Summer Homework Expectations and Requirements

This summer, your child is required to complete 120 minutes for Reading and 120 minutes for Math on ExactPath each week over the summer vacation.  Please make sure that your child is completing this requirement because it is very important that your child does not regress over the summer.


To get to ExactPath, go to the Dearborn Public Schools website, click on Student Portal and Click on Clever.  Finally, you will see the ExactPath app, click on the ExactPath icon and you may begin your challenge!

Alongside with the M-Step Testing, we are also NWEA testing in the afternoon.  We are only testing for 30 minutes increments so the students will not get tired.  We will continue to test for NWEA ELA, Math, Language and Science in the next coming weeks.

Arab Heritage Celebration- Friday, May 3, 2019

This past Friday, May 3, 2019, our third grade classrooms had the opportunity to celebrate Arab Heritage Month.  This was a cultivating event to learn more about the different cultures and traditions of our students, staff and family.  It was a great success for everyone to come together and celebrate!  The event included traditional dresses, food, dessert, students’ artwork, pictures, henna tattoos, music, dancing,  henna tattoos, and DABKE!

We want to thank the parents who volunteered to help make this a successful event!  We want to also thank Mrs. Jaber for organizing our first annual Third Grade Arab Heritage Celebration.  Everyone enjoyed this celebration and we have decided to continue this event as a Maples tradition for future years!
