Earth Day Clean-Up Monday

Parents:  Please send your child to school with gardening gloves- if you have some- for Monday, April 30.  All of our students and staff will participate in a belated Earth Day activity.  The action we are taking is to spruce up and clean up our school grounds.  We will be picking up trash and garbage and pulling weeds.  Thanks in advance!

Ear Buds

Dear Families,

Students may bring their own earbuds for use during class while they use our Chromebooks.  Many of our headphones are broken. Students will be responsible for their own pair and will not be able to share them with other students for sanitary reasons.  Thank you in advance if you are able to send some in for your child. 🙂

Book Swap

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!

Care to the Core Day – April 23rd

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:

Yours in Education,
