The Color Run is tomorrow! Please have all kids who are participating pick up their prize bags/t-shirts at the registration table between 4:30-6. The event will start at 6pm. Please make sure you are wearing your white colorathon shirt and other clothing that you don’t mind getting blasted with color. It is recommended that you have some towels in the car to sit on for the ride home. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!

M-STEP Testing Schedule

It is almost M-STEP (state assessment) testing time again.  3rd, 4th and 5th grade students take this assessment in April and May this year ONLINE.

The schedule is as follows:

5th grade (English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies) – Monday, April 11 through Friday, April 29

3rd grade (English Language Arts, Math) – Monday, April 25 through Friday, May 13

4th grade (English Language Arts, Math, Science) – Monday, May 9 through Thursday, May 26

All M-STEP testing will be online this year and the tests are much shorter so we do not anticipate the lengthy test sessions that we experienced last year.   Test sessions will be spread out throughout the testing window and your child will not test every day.  All M-STEP tests are untimed and student-paced.  Students who require more time than allocated will be allowed to complete each part of the test over multiple test sessions.

What you can do:

During this time, please refrain from making any appointments during the school day and make sure you child arrives to school ON TIME. Your child should be eating healthy foods, getting plenty of exercise and sleeping at least eight hours each night during this time and all year long.  Encourage your children to take their time and do their very best.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the M-STEP, please stop by my office, email me at groover@dearbornschools.org  or call me at (313) 827-6250.  Thank you so much for the support and help you give to your child all year long!

Mobile DIA coming to Snow!

Snow School is very fortunate to have the DIA AWAY truck visit us on Thursday, April 7.  The truck houses a mobile exhibit with many hands on/technology/art experiences for our students. The parking lot will house the large truck making fewer parking spots and more congestion.  Please plan ahead and ask your children that walk in the lot to be extra cautious.  The truck will be coming in at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, April 6.  It takes 2 hours to set up and we need it up and running by 8:50 am Thursday.  Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your understanding and support!
