DETROIT (Tell Us Det) – More than two dozen Ministers’ Wives joined together Saturday morning to sign a first-ever pledge to support DPS schools on the First Day of Teaching and Learning, and invest in long-term partnerships with schools. A breakfast was held at Detroit International Academy to earmark the-is important event.

Each of the attending guest signed a large poster-size first-ever public pledge to be present on opening day of school and invest in long term partnerships with local schools. The pledge was signed following at Detroit International Academy, DPS’ and Michigan’s only all-girls public K-12 school. Another example of the women’s group commitment to stay involved in the 2012 Enrollment and Successful Opening of Schools Campaign.

Saturday’s event is the first public kickoff of Detroit Public Schools’ month-long campaign, which includes hundreds of school-based events showcasing programs and community partners, an intensive neighborhood by neighborhood grassroots campaign, a week packed with popular citywide events including the annual Woodward Ave. Back-to-School parade, and brand new partnerships with faith-based organizations.

The campaign lasts now through the first day of school on September 4. Go to www.detroitk12.org/DPSWEEK
