Do You Need A Chromebook?

Hi Everyone,
We will be loaning Chromebooks to Howe students who have a need.  I posted information on our school blog about this.  Pick-up will be Friday, March 20 from 9-11 under the canopy off of Ann Arbor Trail. I would like them to complete this survey to make sure we have enough Chromebooks prepared. Please share this information on your blogs as well. 
Thank you,Tammy

Do You Need A Chromebook?

Teachers have provided daily on-line enrichment activities for students to complete while we are out of school. It has been brought to my attention, that we have some students who do not have access to a computer, tablet, or phone device to participate in these activities. With support from Dearborn Schools, we are extending an opportunity for our students with this need to borrow a Chromebook from Howe School until we return from the shutdown.

Chromebooks will be made available for drive-through pick-up on Friday, March 20 from 9:00-11:00 under the Ann Arbor Trail canopy at Howe School.

At this time we can only provide 1 Chromebook per family to be shared by all Howe students in the family.

You will need to have access to wireless internet or a hotspot to use the Chromebook in your home

A parent MUST be present and sign a copy of this form to receive a Chromebook. The form will be provided at pick-up. Please read for more information.

To reserve a Chromebook:

If you would like to borrow a Chromebook, please complete this form. This will help us to facilitate the process and ensure availability. Remember, you will need to have access to wireless internet or a hot spot to use the Chromebook in your household.

If you have questions regarding Chromebook Lending contact Ms. Fournier at

Book publishing

Backgrounds – We are getting very close to being able to publish our book. I just need a few more things from people. There are still quite a few people who have not turned in their background. These people are still missing it: 1,2, 4, 5, 9, 11, 12, 14, 15, 18, 20, 23, 25. If they do not have their paper they may pick on of the following to color. Backgrounds

Once the background is colored please send me a colored scanned copy of the background in jpeg format. If you are not able to do this I will use one of the other students backgrounds to put on your students. Here are a few to choose from if you can’t sent me your own.

Option 1

Option 2

Option 3

Send me order forms – The other thing I need is a picture of the order form for the book. Please send me a picture of the order form whether or not you are ordering the book. If I get 80% of the forms return they will give us a free book for the classroom. If you are not ordering the book please check the box that you are not ordering and sign the form. Here is a copy of the form.

Cover Art- We need a student do design the cover of our book. If you have an idea for the cover of the book. Please draw it up and send me a jpeg copy. The book title is the Keeber’s ABC of Friendship. Please include the title in your drawing.

In order to insure that everyone continues to learn and doesn’t miss anything I would like to draw attention to how to find today’s work or any days work online. Here is the link to my sub plans. This should have most things that you need attached right to the plans. To find this without the link go to my blog, then Teacher resources, then click on the top link.

If you have any questions or concerns about work please email or send me a ClassDojo message. I will do my best to answer all questions.

Important this week – Make sure your student has completed their Friendship story, and their background for their story. If they did not get their background finished and need a new copy here is a link to the choices. Pick one, color and I need a good color scan or return to the school.
