Woodward Avenue Lane to Reopen December 21

The right lane of southbound and northbound Woodward Ave., just south of Lincoln, is temporarily closed for infrastructure enhancement work. A major water main crossing serving this area of Birmingham is being cleaned and inspected. A liner will be installed the week of December 17-21 that will create a new pipe to extend the service life of this critical water main well into the future. The lane will reopen no later than Friday, December 21 at the end of the work day for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

A Perfect 36


Congratulations to Seaholm junior Bennett Pompi for his perfect score on the ACT exam. According to a press release by, “On average, only around one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2017, only 2,760 out of more than 2 million graduates who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.”

The Unabashed Bash Early Bird Tickets

When a teacher has a great idea that will inspire students, but isn’t in the budget, the Birmingham Education Foundation can step in to provide funding.

You are invited to support the Birmingham Education Foundation at their annual Unabashed Bash on February 9, 2019 at The Townsend Hotel. This special fundraising event will feature student entertainment, dinner, dancing, and silent & live auctions. All proceeds will benefit Birmingham Public Schools. Purchase your tickets before January 4 to take advantage of the special $175 early bird ticket price. After January 4, tickets go up to $200.

One of the highlights of the Bash is the auction, which has three parts: online, silent and a live auction at the Bash. The BEF is currently seeking businesses, organizations and individuals who are interested in supporting the BEF and gaining visibility within our community by donating an item. To donate an item, please contact Alison Hendry at (248) 203-3030 or download the auction information.

Sponsoring Bash is another great way to showcase your support for Birmingham Public Schools. You can download the full sponsorship package.

Making a year-end donation to the BEF is one other way to directly impact programs that enrich the educational lives of every child in the district. Your tax-deductible donation will help deliver creativity and innovation to BPS classrooms. To make a gift, visit
