Congratulations! You have made it another week! If you are like me, you are finding multiple ways to multitask with little ones running all over the house as well as trying to homeschool them! Keeping you all in my thoughts and hoping you are all healthy.

Parents have a survey today. A survey will be sent out at 11 am. The students that did not fill out the survey yesterday, need to fill it out today. Half the 8th graders, almost half the 7th graders and very few 6th graders filled out their surveys yesterday. Those that did submit them are providing some helpful feedback. I ask that this be done ASAP. Thank you!

Any students that have not submitted iLearn work or other projects yet, please email me today once complete so I can mark off your task as complete in Student Connect.

6th grade (A Day): Please check Google Classroom for a survey. You will need some information from your parents/guardians to fill it out. Use today as an opportunity to review German Quizlets posted earlier on Google Classroom. If you have missing iLearn work or German projects, email me that you have completed it.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

On Google Classroom, the survey has been corrected because there was one question that had a setting that needed to be changed. Thanks everyone!

Additional News: We will be distributing on the Notre Dame side of the building – drive through style – outside of door 17. 
Dearborn Schools has announced that O.L. Smith will be added as a student meal distribution site starting on Monday, March 23.

Students, parents or a family representative can stop by any of meal locations from 10 a.m. to noon each week day to pick up meals.  One bag will be handed out for each child under 18 in the home.  The Dearborn School student does not need to attend school at that building.  Students do not need to be present, and a designated person can pick up meals for all the children in the family.
The free grab-and-go meals include food for lunch and breakfast.  Meals for Saturday and Sunday can be picked up on Friday.  
Six other food sites opened on Tuesday, including Fordson, Edsel Ford and Dearborn high schools; McCollough-Unis; Salina Intermediate; and Woodworth Middle School.
Signage at each site will direct parents and students to where to enter the building.  Food will be near entrances, usually near the kitchen, to minimize the amount of time community members spend in the facilities.

The grab-and-go meals will be served at least through April 3.

Update: The district has recommended that food services add another site to our emergency feeding program.  Smith is the school that has been selected to start on Monday, March 23.

The district is also waiting for all students to have access to Chromebooks. Parents will be notified of this within the upcoming week. During this time, teachers are being asked to provide enrichment activities. I will still be waiting for 6th grade to submit their German projects, 7th grade to submit animal projects & 8th grade to continue studying for their Ch. 4 Vocab 1 Quiz (postponed until further notice). Follow the directions for project submission found in earlier iBlog posts. On Wednesday, March 18th, I ask for students to read an article from “Newsela.” Respond to the writing prompt & 4 questions. All students must be completing daily assignments. Thank you! Stay healthy!

6th Grade Exploring Languages (A Day): We have learned about German greetings, numbers 1-10, colors, days & months. Students also learned about family & body vocabulary last class. I ask that students continue to work on their German Family & Body Vocabulary projects. Directions are posted below. The packet is also posted below if students left it in their lockers (posted today on Google Classroom). Vocabulary can be found on page 6. If students created the project already on a poster or paper, you can email me the picture(s) of it for me to evaluate (jedrzem@dearbornschools.org). You can also text me the picture of your project to this phone number: 1-248-716-5358. If you haven’t started, you are able to create the project on Google Slides & then email it to me. Follow the directions below for the project (Date posted: March 10th). When you are complete with the project, you can read through the PowerPoint on Germany (posted today). Continue to practice on Quizlet.com (German study sets were posted on March 2nd below). Students will still be expected to take a German test online next week. Directions will be posted on a later date.

7th Grade Conversational Spanish classes: Make sure all animals projects are turned in. See yesterday’s post for directions. Today, go to iLearn and open up “Unit 2 Notes.” Copy 2.3 in your notebooks (Scroll down to the 3rd & 4th page). Then open up “Unit 2 Book Pages” and read through pages 58-60. You will be completing activities tomorrow on iLearn. Finally, Study 2.3 on Quizlet (posted March 5th). Study using “Learn” and change the options in the lower left corner to answer in Spanish. You will be taking a quiz on iLearn from home soon.

8th grade Yearlong:  Students will take the Ch. 4 Vocab 1 quiz (eventually) using iLearn. Study Quizlet sets posted on Google Classroom (posted: March 5th). You can use the Quizizz to study as well (posted March 10th). Today, copy down Ch. 4 Grammar 1 (tener) notes found in iLearn: ¡Exprésate! Notas y Tarea. Watch the “Tener” video. Watch the “goofy” student generated “Tener Video #1.” Then open up “Ch. 4 Book Pages” and preview page 126.
