Welcome to the Virtual Band Week Kick-Off!

Hey there, Band & String Fam!

After much plotting, we’re ready to go this week. I’ve missed your musical selves and look forward to seeing you soon! Here is what’s new:

Google Classroom: All students have been added to Google Classroom. Invitations were sent to your student e-mail. So far, we have just over 20 students that joined so we’re just about 10 away from having our WHOLE class logged on! You guys rock! Keep it up 🙂

Band & String Karate: This is a program we are going to use that will help us stay on top of playing while we learn from home. It’s going to be fun, so buckle up and dust off those instruments 😉 The task and directions are posted on Google Classroom.

Google Hangouts: All Instrumental students are required to come to an Instrumental Google Hangout once per week. If you are not able to attend, please e-mail so I can help.

Band Google Hangout will be on Tuesdays at 2:00 or whenever students are finished working with Mr. D.

Instrumental Remote Learning

Greetings, Snow Band Family!

I’ve added our Instrumental class onto this blog so that we can stay connected and keep making music together. If you would prefer a different email address, feel free to unsubscribe on the right side of the blog page, and subscribe using your preferred e-mail.

What can you expect for Instrumental?

I will be posting 2 virtual lessons per week. That’s right… 2 lessons of musical goodness!! We’ll also have 2 Google Hangouts per week to check in, play for each other for those that are up to it, and see each other’s fabulous musical faces 🙂

I miss you all so much and truly look forward to connecting with you soon! As soon as I have times set aside for Google Hangouts, I will send out a blog post. Stay tuned!

Early Arrival at Snow

Good morning,

There are students who are at school prior to 8:25am without supervision.  For the sake of safety, please drop your child off no earlier than 8:25am.  If your child comes for breakfast, please make sure they go straight to the cafeteria no earlier than 8:15am.  Thank you in advance.

Have a safe Spring Break.

Instrumental 1/8/19

Greetings, Snow Families!

Due to meetings at Edsel Ford, Tuesday students (clarinet and saxophone) will have class on Wednesday with trumpet students.

Have a great week and welcome back!

Mrs. Oren

Friday is Snow School Spirit Day!

Go wolves!

10/22 Instrumental

Greetings, Snow Instrumentalists!

There will not be a flute lesson on Monday, October 22. Instead, flute students will join clarinets and saxophones on Tuesday, October 23.

Walk to School Day!

Oct. 10 is national Walk to School Day, and Snow School is planning to participate.  We are encouraging all families to consider walking or biking students to school that day.  A healthy lifestyle, including sufficient exercise, improves student achievement. Does your child get the suggested 60 minutes or more each day of physical activity?  More families walking would also reduce traffic congestion around the school.  Snow PTA will provide a small gift to all the students who participate on Oct. 10.
For more information, visit the Walk & Bike to School website at
