Dearborn Public Schools

Thank You

I would like to take a moment to thank you for your effort and support throughout the year. I had the pleasure working with all of you. We had an amazing group of students, tried their best and I encourage to continue working on I ready, Zearn and complete the math packet in the summer.
I will miss you and stay safe.
See you soon.

Weekly Focus

I can’t believe we are down to the last week of school. This week will be lighter as far as the workload. 

Students will be expected to complete the IReady diagnostic test. This is important for students to try their best without any assistance in order to accurately assess student growth. Once the test is complete, students will be able to follow their new individualized IReady path. 

For math, please complete one Zearn lesson a day. 

There will not be anything for social studies or science

Message from Mr. Awada

Good Afternoon Miller Families,

Hope this email finds you and loved ones in good health and spirits. I take this opportunity to thank each of you for the unwavering support you continue giving your child and our learning community during these unprecedented times. We’ve all had to make adjustments over the last three months that were unexpected, not perfect and stressful at times, but the Miller Community responded with unwavering support and steadfast patience and Team Miller THANKS YOU!

Many unanswered questions remain about next year and a committee comprised of district leadership, staff, students, and parents are diligently working to create multiple plans for varying scenarios that may be possible for reopening school next year. I will be sharing and communicating with the Miller community as decisions become final. Important classroom, school and district information may be found at , please take time to review as needed.
