Wayne County Regional Enhancement Education Millage Proposal

 

School districts in Wayne County have placed a proposal on the November 8th ballot to provide added funding for our schools. It is the “Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal.”

If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools.  Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years.

Fabulous Friday at Long!

Today was a fabulous way to end September. It was our first Popcorn Day and the Popcorn Crew did a great job. What a wonderful smell!
Mrs. Denison’s first grade class officially met for the first time today and the other class changes occurred as well. It was a very smooth transition thanks to the Long School staff and community. We are excited to have this opportunity to give our younger learners more time with their teachers by reducing class sizes in Kindergarten and first grade.

Earlier this week, our GSRP students joined us. Mrs. Kubitz is keeping them very busy!

What a great first week! Thank you everyone. We welcomed our Kindergartners and many other new faces. Our PTA hosted our annual Boo Hoo Breakfast. Several preschool programs began this week and others will be starting soon.

Long School was honored to host a visit from Randi Weingarten, National President of the American Federation of Teachers and David Hecker, President of the Michigan Federation of Teachers. Randi and David visited classrooms speaking with both students and staff regarding the start of the school year.
