What is Girls on the Run?
Girls on the Run is a curriculum-based program, making it so much more than a running program! The coaches will be teaching life skills to the girls using dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games.  Lesson topics include resisting peer-pressure, making healthy decisions, and contributing to the community.  The program ends with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K (3.1 mile) event on SundayMay 17th at Eastern Michigan University.

 Estabrook Balanced Calendar Survey

Dear Estabrook Families,

As you may be aware, Ypsilanti Community Schools Board of Education approved the pilot of a balanced calendar school beginning fall 2014. This calendar is currently being piloted at Holmes Elementary School. As part of this approval, the committee recommended that this option be considered for Estabrook beginning the 2015-2016 school year.

As we formulate our next steps, we want to gather some input from our current Estabrook school community. Here are a few basic descriptions of a balanced calendar and how a balanced calendar compares to a traditional calendar:

What is a balanced calendar?
-A balanced calendar is an educational program traditionally offered on a nine-month calendar, offered through the 11-12 months of a year.

Does a balanced calendar require students to be in school for more calendar days?
-No, the balanced calendar does not mean that students attend school all year. Instead, it means that your child’s 184 days of instruction are divided more evenly into four sessions. This alternative calendar realigns the 12-week summer vacation so that there are shorter, more frequent breaks throughout the year. Each session lasts about 12 weeks (or 60 days) and is followed by a vacation of approximately three weeks. One of those three weeks will be an “Intersession” designated to provide enrichment, remediation and/or acceleration courses to our students. Common vacation times, such as Winter Break, Thanksgiving and Labor Day, are maintained.

Please complete this brief survey! Thank you in advance for your input on this very important decision.
