A few answers to your questions…

I have received some emails about the Postcard Project and I wanted to share the questions and answers with you in case you had the same questions!

  1. Who can we ask to send postcards?  Anyone! Friends, family, acquaintances, coworkers, etc. I posted a request on Facebook asking for volunteers and within a day I had so many volunteers!
  2. How many people should we ask? As many as you want. I would like every child to have at least one card sent to them. If you are having trouble, please let me know and I can help.
  3. How far away should the cards come from? Absolutely anywhere! Even within the city of Dearborn is OK. We will be finding the location on a map so if it is from the Metro Detroit area we will use that map. We would love to have them from as many cities, states and countries as possible.
  4. Can my child keep the postcards that were mailed to them? Absolutely! We will be displaying them along with the maps but at the end of the year we will send them all home.
  5. When is the deadline? We will display the maps until the end of the year so as long as we have the cards by June we will be able to locate and mark them.
  6. What kind of postcard? What should they write on the postcard? Any postcard will do! If they can send one with a famous landmark that would be great but a plain one is fine too! Please have them include the city, state and country they are from. They can include any special information about their city/state/country that they want to share. Information about their weather or things they like to do for fun are great too.

If you have any other questions, please let me know! I look forward to all the postcards!


Postcards from the world!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

    We have started our map unit in Social Studies. We are learning all about maps, how to use them, and how to make them. We need your help! We would like to get postcards from all over our state, our country and our world! Can you please ask your family and friends to send us postcards?


Here is the address to send them to:

Snow Elementary School

Mrs. Massey’s class

(Students name)

2000 Culver Ave

Dearborn, MI 48124


If you have any questions, please let me know! We hope to get over 100 postcards so ask as many people as you can!


Thank you so much for helping us learn about maps!

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

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:


Lastly, on this day, everyone school-wide will wear blue to take a stand against bullying and encourage acceptance, kindness and leadership.

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

Yours in Education,

Mrs. Amal Alcodray – Principal

A note from the 5th Grade Team

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We need all Little Caesars Pizza Kit Fundraising Sheets and money (Checks made out to Snow School) to be turned in to Ms. Sherlock’s room or mailbox by the end of the day Tuesday, March 27th. Every little bit helps!  Thanks to all who have turned them in thus far.  If everyone could at least sell one kit it would help our upcoming 5th graders tremendously as they make their trip to Camp Pinewood in the fall.

With Appreciation,
TEAM 5th Grade
