Spend a STEAMy Summer with the STEM Staff
*Check out the alliteration 🙂 We are already having fun!
NO Zoom! NO Schoology! NO IXLs! NO homework!
Just a summer of hands on fun and camaraderie – this is NOT your average summer school 🙂
Your STEM teachers have lined up a TON of fun, hands on project based activities that you don’t want to miss out on!
Build and launch your own rocket, build a bridge, paint a mural on a school wall, design and build a lighting solution, create and play your own board game, learn how to make elephant toothpaste, challenge a teacher to a potato sack race, join a book club, learn about forensic science and investigate a crime scene, and this is only half of what we have planned!
Are you excited yet? We are!
Don’t be bored this summer, fill out the Summer Camp application linked here and come have fun with us and your classmates.

This application is for current 6th and 7th graders ONLY. If you are a 5th grade student, do not fill out this application.
Nominations have now opened for the 2021 Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year Students Choice Award.
This annual award is sponsored by the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce and presented by LaFontaine Automotive Group. The nomination deadline is Friday, May 28, 2021 at 5 p.m. The online nomination form can be found at http://bit.ly/DbnTOY2021.
Paper nomination forms can be printed from the district website or picked up at any Dearborn Public School or the District’s Administrative Service Center, 18700 Audette St., Dearborn. Completed forms can be dropped off or mailed to the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce, 22100 Michigan Ave., Dearborn, MI 48124 or faxed to (313) 584-9818. Adults may assist students in completing nominations when necessary. No more than two teachers may be nominated per student.
Although the district appreciates all the hard work that parents have done this past year to be an active part of their child’s education, this award honors our Dearborn Public Schools teachers. Students may nominate any new or veteran teacher whom they feel has made an outstanding contribution to the teaching profession. Preschool through second grade students are asked to describe how their teacher makes learning fun. Students in this category can include a nice drawing, if they wish, but it will not be part of the selection process. Third through fifth grade students must describe how their teacher has created a classroom where learning is positive and fun. Middle school students (grades 6-8) are asked to explain how their teacher connects classroom learning with everyday life. Students in high school must describe how their teacher is preparing them to be college and career ready.
“In a year where every teacher is deserving of this award, I hope many of our students will take a few moments to nominate their favorite teacher. Nominating a teacher for this award is a great way to honor them and show appreciation for the work they have done to create a meaningful educational experience in the virtual, hybrid, and in-person classroom,” said Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Glenn Maleyko.
Applications will be assessed on the quality of the nomination, not on the number received. Award judges are members of the Dearborn Area Chamber of Commerce Education Committee and are not provided with the teachers’ names. One winner from each category will be announced at a special ceremony to be held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center on Thursday, Sept. 23 at 4:15 p.m. The Chamber of Commerce delayed this year’s nominations and celebration hoping COVID conditions will improve to allow for an in-person awards announcement in the fall.
Teachers selected to receive the Teacher of Year Award are recognized as positive role models who consistently provide unique, productive, positive classroom experiences. Winning teachers receive a $1,000 cash prize and a glass award commemorating their achievement. They also will join a select group of Dearborn teachers who have been recognized by the community for their dedication and passion for teaching.
“I want to thank the Chamber of Commerce and all the sponsors for once again providing this event,” Dr. Maleyko added. “Our district is very fortunate to have so many great community partners.”

Testing started off with some bumps and glitches, but overall has gone very well.
8th graders have completed the science parts 1 and 2 test and most of the 6th and 7th graders have finished the ELA test.
Thursday and Friday 8th graders will take the social studies test and 6th and 7th graders will now take the MATH test. We are ahead of schedule!
That means we will be done M-STEP testing this week and there will be NO testing next week.
Next week will go back to normal school with no asynchronous days.
Attached is the order form for the 2021 class t-shirt. If you attend school in person, Ms. Bissonette and I will also hand a hard copy out today and tomorrow.
If you would like to order a shirt or hoodie, please fill out and return the form to Ms. Fryzel no later than THURSDAY, MAY 6TH.
Please make checks payable to cash or please have the EXACT amount in cash.

Due: Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 3:00 pm
Building internet and phones are down on the Dearborn heights campus. B group students still need to report to the building. A group students will not remote in and should work on late work and projects. We will keep you updated.
The district offers students the opportunity to test out of high school courses by completing an exam which is given at the end of the school year. While students may test out of any course, I recommend that if your child can read, write and speak a language other than English, that they attempt the test-out for World Language.
8th grade students who did not pass the Algebra I midterm exam may also take the test out for that course as well. To attend DCMST, students must have Algebra I credit.
If they pass the test, they will be granted .5 credit for each test they pass up to 1 credit. To graduate from high school, Dearborn students must earn 23 credits total. Two of those credits need to be World Language.
If you would like for your child to participate in the test out, please fill in this short form so I can enroll them. The test will be given on Wednesday, June 16 at ASC. The deadline to register is May 3.
Here is the link to the form to register https://forms.gle/EUdt8qJrAJ5rfA8T8.
