Blue for Bullying

  On Monday, October 6th the students at Cornerstone wore blue for standing up to bullying.  Cornerstone students want Cornerstone to be bully free and the students are helping this happen by being "upstanders."  An "upstander" stands up for themselves and others.  Please help us stop bullying!… Click image for more info ...

News and Notes

Please click HERE to download a pdf of the inaugural edition of the Dexter Community Schools News and Notes, a quarterly electronic newsletter. Over the past year, we’ve been focusing a lot of effort on improving communications.

Our weekly Events Lists provide an at-a-glance summary of major events in the district. Our twice-monthly Community Mailing e-mails are a way for local non-profit school and community groups to share their goings-on with a large audience. The Dread Strong Facebook page is a casual bulletin board where students, parents & teachers cheer each other’s accomplishments and events.

Parent Groups at several buildings have started their own Facebook pages. Superintendent forums have helped staff and families share their short- and long-term goals for the district.

And we’ve added a Talk To Us app to our website, where people can ask questions and raise concerns anonymously or request a personal response.

Last, but certainly not least, we are totally revamping the district website. We hope you will find it informative, attractive, and an accurate reflection of all the wonderful things going on in the Dexter Community School District. Stay tuned for a late fall/early winter launch!
