Welcome students and parents!
I hope you all had a restful and joyful summer. My name is Ms. Islam and I will be your fifth grade teacher fo the 20-21 school year. I might already know some of you since our classrooms were right next to each other. But, nonetheless, I can’t wait to meet you all and start this school year. I know you are probably anxious and have so many questions. We will take it day by day and adjust to this new way of learning online. We don’t have the answers to everything yet but whenever we get updates we will share that information with you. Please be patient and don’t worry if things don’t go as usual. We are all in this together.
We will be calling you all one by one to introduce ourselves and to tell you a little bit about how this week will go. While you are waiting for my phone call, I want you to work on the assignments for each day that are linked in the google doc below. There is an activity for each day that I would like for you all to complete.

While you are waiting, I also want you to join the Remind app for my class. You must download the app and then create an account with your email or phone numbers. Once you’ve done that, you must enter in this code to join: @kbfehb.
The following a message from our principal, Ms. Zreik. Please be sure to read this through with your parents. There are some very important information on this document regarding this new school year. Thank you and can’t wait to meet you all!
Parent Letter Welcome Back
Please read the following “Welcome Back” letter which contains important information regarding how our school year will begin. 🙂
Parent Letter Welcome Back
Dear Becker Families,
On Monday, August 10 the Board of Education approved a plan for all Dearborn Public School students to return to school on-line. Students from kindergarten through high school will take classes online at least until sometime around the beginning of October. The board will reevaluate conditions later in September to see if it is possible for some or all students to begin returning to their classrooms perhaps in a blended model of in-class and on-line learning.
The District understands there are parents who want their children in a 100% virtual learning program no matter what phase the State is in or how other students in the District are attending school. For the parents who want a 100% on-line option for the entire school year, the school district has created the Dearborn Virtual Learning Program for students K-12. Parents selecting this option are opting their children into the program for a one-year commitment.
In order to meet staffing, transportation, and several other components of our new school environment, it is vitally important to know how many students will join the Virtual Program. Parents seeking more information and/or are interested in opting their child(ren) into this program are highly encouraged to visit our school on Wednesday, August 12 between 10:00-3:00.
School administrators will be on hand (social distancing, limited numbers, and masks will be enforced) on Wednesday, August 12 from 10:00-3:00 to meet with parents. If you have children at different grade levels and buildings, you do not need to attend meetings at multiple schools. Opt-in forms will be available and parents can opt-in all their children at one location. Here is a link to the complete schedule of schools and meetings.
If you are not comfortable meeting in a safe environment at the school or are unable to attend on one of the scheduled days, please call or email the school so we may discuss this option and begin the opt-in process for your children. We can be reached at (313)827-6950.
We understand there are many questions, concerns, and uncertainties as we approach the start of the school year. Our Back to School Reopen Committee has spent many hours considering all of the health, safety, logistical, and educational concerns before making their recommendations. Our Board spent many hours reviewing those recommendations including a six hour Study Session to hear from the various sub-committees and stakeholders. We are now ready to move forward, together, to ensure what will be an interesting, but great, start to the 2020-21 school year.
