Research/Science Fair Updates

This year, the DCMST Science Fair will be held on Friday, December 12th.  Students that are currently in 10th grade research class or in an 11th or 12th grade Directed Study class should be well on their way with their projects.  By Monday, December 1st, all 10th grade students are required to have their data collected and analyzed, giving their teachers time to provide feedback before the preliminary poster boards are due, which is the following Monday, December 8th.  If you currently have a student who is in the 10th grade at DCMST, please encourage them to finish their analysis on time so that they will have the best chance at being successful at the Science Fair.  11th and 12th grade Directed Study students are not required to participate in DCMST’s science fair, but are encouraged to so that they can get feedback from judges prior to the Science and Engineering Fair of Metro Detroit, which is held at Cobo Hall in March.  The most successful 10th grade projects at our science fair will also be invited to participate in the SEFMD at Cobo Hall.

Parent Meeting: Monday November 10th 4:30-5:30 PM

Dear Parents of DCMST Students:

The staff of the DCMST would like to encourage the formation of a Parent group in order to facilitate communication between our school community members.  Similar to a PTA, this group of interested parents would ideally form a board of officers and conduct regular meetings.  We envision a collaborative group of parents, teachers, students, and stakeholders working together to support the mission of the DCMST.  Based on feedback from parent teacher conferences, we would like to schedule our first meeting for Monday, November 10, 2014 from 4:30 -5:30 pm.   We will meet in the DCMST auditorium, room D170 (aka The Orange Room). 

Thank you,

Deena Parks—Lead Teacher, DCMST

DCMST Open House

September 9, 2014

Dear Parents,

Please join us on Thursday, September 11, 2014, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm for our annual Open House, at which time you will have the opportunity to meet your student’s teachers and learn about the DCMST curriculum, and how you can be involved in the success of your student and the DCMST program.  Please note that due to the expansion of our program, we will not be able to accommodate all parents at one time; therefore, we will follow the schedule at the bottom of the page.

Please remember that Open House is not a time to discuss individual students; however, if you have a question regarding your child, you may e-mail your child’s teacher. Fall Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled for October 21 and October 23, 2014.  The times for these conferences will be posted on the DCMST Web site ( and announced in the near future.

The DCMST staff looks forward to seeing you again, as we continue our partnership in educating your child.

District Announces 2nd Annual Response to Bullying Kick-Off Event

The Dearborn Public Schools is excited to announce that they will be starting a “Chain Reaction” against bullying behavior at their second annual Response to Bullying Kick Off event! All are welcome to attend this free event being held on Monday, October 1, 2012, starting at 6:00 pm. at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn.

“Our community knows that bullying behavior can happen anywhere or anytime; in the classroom, at the park, in the mall, or on-line. This is the reason our Board of Education took on this project and why we have had such great support from our Mayor, City Council, community groups and organizations,” commented Dearborn Superintendent Mr. Brian Whiston.

Last year’s kick-off was a huge success with more than 700 community members in attendance. This year’s celebration should prove to be even more entertaining as students from around the district will have their talents on display. Student-made videos, songs, dance numbers, and other talents, all revolving around the theme of bullying, its effect on the victim, and how to be an Up-Stander, will be included in this sixty minute variety show kick-off event. Inspirational words from Dearborn Mayor Jack O’Reilly and Dearborn Schools Superintendent Brian Whiston will highlight the program.

New district policy on bullying behavior includes language that requires all Dearborn staff having any contact with students to participate in annual anti-bullying professional development on how to prevent, identify, respond to and report bullying behavior. In addition, each school will hold annual anti-bullying training for parents, track incidents of bullying, and hold three anti-bullying events each year.
