Class Christmas Party!!!

Dear Parents,

We are having a Party!!!  December is a very exciting month for third graders and we are going to add to that excitement by having a Christmas Party!! Our party will be on Friday, December 22nd in the afternoon.  At the party the children decided that they would like to have a gently, used book exchange.  For your child to participate in the exchange just send to school a book that your child no longer reads and is gently used, no missing, torn or marked up pages, the week of December 18th.  Please make sure that the book is at grade level.  On the 22nd, the children who bring a book to school will be able to participate in the exchange!  This is voluntary;  it is up to you if your child participates.

I have sent a note home with some of the children requesting supplies for our party.  If you get a note please let me know as soon as possible if you are able to send in this item or not.  If you can not do it this time I need to ask another parent if he/she can sent it in to school.  If you did not get a note but would like to send something in to help the children celebrate please feel free to do so.  We have 25 children in our class.  ( No peanuts or nut products please)

Our last day of school is Friday, December 22nd, and we return to school on Monday, January 8, 2018!

Happy Holidays!!!!!

Dear Snow Families,

we are very excited to bring to Snow School our 5th Annual Family Science Night!  It will take place on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m..  The evening will begin in the gym with the science assembly, “Dumpster Doug”.  After the show, families are invited to walk through the hallways to view our students’ science project displays.  Please save the date to celebrate our accomplishments!


Science Fair!!!

Dear Snow Families of Grades 3-5,

All students in grades 3-5 are required to participate in our 5th Annual Science Fair.  Please help your child brainstorm ideas for his/her science experiment.  Ideas can be found on the following websites:

Allowable Projects:  Experimental type projects that use the scientifiic method with a testable question.  Ex.  Does aspirin affect the growth rate of roses?  What brand of bread grows the most mold?

Projects Not Allowed:  Research projects (What is a hurricane?) or models (a volcano; a solar system).  These do not involve testing.




We are going on a Field Trip!!!!

Today your child will be bringing home a permission slip for a trip to Cranbrook Institute of Science.  We will be going on Friday, January 19, 2018.  This is a bus trip and the children will need to bring a bag lunch with either a juice box or a plastic bottle of water (no glass bottles or water bottles please).  The cost of the trip is $12.oo and this is due on Tuesday, December 19th ( cash only).  We need 4 parents to join us on this trip.  Parents are free.  If I get more than 4 parents who would like to join us I will pull names from a hat as to who will come with us.  Parents will have to drive behind the bus as all third grade classes are going on this trip and we have no room for anyone else on the bus.

The kids are excited and we all can’t wait!

Second and Third Grade Winter Concert

We are having a Winter Concert on Wednesday, December 13th!  The concert will be in the Snow School Gym and begin at 6:00 pm.  Please have the third graders here at 6:00.  The second grade will be performing before us when they are done we will be going on the stage.   The children may wear what they want, however if they have festive attire that would be great!

See you then!!!!

Holiday Shope


It’s that time of year when children get extra excited and thoughts turn to gift giving.  Our wonderful PTA is hosting the Penguin Patch Holiday Shop next week.  The Holiday Shop is a fun way for children to purchase gifts for their family for the Holidays.  Children are not required to participate and shop, if choose for your child not to purchase gifts that is not a problem at all.  If however you would like your child to shop our class will be going to the shop on Tuesday, December 12th at 3:00.  If you would like to help out here is a link to sign up:

The shop will not be open before or after school.  They have a very limited time schedule this year and can be open only for three days.
