Levagood Trip Reminders

Here are a few few reminders about the Levagood Trip:
  • Students are reminded to bring any item to Levagood that they would like to use for the day ( bathing suits, towels, basketball, baseball mitt, bat, volleyball, board game, cards, etc). 
  • Students should NOT bring cell phones to the park/pool.  Cell phones must be kept in lockers at school.  The Bryant Cell Phone policy is still in effect for the day.
  • Lockers are available, but students need a dollar in quarters to rent one.
  • Students are encouraged to wear sunscreen.
  • Students should also bring a bag lunch and plenty of water for the day.
  • The concession stand will be open, but it is expensive….plan accordingly.
  • Bathing Suit Attire:  Students should wear a modest swim suit if he/she will be swimming in the pool.  Female students have worn conservative swim wear during PE class this school year, so that swim suit should be worn for the Levagood trip.  Each participant should follow the Bryant Dress Code. 
It’s going to be a great day at the park!  Thank you Bryant PTA, parents and teachers for all your support!

Dearborn Residents Reminded of Laws Related to Fireworks Use

As Fourth of July approaches, Dearborn residents are reminded to follow state and local laws regarding the purchase and use of fireworks, as well as to exercise extreme caution.
Consumer fireworks only allowed on certain days
In addition to low-impact fireworks such as sparklers, there are powerful or airborne fireworks, known as “consumer” fireworks, that are legal for sale and use in Michigan. 
However, the use of consumer fireworks is restricted to the day before, day of, or day after national holidays, such as Fourth of July or the New Year’s holiday. 
Dearborn’s fireworks ordinance also restricts the times that these fireworks may be used on permitted holidays. No use is allowed between the hours of midnight and 8 a.m.  (There is an exception for New Year’s Day only, when the time of use is extended to 1 a.m.)
Dearborn residents are encouraged to call 313-943-3030 to anonymously report unsafe or illegal activity in their neighborhood, or to call 9-1-1 if there is a dangerous or emergency situation. 
Regulations on fireworks, prohibited locations, fines
Other important restrictions apply to consumer fireworks use. Violation of these rules is considered a civil infraction, punishable by fines of up to $500.
All residents should be aware of the following provisions in state and local law related to consumer fireworks use: 
No one is allowed to use fireworks on public properties, including schools, churches, government buildings, city streets and parks. 
No one is allowed to ignite or discharge fireworks in any way that would cause them to land on someone else’s private property without the express consent of the property owners. The responsible party will also be required to pay for any damages caused by the fireworks. 
You cannot discharge fireworks while under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. 
It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to purchase or discharge consumer fireworks. 
Some regulations also apply to the use of low-impact fireworks. Details are outlined in Sec. 14-265 of the City of Dearborn Code of Ordinances. 
In addition to these rules, Dearborn Police will still enforce the city’s noise and littering ordinances, within the provisions of the state law, and issue violations when necessary. 
Residents urged to use caution
Even though powerful fireworks are legal in Michigan, their use still carries the same potential dangers and liabilities. Every year, thousands of dollars in property damage is reported due to fires caused by the unsafe use of fireworks. 
Additionally, it is estimated that 200 people per day go to the emergency room for fireworks-related injuries during the period surrounding the Fourth of July. 
To avoid serious injuries, residents are asked to exercise caution when discharging fireworks. Guidelines from the Consumer Product Safety Commission can be found on www.cpsc.gov/fireworks.
Remember you will be held responsible for any injury or property damage caused by discharging fireworks. 

6th & 7th Grade Levagood Park Field Trip Wednesday June 13th | Volunteers and Donations Needed


Mrs. Griffin has been working hard to plan a great trip to Levagood park for the 6th & 7th-grade students on Wednesday, June 13th. To help with more participation and better flow, stations are being set-up for students that would like to do other things besides swim.

In order for these stations to work, we need plenty of Parent Volunteers to help run each station – which is broken into two shifts per station.

Please see the Sign-Up Genius to donate and/or volunteer. Let’s make this fun for the kids!


Thank you!
