What’s Happening This Week at Oakman?

Greetings Oakman Families and Students,

Have you been listening to the morning and afternoon announcements that are made by our R.O.A.R students? R.O.A.R stands for Remarkable Oakman Announcement Reporters. These students submitted an application and were interviewed by a team of teachers for consideration for this wonderful leadership opportunity. These students research their own facts on weather, sports and other interesting facts. Under the guidance of Mrs. Dakhlallah, these students have been following a set sequence each day of the week. Be sure to listen carefully and share the fun and interesting things you hear!

STEM Middle School Admission Process

STEM Middle School would like to thank everyone for their interest in attending our school for the 2019-2020 school year.  To answer the most popular question we hear, there is no application process in order to be considered for STEM for those students who attend Dearborn Public Schools; instead, invitations will be sent out to all those 5th grade students in the district that are found to be eligible.

To be eligible students must have the following:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP.

 Our hope is to have invitations sent out to all eligible 5th grade students by the end of February.  From there, students who receive an invitation and indicate that they are interested in actually attending STEM in the fall, will be selected by lottery.  We will accept a final number of 60 students in to our 2019-2020 6th grade class.

If you live within the Dearborn Public Schools, and do not currently attend a Dearborn Public School, OR you are currently a 6th or 7th grader and would like to apply for a POSSIBLE empty slot, an application will be available on the STEM Middle School website (https://stem.dearbornschools.org/) under the tab “ADMISSIONS” starting in mid-February.   Invitations will be sent out to grade students that meet the below standards:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP

 Once again, thank you for your interest in STEM Middle School – a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School for Academic Excellence.

Blankets, Towels and Small Rugs Needed

Hello Families!

The Young 5s are beginning a community project for the month of February. It is called “Making Critters Comfy”. Please ask those you know and check around your home for any gently used blankets, towels, and small rugs that are no longer wanted. Bring these to school! Our class goal is to collect 30 items to help 30 homeless and abandoned animals at the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

Happy Monday,

Now that the polar vortex, snow days and freezing temperatures are behind us, we are looking forward to warmer and brighter days! We hope you all enjoyed the Superbowl weekend and had fun cheering for your favorite team.
