This is a reminder of the weekly expectations for online learning:
- : Students are required to complete a minimum of 45 minutes each week. I assign a specific lesson each week to help student growth in alignment with Michigan state standards. Students not only need to complete the lessons, but pass them, too. iReady passes students who receive a 70% or higher. I would challenge them to receive an 80% or higher in order to show their understanding of the topic.
- : Students are required to complete a minimum of 45 minutes each week. I assign a specific lesson each week to help student growth in alignment with our current Math focus and Michigan state standards.
- : Students are required to complete work for all subject areas via Google Classroom. I post assignments for each subject on Google Classroom. Please make sure that students submit/turn in their work by the due date each week. Usually that due date is FRIDAY.
As always, thank you for your continued support from home. We are all in this together!
Welcome back to a new week! I hope you’re doing well. We’re all in this together and we stay Dearborn strong!
