Hello! The year is quickly winding down. Thank you for your responses for the class picnic! It is so appreciated! If you would still like to donate, please send the form back by May 31st.

PROM: I believe there is still time to sign up for the prom. All information was sent home a few weeks ago, but they have extended the RSVP date so that more people can attend. I would not hesitate, as this may close soon. If there are any questions, please contact Eman Naura at naurae@dearbornschools.org

PLANNERS: You will be receiving a note about planners for the 2022-2023 school year. We are going to place a bulk order with a planner company so that every student has the correct planner and it will be much less expensive than purchasing one from the store. Please send in $5 to cover the cost of the planner by May 31st, so that we can order them and have them ready for the fall.

ZUMBA! Ms. Susan will be back to offer a Zumba class to our students in June! (Details will follow soon.) Additionally, she has created a “Fitness for All” program at her studio in Allen Park. The class will consist of 30 minutes of beginner dance fitness and 30 minutes of beginner slow flow yoga with a licensed yoga teacher and special educator. Friends, family members and care-givers are welcome! I have known Ms. Susan for almost 10 years and I can’t speak highly enough about her! She is amazing and I have no doubt this program will be amazing as well. Check it out! The kick off is May 25, in studio or virtual, and classes will be every Wednesday beginning June 15 after that. If you would like further information, please call the studio at 734-658-6232 and tell her you’re in Mrs. Camp’s class! (Flyers will be coming home today as well)

MEDICATIONS: If your student requires life-saving medications (asthma, seizures, epi-pens, etc.) they should have those in their backpack or locked in a drawer here in the classroom. If your son/daughter has a medical emergency and they are without their medication we will have to call 911.

Upcoming Dates:

May 27-30 No School – Memorial Day Weekend

May 31st – Field Day – Please wear tennis shoes, sunscreen, etc.

June 8 – Zumba Party

June 8 – Prom

Hello! Just a few quick updates:

Circles: We started the Circles Curriculum today – which is a social boundaries curriculum that teaches the appropriate social interactions between students and various family or community members. Most students are familiar with this concept as Level 1 is taught in Ms. True’s room and we continue with Level 2. Today we discussed the six circles (self, close family, close friends, acquaintances, community helpers and strangers) and appropriate interactions with each. We will be discussing appropriate talk and touch within each group (ex: hug or handshake), and we will discuss what to do if someone touches them inappropriately. Everything is rated “PG”. We will also be talking about Social Media and Internet safety at this time. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call.

Prom: I just received word that the prom for students with special needs will be held on June 8 from 6-9:30 p.m. at Byblos Banquet Hall on Chase in Dearborn. I will pass along information as I receive it. This event is sponsored by the Fordson High School Interact Club.

Kleenex: Thank you so much to those of you who sent in kleenex! It is very much appreciated!

Upcoming Dates:

May 2-3 – No School, EID

May 11 – Late Start

May 27-30 – No School – Memorial Day

Students will be placed on the bus if we do not hear from you. As always, pick up time must be at or before normal dismissal time. Thank you for your cooperation.

Upcoming Dates:

April 13 – Late Start

April 15 – No School

May 2-3 – No School, EID

May 11 – Late Start

Hello! Just a few updates before we head off for Spring Break!

Chromebooks: Please call or email Howe School with the computer asset tag number on your borrowed chromebook. We were alerted by computer services that chromebooks without those numbers will be deactivated in -the near future. Howe’s number is – 313-827-7000 or you can email Bernadette Drennon at drennob@dearbornschools.org

Coffee Club: When we return we will start a coffee club! It’s a small way to get some practical daily living skills in – but it is completely optional. The district bought us a keurig, kcups, and coffee cups to get us started. With class funds, we purchased sugar, creamer and coffee stirrers. Students who wish to have a coffee break will bring $1 on Friday’s. We will use that money to replenish our supplies as needed.

Upcoming Dates:

April 4 – Return to school

April 13 – Late Start + CBI

April 15 – No School – Good Friday

May 2-3 – No School – EID

Hello Families,

During the school shut down, it was necessary for our staff to contact you using their personal cell phones. On occasion, they still may do so during school hours, for your convenience. If you absolutely need to contact a staff member directly, this is just a friendly reminder to please respect the school hours when doing so. It would be preferred that you call the school phone and ask for the staff member you wish to speak to, but if it is necessary to contact them directly, please do so between the hours of 8:30 and 3:20, also being respectful not to contact them on weekends or vacations. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and cooperation in this matter!

Also, please know, we never give our personal numbers to students. Some students seem to have found them off of parents phones over the course of the last two years. We will be changing those numbers to our classroom phone when we see them, and they are welcome to call or text the classroom phone if they are trying to reach us. Thank you so much for your understanding.

Happy Spring! It’s so exciting to see the sunshine and hints at the warmer weather to come! We will be going outside when we get the chance, so students should bring jackets or wear layers so they will not get cold. Also, if you have a student who is sensitive to the sun, you may wish to apply sunscreen in the morning. (There is a covered picnic area for shade)

Thursday is Subway Day! Students will receive a 6″ sub, chips and a cookie for $1. Please be sure to send in $1 for your student by Wednesday March 23rd. Students will still need to bring a drink that day.
