March PTA News
February was a great month for the PTA for many reasons. We had a huge Core Value Assembly and 100 students were honored for Students of the Month, Bucketfilling and Math Masters. We will have another assembly in April after the next marking period. Students please keep studying your math facts, be good citizens and read read read! Maybe you will be chosen next time. The PTA provided each student honored with a bookmark, pencil and Awada bucks to spend at the school store which is every Thursday.
The math parent meetings in February were well attended. Thank you to all the parents that came and supported Oakman staff to learn about our math program so you can help your child excel at home.
Join us each Tuesday and Thursday in March for Parent Talk with Ms. Margaret King Ahmad to learn effective parenting skills.
Valentine Candygrams were a hit as usual and our Friday popcorn sales are generating weekly funds to help support Oakman School’s needs.
Lastly, check out our school’s main blog for pictures posted! We had a great time at the annual Founder’s Day celebration. Oakman School had two tables of parent volunteers attend with Mr. Awada and staff. What a great night we had. Mr. Awada and Ms. L Faraj won baskets from the raffle. Congratulations!
Stay tuned in March for Literacy Night, Bake and Popcorn Sales as well as the School Store. Your support helps students and staff meet their educational goals.

Click on the link above to print the application to nominate your child’s teacher. Please print clearly and put your heart into your nomination. Oakman teachers deserve it! You can leave the nomination in my mailbox in the office and I will mail them to the Dearborn Chamber of Commerce by April 12th.
It is now easier than ever to nominate your favorite Dearborn Public Schools teacher to be selected as the 2012-13 Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year. The new on-line entry form can be found by visiting https://dearbornschools.org/toy . Forms can also be downloaded at the same website or can be picked up at any Dearborn public school and the district’s Administration Office, 18700 Audette.
The deadline for submitting nominations, either on-line or hard-copy, is Friday, April 12, 2013. Hard-copy nomination forms can be mailed to the Dearborn Chamber of Commerce, 22100 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn, MI 48124, or fax to (313) 584-9818. Adults may assist students when necessary but no more than two teachers can be nominated per student.
Students can nominate new or veteran teachers whom they feel have made outstanding contributions to the teaching profession. Preschool through fifth-grade students are asked to describe how their teacher has created a classroom where learning is positive and fun. Middle school students (grades 6-8) will need 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 successful beyond high school. Applications will be assessed on quality of the nomination, not on the number received. Award judges are members of the Dearborn Chamber Education Committee and are not provided with the teachers’ names.
One winner from elementary, middle and high school will be announced at a special ceremony, Wednesday, May 15, 2013, at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center. The Alberta Muirhead Teacher of the Year Award is sponsored by the Dearborn Chamber of Commerce.
