Community Give Back!!!

Posted by Laurie Doner on May 15, 2017 in Class News |

Sunny and warm weather is 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.

Summer Learning!!

Summer Learning: Math and Literacy


Dear Parent/Guardian,

      According to Johns Hopkins University, the effects of summer learning loss can result in nearly a three-month loss in grade-level equivalency in math and a two-month loss in grade-level equivalency in reading.  In order to close the summer learning loss gap in reading and math, middle school students will be  expected to complete Summer Learning before they return in the fall.  Teachers will grade the completed summer work when school opens in September.  Below are the expectations for math and literacy.  Thank you so much for supporting your child’s development through summer learning.



  • Complete 60 minutes of Khan Academy a week, based on their NWEA level.
  • Students need to access Khan through Clever from the Dearborn Schools Student page.




  • Read 3 books of your choice and genre
  • Prepare one book talk to be presented in September
  • Complete a combined 60 minutes of MobyMax a week in Vocabulary, Language, and Reading Skills Literature
  • Students need to access MobyMax through Clever from the Dearborn Schools Student page.



Below is the grade breakdown by minutes for each subject area: Math (Khan) and ELA (MobyMax).

480+ minutes    A                 

384 – 479           B                  

336 – 383           C       

288 – 335           D


Please sign and return the bottom portion  to your child’s teacher


I understand the summer learning requirements for my child and that these assignments will  graded in both math and language arts.

الدورة الصيفية : الرياضيات و اللغة الانكليزية


أولياء الأمور و الأوصياء الأعزاء:

بناء على دراسة لجامعة جون هوبكنز إن  الانقطاع عن الدراسة خلال الصيف  قد يسفر عن تراجع الطالب بما يعادل فترة زمنية قد تصل إلى الثلاثة  أشهر تقريبا من فترة الدراسة العادية في مادة الرياضيات، و الشهرين في مادة القراءة. من أجل التخلص من هذه الفجوة التعليمية التي من الممكن أن تنشأ عن حلول فصل الصيف في القراءة والرياضيات، يتوقع من طلاب المرحلة الاعدادية إكمال واجبات بيتية صيفية  قبل عودتهم إلى المدرسة العام القادم وسيتم تصحيح وإعطاء علامات عن هذه الواجبات من قبل المعلمين عند بداية العام الدراسي في شهر أيلول القادم. في ما يلي توقعاتنا في مادة الرياضيات و القراءة. شكراً لكم على دعمكم ومساندتكم لأبنائكم في إكمال  الواجبات الصيفية .



  • إكمال  60 دقيقة اسبوعياً في التمرن على مهارات مادة الرياضيات على موقع أكاديمية خان بناءاً على مستواهم في  امتحانات ال NWEA.
  • على الطلاب الدخول على موقع خان عبر الصفحة الرئيسية لمدارس ديربورن الرسمية / صفحة الطلاب. لا تقوموا بتسجيل الدخول من صفحة الطالب الخاصة.

اللغة الانكليزية:

  •  قراءة  كتب من أختيارك
  • تجهيز عرض تقديمي مكتوب لتقديمه في شهر أيلول.
  •    أكمل 60 دقيقة من العمل على موقع موبي ماكس أسبوعياً ، المفردات، اللغة، القراءة، مهارات آداب اللغة.
  • يجب أن يدخل الطالب على موقع موبي ماكس عبر كليفر من الصفحة الرئيسية لمدارس ديربورن الرسمية لا تقوموا بتسجيل الدخول من صفحة الطالب الخاصة.


اليكم فيما يلي توزيع العلامات لكل دقيقة في كل مادة : الرياضيات ( خان) اللغة ( موبي ماكس)

       480 دقيقة و أكثر  = أ

479-384 دقيقة = ب

383-336 دقيقة = س

335-288 دقيقة = د                  

نرجو منكم التوقيع على هذا الجزء و إعادته إلى معلم/ـة الطفل

أتفهم طبيعة الواجبات البيتية الصيفية المطلوبة من ابني/ ابني وأنه سيتم إعطاءه/ها علامات عليها في الرياضيات و اللغة.

We Need Drivers For the Rogue River Trip Next Week!

Posted by Laurie Doner on April 27, 2017 in Class News |

Dear Parents,

We do not have a bus for our Rouge River Water Festival Trip next week.  We were relying on parent drivers for this trip. If you can help in driving that would be most helpful(just driving us there and back to U of M Dearborn).  You must have a background check on file and have to bring in your drivers license and proof of insurance and registration to drive.


If we do not have enough drivers we might have to cancel the trip and we do not want to do that, it is a good one to go to!



Mrs. Doner, Ed.S.
