Telegraph Road is one of the busiest highways in Metro Detroit. However, little has been written about its history because its origins were obscure. Telegraph Road was originally constructed as a telegraph access path and a shorter route connecting Dearborn and Flat Rock. Until the late 1910s, Telegraph remained a minor dirt road.

Well, spring is officially here. In many parts of the world it coincides with Mother’s Day. It seems logical as they both represent rebirth. So, for those who are celebrating Mother’s Day on March 21st, Congratulations…

With the arrival of spring, comes the 2019 Stout Track season for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders! The first day of tryouts will take place on MONDAY, APRIL 8th, the first day back from SPRING BREAK! If you plan to tryout, please read the following requirements:
- Students must have a minimum of a 2.0 GPA and maintain that (or above) throughout the season. If a 2.0 is not reached or is lost, the athlete will be dismissed from the team.
- School behavior (bus, hallway, class, cafeteria, etc.) must be appropriate. Students with poor behavior will not be permitted to join, or can be removed if behavior becomes negative at any point during the season..
- Students must have a sports physical completed BEFORE they can participate in the first practice on April 8th. If you’ve already played football, basketball, swimming, or volleyball for Stout, you already have a physical on file. If you haven’t played a sport yet, get a physical form from the office ASAP and let a doctor fill it out!
***ATTENTION THEATER STUDENTS: If you are interested in being part of the track team, please see Coach Hool (boys) or Coach Crechiolo (girls) to make us aware of your interest, as the play performances don’t end until after track season begins.
Want some advice? Running can be very challenging…so start getting ready now! Run, run, and run some more! If you wait until tryouts begin…you’ll be gasping for air on the bleachers instead of sprinting around the track!
Please contact Coach Hool at email@example.com or Coach Crechiolo at firstname.lastname@example.org

On Friday, March 18, 2019, Superintendent Maleyko received the 2019 Business Leader of the Year Award from the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce. This important honor shows the strong connection between Dearborn Public Schools and the business community and emphasizes the relationship between the local education system and the local economy.
Today, we implemented new tardy procedures. Previously, students received a consequence starting with their 8th cumulative tardy of the marking period. Despite having two additional minutes between classes this school year, we have seen an increase in tardies.
Last Wednesday, we held assemblies with each grade-level to explain the new tardy procedures. For the new procedures, we will be focusing on the number of tardies in individual classes instead of the cumulative number of tardies.
- Students will be responsible for tracking their tardies in each class on a poster or in a binder. Students will have to initial next to their name on the poster/in the binder whenever they are late to class.
- Teachers will provide students with a warning upon reaching their 3rd tardy in a class.
- On the 4th tardy, students will be referred to the office for a consequence.
As we transition into these new procedures, students who already have three or more tardies in a class will receive a warning from their teacher. Teachers may also be contacting you if your child has three or more tardies in their class. Please note that your child’s attendance, including the number and dates of both tardies and absences, can be viewed on Parent Connect. If you do not have access to Parent Connect, please contact the office for assistance.
Regular attendance and being on-time are important life skills. Please support us by encouraging your student to be in class and on-time on every day.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and the families of the New Zealand Massacre. We will provide support to students and staff who may have difficulty at school as a result of this horrific act. We will stand together and support each other as we always do. Take care everyone.
There will be an Edsel Ford High School volleyball meeting for incoming freshmen on March 22nd at 7:00pm in the EFHS cafeteria.
Prepare for the final Battle of the Books. It will take place on Friday March 29th at 1:00 p.m. in the Team Meeting Room. You don’t need to bring anything with you. Computers will be set up for you. Mrs. Acker is taping the event and she will be posting it on her blog afterward if any of your family or friends want to see you compete. Best of luck!

A team of scientists just demonstrated something that might shock you: Mercury, not Venus, is the closest planet to Earth on average. The researchers presented their results this week in an article in the magazine Physics Today. They explain that our methods of calculating which planet is “the closest” oversimplify the matter. But that’s not all. Please continue reading…
