التواصل المستمر معهم و مع المدارس وقسم الشرطة يضمن أننا على استعداد لمواجهة تحديات الحياة.

 

شكراً لكم مع كل التقدير

D-SHINES Update & More Healthy Tips

Hello Everyone!  This Dania Alsaidi from Mr. Duering’s 5th grade class!

Classes are still researching to determine the vegetable and herbs to purchase and plant in our garden. To make this a fun and memorable time, students are developing some fun voting and contest activities to make this a great learning experience. On March 12, 2019, the class with the most facts wins an additional planting experience!  Stay tuned to see which class wins.

Healthy Tips to share: 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The healthy choices we make not only fuel our body for the day, but also fuel our brain. We know that kids learn better in school when they eat breakfast. Did you know cereal is the number one breakfast food for children? If you enjoy eating cereal, try something different by adding strawberries or bananas; incorporating more food groups to your meal. By eating a healthy breakfast, you give your brain the energy it needs to make good decisions throughout the school.

When we exercise during gym class or recess, we release toxins from our body through sweating. It is important to replenish and hydrate our bodies and the best way for children to do that is to drink water. Water helps carry nutrients to every cell in our body and helps remove waste products from our major organs. Try your your best to skip sugary drinks such as sports drinks or pop and have a glass of water instead!

Children should be physically active for 60 minutes every day. Gym class and recess help us stay active, but so does participating in other activity breaks such as GoNoodle in your classrooms. As the spring weather starts to get warmer, take a family walk or play outside before or after school. On your family walk, you could insert 30 seconds of skipping, hopping or galloping to make it more fun. Think of some ways you enjoy physical activity with your classmates and family.

 

Have a great weekend everyone!

 

 

Healthy Tip For Tuesday!

Hello again! My name is  Dania Alsaidi, 5th grade student from the Ecology Club.  Here is the healthy tip of the day!

Dairy contains nutrients that help build strong muscles, bones and teeth. Milk, yogurt and cheese are the three main types of dairy and provide calcium to keep our bodies strong. It is important to include a healthy amount of dairy in your daily meals. Did you know that low-fat chocolate milk is a perfect drink to enjoy after physical activity? Think of different types of dairy you eat every day. What are some of your favorites?

Tune in tomorrow for an update on our contest and another healthy tip!

Dearborn Shines Contest (Student Post)

                         Healthy Dearborn logo

Hi, my name is Dania Alsaidi from Mr.Duering 5th grade class.

I wanted to share some exciting information with you about our Dearborn Shines Project. In anticipation of the upcoming planting season we are asking for students input to determine the vegetable and herbs to purchase and plant in our garden.

To make this a memorable time we have some fun voting and contest activities. This will  provide you with essential background information so that students can cast an informed vote.  We have also given everyone a contest packet for students to work on. From these submissions, your class will be entered in a school-wide contest to claim the spot of planting your schools pollinator garden bed!

Stay tuned for updates throughout the week and some exciting healthy tips we will be sharing.  

Hi, my name is Reem Saleh and I am a student in Mrs. Traicoff’s 4th grade class. 

Here is Monday’s Healthy Tip: 

It is important to fill HALF of your plate with fruits and vegetables every day.  Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins and provide our body with the super power to fight off illness.  For example, we know red fruits and vegetables are full lycopene which can help prevent certain types of cancer.  Our school garden will soon be full of colorful fruits and vegetables. Think of some of your favorite fruits and vegetables and different ways you might eat them.

تحية لكم أهالي مدرسة ميلر،

لقد حققنا سوياً نجاحًا رائعًا في وضع إرشادات وتوقعات بشأن حركة المرور حول المدرسة. أشكركم على تفانيكم في الحرص على سلامة الطلاب واقدر لكم الدعم المتواصل ونحن على مقربة من فصل الربيع.

على مدى العامين الماضيين، لقد قمت بالتعاون مع فريق جمعية الأهالي من أجل محاولة تأمين منحة بمقدار مائتين ألف دولار بغرض إنشاء مسارات آمنة في جميع الطرقات القريبة من المدرسة. هذا البرنامج سيعمل على تحسين تدفق حركة المرور وإنشاء مسارات آمنة للمشي وركوب الدراجات للطلاب من و إلى المدرسة. نحن الآن ندخل في مرحلة حرجة في عملية طلب هذه المنحة و أنا بحاجة إلى دعمكم.

سوف يعقد منتدى في كافتيريا المدرسة يوم الثلاثاء 26 فبراير 2019 من الساعة 2 إلى 3:30 مساء. أرجو التفضل بحضوركم و سأوف أكون ممنون لتفاعلكم و مشاركتكم بأي آراء أو مقترحات. إن حضوركم ومشاركتكم الفاعلة في هذا الاجتماع سيكون أمر في بالغ الأهمية لضمان الحصول على المنحة بنجاح.

تقبلوا تحياتي

EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE!

Dear Parents,

On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, residents of Dearborn and the Fairlane district of Dearborn Heights will join together to vote on a millage renewal proposal for Henry Ford College (HFC).

Here are some important facts about HFC and the millage renewal proposal:

  • Instead of paying taxes to another community college district, and recognizing the importance of local governance and local control of taxes, Dearborn Public School district residents decided to establish their own college. Henry Ford College is Dearborn’s college, serving the residents of Dearborn and its surrounding communities for 80 years.

  • According to the City of Dearborn’s Assessor’s Office, the average taxable value of homes in Dearborn is approximately $54,000. Based on this 2018 information, a one mill renewal will cost the average homeowner $54 per year, or $4.50 per month, the same amount they are currently paying.  When the voters approved this mill in 2013, the average homeowner payment was $3.75 per month. As home values have increased, the monthly cost has increased by 75¢ per household, on average.

 

  • Dearborn Public School district residents receive a substantial tuition discount (in-district tuition is currently $99 per credit hour versus $172 for a non-resident). Out of Michigan’s 28 community colleges and 14 public universities, Dearborn Public School district residents who attend HFC pay the third-lowest tuition rate in the entire state of Michigan.

 

  • Eligible high school students can take classes at HFC through our many dual enrollment programs, which can lead to zero-cost HFC degrees. By participating in HFC’s dual enrollment programs, many students graduate from the local Dearborn high schools with their freshman and often sophomore years of college already completed, which can result in substantial savings to them in time and money to complete their studies.
  • On average, 36% of college-bound Dearborn Public Schools graduates attend HFC.
  • As recent news reports indicate, students across the nation are leaving college with record-high debt. HFC provides an affordable, quality alternative to the higher cost of four-year institutions by providing lower tuition rates, workforce program options, and a community-recognized, excellent education that can lead to any career.  HFC also offers a four-year tuition freeze guarantee, which assures that today’s tuition rates are frozen for students who graduate from HFC within four years.
  • HFC’s English Language Institute offers instruction in American English, language, and culture. This intensive program prepares students for success in college-level English courses and employment that requires written and oral proficiency in English.

Henry Ford College has a long tradition of providing a high-quality education to students at a low cost. Without the successful passing of this millage proposal, the College would experience budget shortfalls that would negatively affect staffing, facilities, student support services, and technology advancements across campus.

Please exercise your right to vote on November 6.
