We will be hosting our annual Science Fair in March.  Unis students will be working on their projects at school over the next few weeks, but will need to complete some work outside of school. We have created a link on our webpage under our “Parent & Student Resources” menu of this blog. There you will be able to access all of the handouts and assignments that will be required during this project.  Join us here!

Dearborn’s New NWEA Practice Website

Did you know that you and your student can view videos and complete practice online that meets their individual needs?  Nwea practice picDearborn Public Schools has a website dedicated to practice related to each strand and goal range.  By visiting the site, your student can click a link to specific Khan Academy videos.  Once in Khan Academy, your student can watch videos, work on practice problems, and review with flashcards and games.  This website also gives you links to games and other resources based on RIT score. Your student has been working with their teachers to be knowledgeable of their RIT scores.  All students have also registered for their own Khan Academy accounts.  Students should be practicing these skills as much as possible to grow in their goal areas.
