The 2014 third annual Robert Cipriano Cross-Country Meet will get underway at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18, with a one-mile run/walk for Dearborn Public Schools staff members. At 9:00 a.m., hundreds of fourth through eighth grade students will hit the course in a series of one and two mile races.
Only Dearborn Public Schools students who have pre-qualified for the run participate in the event. Parents and community members are encouraged to attend the event and cheer on the students.
The Cipriano meet will take place at Ford Field Park in Dearborn located at the corner of Brady Street and Cherry Hill Street. Parking is available on the lower level of the field near the baseball diamonds just west of Brady Street.

Are your children safe while online? Michigan families, especially minors, are becoming inundated with advertisements from alcohol, tobacco, pornography and gambling marketers through different internet and cell phone inboxes. Texting their advertisements is the newest marketing effort that many of these companies are using. Thankfully, the State of Michigan offers a free program to stop adult advertisements from reaching e-mails, mobile phones (text messaging ads) and instant messenger IDs. The Michigan Child Protection Registry, like the federal Do Not Call List, is a free do-not-contact service for Michigan’s families and schools and can be located at www.ProtectMIChild.com.
As a strong supporter of this registry, I would like to encourage you to sign your entire family up for the registry and inform your friends and colleagues about how they can protect children and families from unwanted adult advertising. To sign up only takes seconds. Just go to www.ProtectMIChild.com and keep your family safe.
On Friday, September 19th, the Howard School staff and students celebrated The National Day of Peace by gathering around the Peace Pole. We sang about peace and thought about ways to make our community a peaceful place for everyone. Thank you, Mrs. Ventura, for helping us with the song. Also, thank you to Mrs. Thomas for helping us create these beautiful pinwheels.
