BRICS BOND ELECTION DAY is Tuesday, November 5th

Please remember to Vote on Tuesday. If you can’t make it to the polls on Tuesday, November 5th, new laws allow you to vote at the City Clerk’s office before Election Day. 
This Saturday (November 2) any registered voter can stop by the City Clerk’s Office between the hours of 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and vote via absentee ballot. The Clerk’s office is located inside the Dearborn Administrative Center, 16901 Michigan Ave. 
In addition, registered voters will still be able to request absent voter ballots in person until 4 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 4.

Halloween Announcement

Any costumes must be consistent with the dress code policy and MAY NOT interfere with the learning process or the teaching in the classroom.
The following rules must be followed if a student chooses to wear a costume:

  • No Props or Weapons of ANY KIND
  • No Masks
  • No Make-up
  • No Hats or Wigs
  • No Costumes that are revealing
  • Skirts and shorts must meet the fingertip length rule
  • Nothing offensive
  • Nothing distracting
  • No fake (or real) blood

Any violators will be asked to change or be sent home. 
In Middle School, classes do not celebrate Halloween, students should not bring bags of candy to school to distribute or any other treats. This causes a disruption to learning in the classroom, in the hallways at lockers, and during lunch. 
Thank you!

Get published in a book!

We’re sending out a call for stories, poems, or essays regarding nature with an emphasis on trees and plants. The call is open to everyone, and the deadline is November 30, 2019. Submissions will be compiled and published as a book. Copies will then be added to the library collection for checkout. We will also sell copies as a fundraiser for future Big Reads in Dearborn. To differentiate this book from Call of the Wild Dearborn (our first community anthology), we are not looking for entries on animals or wildlife.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Do you have a favorite tree from your childhood?
  • A poem about trees/plants? How about a haiku?
  • A flower you want to write about?
  • A true story or a fictional narrative involving trees or plants?
  • What do trees mean to you?

Can’t come up with something regarding trees or plants? How about writing about gardening or your favorite nature trail? How about focusing on nature in a more general sense? Or how about something science related? Hope Jahren is a geobiologist who mainly studies plants, trees, and soil. Remember: the world is your lab. Or how about something on friendship? Jahren portrays a close friendship she has with Bill, her lab partner.

Click here to submit your work. We prefer you to fill out this online entry form and email your work as an attachment to thebigreaddearborn@gmail.com.

However, if you do not have access to a computer, you may mail your submission, along with a filled-out participation form, to:
Dearborn Public Library
22100 Michigan Ave.
Dearborn, MI 48124
Attn: Big Read

If you have questions, please contact the library at (313) 943-2330 or thebigreaddearborn@gmail.com. The library is looking forward to reading your submissions!

3 winners for Students’ Corner

Stout students keep making it harder and harder for me to select just 1 winning quote. So instead, I have selected 3. Sure it is costing me a bit more money, but it is worth it. Mind you, the other quotes were pretty good but unfortunately, I cannot afford selecting all. So here are the winners and their quotes. They need to let Mr. Sabra know of their preference: za’atar, cheese, or spinach.
