Week of April 16th

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:

PTA Reflections Contest:  Let’s make this OUR Year!!!!

Every year the National PTA Council sponsors a contest for students.  They say, “PTA Reflections is a nationally acclaimed student recognition program to encourage artistic creativity in the classroom and at home. Students of all grades and abilities may participate and explore the arts based on the 2017-2018 Theme: Within Reach.

The arts—and the National PTA Reflections program—support student success and serve as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in your school community. Celebrate arts learning in your school community with Reflections.

National PTA Reflections welcomes all grades and abilities to explore and be involved in the arts. Annually, thousands of students will reflect on a common theme and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts.”

The Art Department participates from Snow, but in the past there have been few to zero participants in most categories.  This year we are hoping students will catch the bug and find a category they are interested in AND create something they will submit.

Each classroom has a handout on the specifics for the categories:  Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography and Visual Arts.  The information is also posted by the Art Room and in the Lobby.

Please encourage your children to find something of interest and be creative.  If you have questions please see or email Mrs. Reagan Davis, Snow Reflections Chairperson, davis.reagan@gmail.com , or Ms. Jo Anne Zechar, zecharj@dearbornschools.org.

ALL entries are due to Ms. Zechar by the end of the day, Tuesday, November 21!!!!
