Students learned about sound, space, nutrition, nanotechnology, and combustion.  Check out some of our photos!

Read by Third Grade Law

Read by Third Grade Law:
Based on Public Law 306 (October 2016), third grade students who are more than a year below grade level on the state ELA assessment are under consideration for retention in third grade.  Dearborn Public Schools staff in elementary schools have been systematically planning to ensure that teachers have the training to teach reading effectively and that students receive small group instruction based on their needs. The current year second graders are the first group to potentially be impacted by the legislation.
You are invited to join the district task force to strengthen the planning process and to ensure that the community is informed and engaged in the success of every student.
If you would like to participate, please complete the survey.

Exact Path

Exact Path is an EXCELLENT resource for students to practice their Reading, Writing, and Language skills.  Exact Path lessons are based on students’ NWEA scores.  In addition to classwork, Exact Path will give students the opportunity to practice the skills they need to reach their goals on NWEA in January.

Students can now access Exact Path through Clever from the district website by following a few simple steps.

I also want students using Zearn for math.  Zearn is great because it goes right along with our math.
