Board Approves Revised 2018-2019 Academic Calendar; New Spring Break Dates Are April 1-5

On Tuesday evening, August 14, the Detroit Board of Education approved a revised academic calendar for the 2018-2019 school year. It includes a new set of dates for spring break: April 1-5. The previous academic calendar outlined April 19-26 as a break.

It is unfortunate that the dates were changed, however, the district needed to comply with the Wayne RESA common calendar and student testing schedules. The revised calendar also eliminates one-hour-early releases on Wednesdays.

An awesome time had by all during the "For the Teachers, By the Teachers" 4th Annual Teachers Appreciation Gala on June 16. Detroit Police Chief James Craig was keynote speaker.

The meal was delightful, the band was entertaining and laughter filled the air. The speakers’ inspirational stories gave motivation to the career we hold so dear. The Teachers, the sponsors, the speakers and the entertainment were acknowledged at the 4th Annual Teachers Appreciation Gala planned "For the Teachers, By the Teachers."
