Teachers Learn Too!

Teachers from Long, Nowlin and Whitmore-Bolles Schools are collaborating with grade level peers to strengthen their use of Content and Language Objectives. This will help keep students focused on specific common core skills as well as the language to express their learning. Many thanks to Nadra Shami for facilitating this very productive day.

Kindergarten Parent Meeting

You are invited to attend a very important informational meeting on Friday, January 27 at 8:50 am.  Mrs. Morey, Mrs. Newsted, Mrs. Liepe and I will be providing more information about the Reading by Third Grade legislation, as well as how the district and school will be working to support students.  We especially want to share specific suggestions with you for continuing to work with your child at home as they move into more structured Reading instruction.

If you are not able to attend this meeting, we would be happy to discuss the agenda items with you at a more convenient time.  We also plan to schedule additional meeting days to provide you with materials and ideas for enhancing your child’s learning at home.  Through our continued partnership, we plan to ensure that every child at Long School is achieving at or above grade level.

Math Workshop

Long School students and teachers use a workshop approach to math in order to provide small group instruction with the teacher and increase student interaction. Students at every level learn to use math tools, stay highly engaged and use the language of math while working collaboratively with peers.

Wayne County Regional Enhancement Education Millage Proposal

 

School districts in Wayne County have placed a proposal on the November 8th ballot to provide added funding for our schools. It is the “Regional Enhancement Millage Proposal.”

If approved by the entire county, the 2 mil proposal will generate approximately $6.2 million from Dearborn but the District will receive $7.8 million in additional funding for our schools.  Money would go to local schools starting this year and the millage expires after six years.
