Dear DCS Parents,

As the school year winds down, we want to update you on several important calendar items.

As part of the ten-year facility plan that the District has been working on, the District will be placing a bond proposal on the August 8, 2017 ballot. We will be holding two Community Forums regarding the bond proposal:

  • Monday, May 22nd, 6:00-7:00pm at Creekside Cafeteria, 2615 Baker Road.
  • Wednesday, May 31st, 6:30pm at Creekside Cafeteria, 2615 Baker Road. 

For more information regarding this proposal, please view the following slides: DCS Bond Proposal Presentation.

We have attached the final 2017-18 school year calendar to this message. For families who must plan time off far in advance, please note that we follow the Washtenaw ISD common calendar, which means that school breaks through the 2021-2022 school year have already been determined. Please see the Common Calendar link on our website:

We also have three upcoming district-wide fundraisers that we'd like to draw your attention to: 

  • The Creekside Garden Sale is May 20th at Creekside and at the Gazebo downtown, 9am-2pm. Creekside students raise these plants from seeds. Proceeds support the Creekside Garden club, which is part of the district's Farm to School Program. This initiative helps kids learn about gardening, conservation, and the food supply chain, as well as taste produce from local farmers!
  • The Athletic Booster Club of Dexter (ABCD) is holding a Bowling Night Fundraiser on May 20th, 7pm at Chelsea Lanes. Proceeds benefit all Dexter Athletic teams. 
  • Excellence for Dexter Students (E4DS) is conducting a fundraising campaign to support enrichment programming in Dexter Schools. 

Please click the following link for flyers for all three fundraisers

Thank you for your continued support, have a great week and Go Dreads!


Christopher Timmis, Ed.D.
