On Monday, April 23, every Dearborn Public School will highlight the great ways their school is working to create a safe school environment during the first-ever “Care to the Core Day.” Each school will participate in an activity or program that demonstrates programs that are centered on helping students resolve conflicts, understanding the impact of their behaviors, and creating a safer school environment.
Snow Elementary School will also be taking place in the festivities with a guest speaker talking to our school community, Mr. Ali Sayed. Ali is the Founder and CEO of HYPE Athletics Community, the highly popular organization that offers athletics, fitness, education and social services to the entire Metro-Detroit area including but not limited to Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, etc. Ali is also a member of the Dearborn Education Foundation, an officer position he has held for almost 10 years on the Board of Directors. Ali is also a proud graduate of Dearborn High School where he graduated from in 1999.
