Animal reports

We are making an informational book about Michigan animals that Scholastic will publish into a bound book for us.  Students chose an animal today in class, and gathered notes, if they didn’t finish today they need to finish up at home this weekend.  These are the primary website we used today. We will do the writing from our notes next week in class.  The future book will be mailed on Thursday!  Thank you for your help.

Valentine’s Day

Dear Families,                                         February 8, 2019

We will be having a Valentine’s Day party on Wednesday February 13th.  Student who would like to bring in Valentine’s Day cards for other students may do so.  If you and your child decide to give cards I ask that one is given to each child and your child fill out the cards with their name and the receivers’ name.  This is good handwriting practice!  Also, if students would like to bring in a bag of candy or treats we will make goody bags.  We have done this in the past and it has worked out very nicely. Thank you for your generosity.

 

Student names are listed below.

 

Raydan, Saba, Ahmed, Iyah, Hussain, Alayna, Heather, Hadi, Hussein, Hawraa, Mariam E., Mustafa, Slwa, Alex, Souad, Bayanne, Sakher, Mariam M., Moshal, Maram, Layan, Nafaa

Donations for the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

Our Book Buddies in Mrs. Mehrhof’s room are collecting for a project. If you can donate that would be great! Thank you.

From Mrs. Mehrhof….
Hello Everyone!
The Oakman Young 5s are beginning a community project for the month of February. We are calling it “Making Critters Comfy”. We are collecting used blankets, towels, and small rugs for the homeless animals at the Dearborn Shelter. This is a no-kill shelter that works hard to find stray and abandoned animals a forever home. Currently they have over 20 dogs and many cats. We will drop off the items we collect on Feb. 26th after school. Please help us help these animals feel the comfort of a soft place to rest. You can bring your donations to to room 106.

Or, you can send them in with your child and we can get them to Mrs. Mehrhof. Thanks again!

January 29

NO school tomorrow!

Hello All,

A message sent on behalf of Superintendent Maleyko-

Due to extreme temperatures and wind chills all Dearborn Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.

If weather conditions persist as predicted, the district will most likely remain closed. However, a decision on the status of school for Thursday will be made at a later time and most likely shared with the community on Wednesday.

Please be careful and dress appropriately if you are headed outside.
