Take Home Reading Book Bags

Good Afternoon!

I did not send book bags home with the class today.  We are trying to get them all collected for the end of the year.  We have several students that have not brought theirs back in quite a long time!  These books are used every year for every classroom so it is important that we get them back.  If your child hasn’t returned their book bags with their books please start trying to locate them.  Looking for them might lead to an awesome adventure under the bed or in the closet…….:)

Have a great afternoon!

Parent Survey

Dear Parent/Guardian,


Snow ES and all Dearborn Schools are involved in an ongoing continuous improvement process, of which parents and guardians are an integral part. Snow ES is using the AdvancED Parent Survey as a means to elicit your opinions to help target areas for the school system to improve and areas to continue to be effective. Your opinion is important to us, and we ask that you take the time to complete this survey. The online survey will be available from 5/9/17 to 5/31/17. In order to complete the survey, please click on this link:

Please be assured that your responses to this survey will be anonymous and your honest opinions are appreciated. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact your school principal at  Thank you in advance for supporting Snow ES improvement efforts.

Your cooperation and support in completing the parent survey will be greatly appreciated. Sincerely,

Leadership Oppurtunity

Sunny and warm weather are here! As part of Snow Elementary Leader In Me Program, we are asking you, our fabulous students, to reach out in our community to help others.  If you’d like to be a part of the May Plant-Up Club, simply volunteer to help plant-up a neighbor’s, relative’s or your very own yard.  “Plant-up” could include helping plant flowers, vegetables, or preparing garden beds for future flowers and veggies.  Please be sure to have a parent with you and get permission of the community member before planting up.  You are giving back to the community, so please offer to do this free of cost.

Each time you help “plant-up” someone’s yard, write the date and color a square on the chart given to you by your classroom teacher. Once you have helped 5 times in the community, please return this chart to Ms. Krawczyk, Mrs. Bush or Mrs. Grizzell for acknowledgement of your leadership and kindness.

A special thank you to all students who have helped so far: Aasim M., Farah F., Zoe D., Hasan, Kayla J., Ahmad J., Molly S., Ryan R. and Ahmad A.

Book Bags for Reading at Home

Please remind your child to return his/her book bags to school with them every day.  The books that are in the bags are books I use with them in our small groups during daily 5.  Once again this is very important and I cannot teach the planned lesson with your child’s reading group if they do not have the book we are currently working with.  If your child does not bring their book bags to school with their classroom books in it, I will be changing their color.  They start every day on the color green showing they are prepared for school and making good choices. If they do not have their book bags then they are unprepared.  Please help me strengthen their independence and responsibility skills!
