Greenfield Village

Our field trip to Greenfield Village is this Tuesday, April 25th. It is an all day field trip so please send a bag lunch with a drink and an extra snack as well. I would also recommend sending a water bottle that they can refill as we move through the Village. It looks like it will be a beautiful, sunny day! Sunscreen  and a hat would be a good idea to keep them protected from the sun. If you are a chaperone, please be at the school no later than 9:00. We will leave as soon as the bus arrives.

NWEA Testing

We will be NWEA testing tomorrow, April 24th, in Math. We will begin at 9:00 a.m. so please make sure that your child arrives on time and has had a good breakfast. Please remind your child that they need to take their time on each question and use their notebook to solve the math problems. They may not go back to double check answers once they click next. I know they will try their best and will work hard to meet their personal goal.

Reminder

We are having our field trip to Ann Arbor Hands on Museum tomorrow.  We will be leaving promptly at 9:00 and will be returning back to school around 2:30.  If you have signed up to be a chaperone, please be here by 9:00.  Please have your child bring a lunch in a bag that we can throw away when we are finished.  Looking forward to having a great trip!

Michigan Immunization Laws

Dear Parents,

The Dearborn Public Schools would like to take this opportunity to remind you about the importance of immunizing your child. Immunizations are one of the most effective measures to protect children from harmful diseases and even death.  All children who attend school in Michigan are required by state law to be fully immunized. 
 
Vaccination is one of the best ways parents can protect infants, children, and teens from 16 potentially harmful viral and bacterial diseases including the following:  Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Bacterial Meningitis, Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Hepatitis B, and Chickenpox.
Vaccine-preventable diseases can be very serious, may require hospitalization, or even be deadly–especially in infants and young children.
Although we have not had any cases of students with Chickenpox in Dearborn Public Schools, the Wayne County Health Department has informed us of several new cases being reported throughout Wayne County. There is no reason to be overly alarmed, but we felt it was important to share this information with our parents.
If you would like more information on immunizing your child and counsel in regards to the health benefits and risks of immunizations, please contact your primary care physician, one of the urgent care facilities in our city, the Wayne County Health Department, or visit  Michigan Department of Health and Human Services website.
Regards,
The Dearborn School Nurses

Math Test

Please make sure that you review the Unit 6 Math Study Guide tonight. Most of the students didn’t finish the test so I will give them time to complete it tomorrow. Also, this will be their opportunity to go back and double check answers.

Math Test Tomorrow

Your child will be taking the Unit 6 Math Test tomorrow. Please look for the Study Guide, it’s in the blue folder. If you would like a blank copy, click on the math tab and you can print it. It is a tricky test, so please go over every problem and help answer any questions your child has.

Field Trip

Please make sure to fill out the permission slip and send in $5 by March 16th if you haven’t done so. The field trip is on March 21st from 9:30-2:30. We will be going to the Ann Arbor Hands on Museum. It should be a lot of fun!
