HEIGHTS – Students of Dearborn Heights Montessori Center celebrated Earth Day Thursday with individual classroom activities and a habitat/school yard cleanup.

Each student also received a special Earth Day T-shirt with a design by fourth-grader Lucy Clements, whose artwork was selected from entries submitted by the school’s elementary and middle school students.

The school, which includes preschool through eighth grade, is at 466 N. John Daly in Dearborn Heights.

It is a non-profit educational community founded in 1972. Now in its fourth decade, DHMC is the largest and longest-established Montessori school in western Wayne County. Programs include preschool, kindergarten, elementary, and middle school as well as summer programs and academic tutoring. Day care and latchkey are also available for enrolled children. In September 2010, DHMC will introduce a Montessori toddler program for ages 18 months through three years.
