These students earned cadet pins in instrumental class!

February 21, 2019 @ 6:00 in the library a representative from Camp Tamarack will be here to discuss with parents(only) the activities/cost associated with camp, and to answer any questions you may have.   At a later date, a note will come home regarding chaperoning and registration.  5th grade camp is May 21-23, 2019.   Hope to see you all next week!

The assembly scheduled for yesterday is happening today!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you had a great day at home! Maybe you were able to carve out some extra time to study for your math test, and read some using your Read Theory account!  Tomorrow we will take our math test, continue to review for our social studies test, and share our Valentine cards with our friends.  See you all tomorrow!

Remember to bring your instrument for the Bryant sectionals today!  Instrument meets from 1:00-2:00.

Due to a high interest in Dearborn’s STEM Middle School, the STEM administration wanted to share the following information with families interested in STEM.  If you have any further questions, they ask that you visit their blog at : (https://stem.dearbornschools.org/)

The message reads as follows:

STEM Middle School would like to thank everyone for their interest in attending our school for the 2019-2020 school year.  To answer the most popular question we hear, there is no application process in order to be considered for STEM for those students who attend Dearborn Public Schools; instead, invitations will be sent out to all those 5th grade students in the district that are found to be eligible.  To be eligible students must have the following:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP.

Our hope is to have invitations sent out to all eligible 5th grade students by the end of February.  From there, students who receive an invitation and indicate that they are interested in actually attending STEM in the fall, will be selected by lottery.  We will accept a final number of 60 students in to our 2019-2020 6th grade class.

If you live within the Dearborn Public Schools, and do not currently attend a Dearborn Public School, OR you are currently a 6th or 7th grader and would like to apply for a POSSIBLE empty slot, an application will be available on the STEM Middle School website (https://stem.dearbornschools.org/) under the tab “ADMISSIONS” starting in mid-February.   Invitations will be sent out to grade students that meet the below standards:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP

Once again, thank you for your interest in STEM Middle School – a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School for Academic Excellence.

Talent show try-outs have been rescheduled for tomorrow after school until 4:45.  If your child is walking home, please send a note letting Mrs. Lippert know they have permission to walk home at 4:45.  All other students should be picked up by 4:45.  Thank you.
