Summer Learning

Posted on Leave a comment

Please read the summer learning program descriptions for all middle school students:

 

The summer school program will take place at Dearborn High School for the middle school students.  This is for students failing two or more classes.  Each student will find his/her own transportation to DHS and has to pay $125 for each summer school class.

Summer blended program will be for students that are two grades below or worse in reading OR did not meet the one year’s growth in reading on the NWEA test.  This will be one day at school and the other four days per week will have the students working at home.  

Third, summer learning will be for all students not in summer school nor summer blended programs. Each student will read 60 minutes per week using MobyMax.  Each student will read three books over the summer.  An index card with relevant book information will be filled out for each book. Each student will prepare a book talk for the teacher in the fall for one of the books.

 
Fourth, for exiting eighth grade students who will enter ninth grade in the fall of the 2017 – 2018 school year, the summer requirements include reading a minimum two books over the summer.  Upon entering high school in the fall, each student will submit a reading chart.  Also, the ninth grade students will have an additional assignment pertaining to the book.

We are seeking TWO HIGHLY ENERGETIC STAFF MEMBERS, STUDENTS, or COMMUNITY MEMBERS with EXCELLENT PUBLIC SPEAKING SKILLS to serve as an EMCEE and a GAME ANNOUNCER from 9:30-6:00. These roles are critical to the success of our event. Currently, no one has volunteered for these two roles. View a description of the roles on p.10 by clicking on the link below:

Greetings McCollough/Unis Community,

As part of our on-going effort to keep an open line of communications I would like to share with you information regarding an incident that occurred in our neighborhood.

On Tuesday morning Dearborn Police were investigating a situation near the railroad tracks located just west of our school. The police did contact the school to assure us that this incident did not involve our school in any way and there was no danger to any students or staff. Police concluded their investigation and our school day proceeded as usual.

We are sharing this information with our community in case you hear the story on local news or in the neighborhood. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at (313) 827-1700.
