Dear DCS Parents,

Summer is nearly here and we’re saddened to see students almost ready to leave us until September.  However, we’re going to use the time to complete many important projects.  We hope all of you are able to spend some quality time with your families and enjoy the summer.  The last two days of school (Tuesday and Wednesday) are half days. 

A few quick information items:

  • E4DS is hosting an end-of-school celebration on June 13th in the Dexter Community Schools Bus Hub (located off of Dan Hoey Road).  A flyer is attached.  This looks to be an incredible event and opportunity to celebrate another wonderful school year.
  • Construction is moving along on the new elementary school.  Photos are included in the attached letter.
  • This summer, there will be several road closures throughout Dexter.  Most of the work is being conducted by the Washtenaw County Road Commission.  However, DCS has two projects involving roads that we plan to complete this summer. The first is a fourth-leg of a roundabout heading into the Creekside Parking Lot.  A sketch is included in the attached letter.  In addition, we will be widening Dan Hoey Road in front of the new elementary school.  Information is also included in the attached letter.  More information on this work is included here.
  • Wondering what’s going on with the Sullivan Memorial Garden? Due to the addition of several baseball fields to the north side, the garden is being relocated closer to the existing kitchen garden. This will be happening in July. Stay up-to-date on Farm-to-School goings-on by checking their website.
  • Dexter Food & Nutrition was recently featured in an article posted by Cultivate Michigan. Read on to learn more about their Michigan Made Meals!
  • Dexter High School summer sports camps will soon have a one-stop-shop with info about all camps. Please check our Sports Camps page after May 30th when we expect all that info to be live. These are a great opportunity to stay active and develop athletic and social skills. 
  • Community Education summer program registration is in full swing. Register early for best selection! 

Thank you for your continued support, enjoy the sunshine, and Go Dreads!
