Congratulations to Fusion Cheer! With at score of 407.83, their highest of the season, Fusion Cheer took first place overall in today’s Warren Woods Tower competition!
Just one year ago, Stout and Smith Middle Schools joined together and created Dearborn’s first middle school competitive cheer team – Fusion Cheer. After a great first season, Fusion Cheer has been working hard this season. In just their second season, facing challenges that included virtual practices due to Covid, the team has remained focused and dedicated, taking their performance to a higher level! Fusion cheer has had an amazing 2020-2021 season so far, taking 1st place in four out of five competitions. With one more competition to go, they are looking to keep the winning streak going. Congratulations to these AMAZING athletes!
Students & Parents in the Virtual Learning Program,
On Wednesday, March 10th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade teachers will be distributing the second book in our math series to students in the Virtual Learning Program who have not already pick this book up. Math teachers will be in the front circle drive at Stout from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm to pass out math books. Parents will need to know their student’s grade when they pull up to the covered walkway in front of the school. Parents can stay in their car and a teacher will hand them the book through the car window. We ask that parents wear a mask when picking up their child’s book and any other time they visit the building. Students who are or will be attending school in-person will get their new math book when they come to school.
We appreciate you coming to school next Wednesday to pick up your book.
Just a reminder that all students will be starting a new daily schedule on Monday, March 1st. Classes now start at 8:50 each morning. This new start time is for both students attending school in-person and those attending class virtually online. Links to the new daily schedule and to a monthly calendar that shows which students attend in-person each day are included below. We are looking forward to seeing Group A 6th graders in person on Monday, March 1st, and Group B 6th graders in person on Tuesday, March 2nd. All other students will be attending class virtually (online).
Thank you to the over 125 parents who joined us yesterday! The presentations that were shared with families and guardians yesterday in our Parent Meetings are linked below. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call the office at (313) 827-4600.
We will be holding informational meetings via Zoom on Wednesday, February 24th, 2021 to present information on our Hybrid Return to School model. PLEASE plan on attending one of these important meetings whether you opted to have your child attend in-person or virtually for the remainder of the year. We will be hosting three meetings to meet the needs of our families. Your role as a partner in this process will ensure a safe, healthy, and smooth transition back to in-person learning. We look forward to seeing you soon! Links to the meetings have been shared via email.
Parents who would like their child to learn online for the remainder of the school year have until Wednesday, February 24th to opt into the Virtual Learning Program. If you are making this choice for your child, please know that they will continue to learn online for the remainder of the school year and will not be able to return to in-person learning until the 2021-2022 school year. Please complete this form to insure placement into the Virtual Learning Program and contact the office to let us know about your decision.
Parents who originally opted into the Virtual Learning Program during the previous two enrollment windows received an email confirming their selection several weeks ago. Parents wishing to opt out of the Virtual Learning Program should email Mr. Oke (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mrs. Faraj (email@example.com) by Wednesday, February 24th and express their intent to opt their child out of the Virtual Learning Program.
Thursday, February 11th, and Tuesday, February 16th, are asynchronous days for students. Teachers will post work on Schoology for students to do, but there will not be any Zoom sessions on these days. WIDA testing for some 8th graders is still taking place on February 11th.
Stout Families, Tomorrow is the first full day of the second semester. Please see the attached updated schedule for semester 2. Students should begin following this schedule tomorrow, Wednesday, January 27th, 2021.
Monday, January 25th, is the first day of the second semester. Many students will be getting new elective classes. Students whose families opted in or out of the Virtual Learning Program since the beginning of the year may also have different schedules this semester. Student schedules are available to view in both Student & Parent Connect.
A major change that you will notice is that Advisory classes have been moved from the middle of the school day to the beginning of the school day. Advisory classes will now appear as “Zero Hour”. The other hours have been adjusted to fill the space where Advisory class used to be.
Monday, January 25th, and Tuesday, January, 26th, are both half-days. The schedule to both days is linked below.
Monday, January 25th, and Tuesday, January 26th are also half-days of school for students. We will be sharing a DIFFERENT schedule for Monday and Tuesday at the end of the day tomorrow so as not to confuse students.
Please see the letter linked below regarding a confirmed case of coronavirus (COVID-19). The positive individual was not in the building while students were present. This letter is informational and no further action is needed from you.
