  • When an adult (other than the parent) that is listed on a student's Emergency Contact/Medical page in PowerSchool comes in to pick up a student and take them out of the building, the following procedure must be followed:
     
    1.  the parent(s) must be called before the student can leave; mom and/or dad need to give approval for the student to be taken by anyone other than the parents
     
    2.  if neither mom nor dad can be reached for approval, the student must leave a message with one or both parents

  • When a student is leaving school early for any reason, a parent/guardian must give permission every time.  So, when a student is being signed out by anyone other than the parent/guardian or someone on the emergency contacts list, the parent/guardian needs to send in a note ahead of time or call the Guidance Office at 734-439-5209 to let them know that someone else is picking their student up and that they have permission to do so.  This will confirm that the parent/guardian is aware of the situation and will allow for pick-ups from grandparents, siblings or others to help parents out in unique or sudden situations.

  • ELA

    Updated 3/11/19

    Students are continuing to work on Source Reliability and research for 20Time/Genius Hour. Students will be assessed in authority, URL validity, credibility, and accuracy on Monday, 3/18. Due to the many snow days and how far behind we are as a result (9 snow days equals many more than 9 days due to having to reestablish routines and expectations), we are getting less time for this unit than I would usually give. Students will have had several days to practice with the full group and independently, but students will be permitted to also use an evaluation of their research from next week for a reassessment, if necessary. 

    Next week, students will visit the library to conduct research to support their 20Time/Genius Hour projects. Then, it's spring break! Once we return from break, the focus will be on short text excerpts, independent reading, and story elements.

    20Time: Please support your students at home with their projects as it is a significant undertaking and learning experience. 

    **Students need to bring their Chromebook, charger, ear buds, and a silent reading book each day.

  • Science

     

     2/25

     

    Over the last few days we watched the documentary, Titanoboa: Monster Snake.  This documentary is my favorite way in introduce our next areas of study: fossils and evolution. The video follows a group of scientists as they take a newly discovered fossil through the scientific process and make inferences about a 60 million year-old snake and the environment in which it thrived. 

     

    This week we will also be getting our new workbooks, The Diversity of Living Things. Students will be expected to have this workbook at class everyday. 

     

    Grades in Powerschool are currently up to date including missing assignments.
