The Dearborn Big Read has been launched and it has something for everyone. Publish a recipe or have your family story videoed and included as part of local history. Many events will be held to celebrate What’s In A Name?, which is a book by Jhumpa Lahiri.

Local book clubs have offered to host book talks about this book and these are included in the grant that the Dearborn Public Library received to fund the third Dearborn Big Read.

Religious Diversity Journeys 

Religious Diversity Journeys continues to grow! For the 2017-2018 academic year more than 700 7th graders in Michigan will benefit from immersive educational journeys in churches, mosques, synagogues and temples. This year there are 5 distinct groups (cohorts) of students, representing more than one dozen public school districts and about seven private schools.  Specifically, for our district, approximately 50 seventh graders will participate in the journeys.

We want to continue to highlight that the main purpose of these journeys is to teach our students about others and for them to understand that many commonalities exist that connect us to one another in positive ways.

For more about the Religious Diversity Journeys program, please view this informational video: https://vimeo.com/143729993

Interested 7th grade students can pick up an application packet from Mr. Haddad in the counseling office.
