DEARBORN – For the last 66 years, Dearborn Public Schools students have promoted the city with Clean Up parades around their schools. The promotion of these annual events in addition to other environmentally-friendly events will continue through May 24.
The parades, which have evolved over the years, continued to expand the message beyond motivating residents to cut their lawns, pick up litter and paint their houses. The students now include sustainability messages in each theme and activity.
The parades are sponsored by the City Beautiful Commission and supported by the city of Dearborn, the Dearborn Public Schools, parochial and charter schools. Below is a list for the remaining school parades for 2018:
