Sorting and Patterning

-Sort your SPOONS, FORKS, and KNIVES! Put them in groups and talk about their differences. (Parents: mix them all up and allow your child to do this independently!)

-Make patterns with them! (Spoon, fork, spoon, fork) (Knife, knife, spoon) etc. 

Sorting by type and size!

Story Time and Writing Activity

Above is the story The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Listen to the story with your child and then have them draw a picture of their favorite part of the story. Help your child write their words under the story. Share a picture of your child and their work with their teacher.

Hope everyone had a restful Spring Break and is staying healthy.


It’s such a beautiful sunny day…

Go outside and take a walk or play in the backyard today. Practice skipping, hopping, running, kicking a ball back and forth,or play a game of catch! These skills are important as they help to improve balance, coordination, control, muscle strength and stamina.

The fresh air , the movement and the sun will be great for all of us! 


Food Schedule Change

On Monday, March 30, Dearborn Public Schools is changing the format of its free student meal distributions.

Meals will now be distributed three times a week, instead of five.  

Meals will generally be distributed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. However, the week of April 6 to 10, meals will be handed out on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Friday, April 10, is Good Friday and a holiday for District staff.

Fewer meal distributions should make it easier for families to get the food while reducing the risk of virus exposure for both our families and our staff. Each food bag will still contain both breakfast, lunch and milk for a child under 18, but now the bag will have food for each day until the next distribution.

The grab-and-go meals will continue to be handed out between 10 a.m. and noon at the same seven schools.  The Dearborn Schools student does not have to attend that school to be eligible for a meal. A designated person can pick up meals for multiple children.  The student does not need to be present.

The distribution sites are Fordson, Dearborn and Edsel Ford high schools; McCollough/Unis; Salina Intermediate; Smith Middle School; and Woodworth Middle School.

The program is allowing the District’s 20,700 students to continue to have access to healthy food. The meals are funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s School Lunch Program. Dearborn Public Schools already used the federal program to offer all kindergarten to 12th grade students free lunch and breakfast on school days.

Meal distributions will continue through the state-ordered school closure.  Currently, schools are set to reopen on April 14.
