We are going to the Zoo + Making t-shirts!!!

I will be sending home permission slips for our trip to the Detroit Zoo today. We will be going on Tuesday, May 29th. The bus will leave at 9 am and we hope to be back at Snow School by 2 pm. The cost of the trip is $9. Please pack lunches in a disposable bag. Chaperones will have to drive separately to the zoo. Please make sure to arrive on time in order to avoid paying another admission ticket. We can’t refund any money after May 14th since we are paying in advance.

Attached to the field trip slip is a yellow note explaining our class t-shirts! We would like to have ALL students purchase a shirt if possible so that we can wear them to the zoo together!

Please return the order form and the zoo permission slip no later than May 14th.

Thank you!

Earth Day!

Hello families!

The entire school will be participating in a belated EARTH DAY All School Grounds Clean Up.  This will take place on Monday, April 30, from 2:30-3:15. Parents, if you have any gardening gloves please send them with your child to school. All of our students and the teachers will participate in this activity.  Our goal is to  clean up our school grounds for a safer and more inviting environment.

Field Trip Reminder!

Hello families!

Our field trip to the Michigan theater in Ann Arbor is this Monday, April 23. Students will have lunch at school so there is no need to pack a special lunch unless your child normally brings lunch from home. If you are coming as a chaperone, we expect to leave the building at 9. You may follow the bus at that time.

Thank you!

Care to the Core

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.  

In addition, Snow Elementary School will be also be taking part in a “Care to the Core” Poem Contest, whereby students in grades K-5 will be able to write a poem to be shared during our assembly on being a leader and being an Upstander.  We encourage you to work with your child to create a poem that they would be proud to share in front of the entire school community on this day.  Here is the rubric:

The event is from 2:15 p.m. till 3:15 p.m.

 

Calling all Leaders!

Let’s Read!!!

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 Snow Book Share, simply go through your gently used books or magazines and donate them to our Snow School Book Share.  Over the next 2 weeks organize your bookshelves at home and donate your unwanted books or magazines. Then on

May 1,2 and 3, 2018 we will have a Book Swap before and after school.  Each book will cost $0.25 and you can bring home new books to read.

Please bring your book donations to the bin in the office or outside Mrs. Bush’s office starting tomorrow.  Leaders think Win/Win and by organizing your books and donating them you are giving a friend the opportunity to read something new.  

That is a Win/Win!
