It’s time for students to nominate their favorite Dearborn Public Schools teacher for the 2019 Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year Students’ Choice Award, sponsored by the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, and presented by LaFontaine Automotive Group. The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, March 8, 2019 at 5 pm. Nominations forms can be found at the District website at http://dearbornschools.org. An online nomination form is available at http://bit.ly/DbnTeacher2019.
Printed nomination forms may be picked up at any Dearborn public school and the District’s Administration Office, 18700 Audette. They can be dropped off or mailed to the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, 22100 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, MI 48124, or faxed to (313) 584-9818. Adults may assist students in completing nominations when necessary, but no more than two teachers can be nominated per student.
Students may nominate any new or veteran teachers whom they feel hasmade outstanding contributions to the teaching profession. Pre-K through second grade students are asked to describe how their teacher makes learning fun. Students in this category can include a nice drawing, if they wish, but it will not be part of the selection process. Third through fifth grade students must describe how their teacher has created a classroom where learning is positive and fun.
“Nominating a teacher for this award is an outstanding way for students to show their teachers how much they appreciate and value the job they are doing in the classroom and the positive impact they have on their lives. We have so many excellent teachers deserving of this recognition,and I hope many of our students will take a few moments to nominate their favorite teacher,” commented Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko.
Applications will be assessed on the quality of the nomination, not on the number received. Award judges are members of the Dearborn Chamber Education Committee and are not provided with the teachers’ names. One winner from each category will be announced at a special ceremony being held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center on Thursday, April 25, at 4:30 p.m.
Reminder that students are expected to read for 20-30 minutes every day and fill in their Reading Logs and completing their reading responses.

It is your child’s responsibility to make sure he/she is caught up with missing or late homework. If a student is absent, they still need to make up the work. Assignments that are not turned in will effect a student’s grade on report cards.

Students are expected to complete lessons on Zearn.org and Iready daily. This will improve their math and reading. I recommend you sit with your child and help them while they work.
Mobymax is also a recommendation to help with language and reading. This will also improve their learning/ skills.
