Updated School work schedule

Posted on

I am hearing from some of the students and the parents that the workload is too much. I made some adjustments. Instead of going on Mobymax, I want you to go on Edmentum (black e) like we do in class. You access that through Clever. Also, I shortened the time that I want you on there from 45 mins to 30 mins. As of right now no more social studies until next week.

Online Learning

Posted on

Good morning and welcome to our first week of remote (online) learning. For the next three weeks we will be conducting class from home. Routines are crucial for children, so I have included a schedule for the week. Our daily school schedule includes academic time as well as recess, lunch, and time for specials as well. This schedule is just a suggestion. I have 2 children in school myself who will all now be taught at home with 3 different curriculums, so I do understand that time has to be managed between the electronics for all of your children. I miss you all already!

Also, please watch Class Dojo closely as I know our specials teachers will be performing class time online as well. This includes music, gym, media, enrichment, and art.

I will be monitoring students’ progress online every day and I will contact you through Class Dojo with any concerns. If you have any questions regarding what is expected or need help logging into any of our online platforms, please send me a Class Dojo message. This will yield the quickest response. Weekly schedule is found below. Just click the blue link.

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 3rd grade! I hope you all had a wonderful summer with family and friends. I am so excited that school has begun and that learning is in full swing. This week will be filled with a lot of rules, routines, getting to know one another activities and of course learning! 

I want to tell you a little bit about myself for those of you who have not met me yet. I have been teaching in Dearborn for 18 years now. I have taught 1st-4th grade and I have also been a technology teacher. I have my Master’s Degree in technology and a second Master’s in English as a Second Language. I love learning new ways to help my students become the best students they can be.

I am looking forward to having a great year with your child. I know that by working together, your child will continue to learn and grow up to be a responsible, smart and independent individual. I truly believe in the saying “It takes a community to raise a child”. With that being said, I really need your support at home in order to make this year run smoothly and successfully! I can’t wait to meet all of you at the upcoming Open House.


Ms. Erickson
