We have made it to the final week of school! Take the time to reflect on all the hard work and learning that you have accomplished. This is also a good time to start planning for summer reading and ideas that will prevent learning loss over the long Summer break.
Let’s also take the time end the school year on a positive note by thanking our teachers, parents and friends for their support and guidance throughout the year.
Our robotics team will continue to sell raffle tickets for great prizes. Please support our robotics team! The drawing for the prizes will take place on Thursday… Best of luck to you all!

Setting the expectation for reading EVERYDAY throughout the summer needs to be established in order to reduce summer learning loss. Making regular visits to the public library can be both FUN and BENEFICIAL.
Esper Library is located at 12929 Warren Ave, Dearborn. It is FREE to join and to borrow books. Most libraries also have summer programs that students can join. Consider visiting the library a few times a month or even weekly!
Here are some reading lists that are provided by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, that students may enjoy reading:
We hope you all had a great weekend. Last week marked the start of the NWEA testing window. This is the last round of testing for the year for grades Kindergarten through 5th. We are confident that all our students are striving to meet their goals and end the year with success.
As we approach the end of the school year, students reflecting on their learning and hard work is a great idea. Thinking about the Summer break and making resolutions as well as establishing routines of reading and continued practice are beneficial to minimizing Summer learning loss.
Last week Oakman welcomed this year’s Fordson seniors and cheered them with a huge congratulatory clap out.
