Congratulations on a wonderful year of learning and growing! This has been one of my best years of teaching because I had amazing students and supportive parents. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child’s educational journey! Have a wonderful summer!!!
Summer Learning: Reading and Math
Dear Snow Families,
According to Johns Hopkins University, the effects of summer learning loss (summer slide) can result in nearly a three-month loss in grade-level equivalency in math and a two-month loss in reading.
Your child had a great school year and has learned so much! We do not want the summer slide to occur as we want your child to start off strong next year! Reading and math skills can be practiced on MobyMax.
Mrs. Bush will monitor student work and post the leaders on the Snow School blog https://iblog.dearbornschools.org/mrsbush/ Click here for Mrs. Bush’s Blog. MobyMax offers many areas of learning so it is important that your child and you are aware of their target areas listed above.
Reminder that the 5th graders are going to the Dearborn Recreational Center tomorrow. Students are encouraged to wear their “Class of 2018” shirt. Please wear comfortable tennis shoes.
Students must bring a packed lunch from home. Students should bring their bathing suit and towel to change into while at the Rec Center.
Reminder that tomorrow is the 4th grade picnic to Ten Eyck Park. Students should bring a packed lunch and anything they want to play with at the park.
It is suggested that students bring extra bottles of water to drink. Any sunscreen should be applied at home before your child arrives at school.
Please wear comfortable shoes for walking.
Parents are welcome to join us at the park, however all students must walk to the park and back to school as a group with the teachers. Parents will not be able to take children home from the park.
Dearborn Public Library Programs
Keep your child’s summer reading inspired with these free programs sponsored by your Dearborn Public Libraries. All programs are a part of the summer reading programs held each year and are free to the public, serving all ages in all locations! Click here to check out this year’s programs.
The Snow Summer Slide Challenge will begin June 15 and run through September 8, 2018. Please join Mrs. Bush’s blog to see results over the summer.
Reminder that tomorrow (Monday) afternoon is our annual 5th grade vs. Teachers Kickball game from 2:15-3:15 pm. All 5th grade students should wear their “Class of 2018” shirt or a Snow shirt. Parents are more than welcome to attend!
We cannot believe it is the end of the year! Tuesday, June 12 is our 5th Grade Promotion from 1:15-2:25 in the snow Gymnasium. It’s a time for students, teachers, friends, and families to celebrate all of our students, and the hard work and determination they have displayed during their elementary years by honoring them at the 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony. It is a serious and solemn ceremony, so we encourage all students to dress their best. Some nice options for boys are dress slacks, with a button up collared shirt, with a tie or bow-tie. For girls, summer dresses are nice, rompers, and/or skirts and tops. Please be mindful of the shoes the girls are wearing because the walk through the halls and ceremony require them to be in those shoes for a long period of time.
The 5th grade walk through the hall takes place before the Promotion Ceremony at 1:15. Please get there ahead of time to line the lobby on either side. This last 5th grade walk, we promise, you do not want to miss.
Your child may be signed out at 11:00 to go home, get dressed up and eat lunch before returning at 12:45. You must sign YOUR student out, and back in, with the school office on Tuesday for them to be able to leave and return to the building.
We look forward to celebrating this beautiful occasion,
Just a reminder that our annual Snow School Picnic is tonight from 5:00-8:00 pm. Stop by for food, fun, and friends! Bring a lawn chair or blanket and grab a seat to enjoy the evening. Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight!
