Updates for April 4 – 12

So, today starts spring break week, you don’t have to school work enrichment during April 6 – 10, I won’t be posting. Enrichment will be continuing April 13 – 17, and the following weeks will most likely be progressive assignments.

I will also add a schedule each day to help plan out your day, you don’t have to follow the schedule, it’s just something to help you get into routine.

I noticed most of you are starting later, and we should meet on zoom in the afternoon.We will next do a zoom meeting on Monday (4.13) afternoon. As of right now, let’s plan on meeting on Zoom on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays, we can change it as is needed. You guys need to reach out to each other, it’s fun and good for your hearts.

I am very proud of all of your hard work these past three weeks! I miss you all so much!

Everyone should be getting an email from EPIC, a book site, I signed up the class because we need it for more books. I hear it’s Netflix for books.

Also, the link below is for podcasts.

I set up a zoom meeting yesterday, I had two students who were able to meet at that time: Ada and Adam (and Adam’s cousin). It was good to catch up and see what they were doing. I am sorry if I missed you!

We will meet again on Friday, check your email for the information, I am thinking morning this time. If you want to contact me, use your school email.

Today is going to be a beautiful March spring day, get outside and play because tomorrow it rains.

I can see some of you are keeping up with each day’s assignments and some of you have been ignoring what was suggested. Please work on each site each day, you have tons of time to play online every day. Don’t forget to read.

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 fournit@dearbornschools.org.

Also, please subscribe to Sarah Puchala’s blog, our Howe Interventionist, I’ve also added her to our links.
