Thank you for shopping with us!

Just a quick shout out to all the parents who have been shopping with Snow in mind.  We recently received word that PTA will be getting checks from Kroger Community Rewards ($78.06) and Amazon Smile ($6.60).  While the total is not a lot, every bit helps, and it’s nice to have such low-effort fundraisers!

It’s that time of year when PTA reimburses the school nearly $2,000 for all of the spring field trip buses.  We love helping our students get out and have these fun experiences!

Picnic pre-sale, volunteers sought

Hard to believe, but we are only three weeks away from our fabulous end-of-year picnic!  The picnic will be June 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the school.

We encourage families to buy tickets ahead to save money and reduce the lines at the event.  Forms should be coming home with students.  Or you can print a Picnic PreSale Form here.

We also need volunteers – lots and lots of volunteers – to make this evening a success.  Please consider visiting our Signup Genius at http://bit.ly/SnowPicnic19 and finding a way to help.  Grandparents, responsible teenage or older siblings, and friends of the school are also welcome to help out.  Just note that only paid PTA members are allowed at the two stations that handle money.

Thanks in advance, and we look forward to seeing you all in June!

Concert treats available Wednesday

Snow PTA will be selling some treats during Wednesday’s outdoor concert for the kindergarten through third grade.  We could use another couple volunteers to help staff it and a couple more coolers.  If you can help, please contact Michelle Giles.

Parent input sought on elementary reading/writing pilot program

To: Parents and District Staff

When: Thursday, May 16, 2019 between 3:45 pm – 5:30 pm

Where: ASC, Board Room 18700 Audette, Dearborn 48124

Please join us to review the two elementary language arts (reading and writing) programs that will be piloted next year:

● Benchmark (Benchmark Learning)

● ReadyGen (Pearson)

Dearborn Public Schools will be piloting each of these highly rated programs in grades kindergarten – 5th grade for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Teachers selected for the pilot will use the same program for the entire year. All teachers will receive training. A resource subcommittee reviewed six programs and rated each through a rigorous process designed to identify the most relevant instructional resources.

At the end of the pilot period it is anticipated that an elementary language arts program will be recommended for adoption for the 20-21 school year for all elementary classrooms.

Penny War – Last day tomorrow

We are moving into the final day of Penny War and this is what more than $20 in pennies looks like.

Fourth grade had the heaviest jug on Thursday, but second grade pulled way in the lead. Why? Cash, cold hard cash counts as positives for your class. Only silver coins (quarters, nickels and dimes) count against a class.

The score board going into the final day…

  • 5th grade – 800
  • 4th grade 2,704
  • 3rd grade 308
  • 2nd grade 5,935
  • 1st grade 716
  • Kindergarten -244
  • Preschool -94
  • School total so far $239.84

Remember Friday is the last day to put money in the jugs for your class.  The containers will be out before and after school.  May the best class win!

  • 3rd grade 0
  • 2nd grade 109
