Today, all Snow students participated in their new Wolf Dens. This is a part of our Leader in Me program at Snow. Students were grouped across grades into a “den” with another teacher to learn about the 7 habits. This direct teaching of the habits will happen approximately twice a month for the remainder of the school year, on select Wednesday mornings. Students will stay in their groups all year. Ask your child what they learned today in their Wolf Den!
Friday, Oct. 14 is a half day of school for all elementary students. Students will be dismissed at 11:45 AM. Lunch will not be provided. Teachers and staff will be involved in professional development in the afternoon. Thanks for your support!

A message from Mr. Blessing:
Dear Snow Learning Community,
Dearborn Schools is truly one big family and we always team up when support is needed. As you know, I have been called upon to step in to serve as the acting Principal at Snow School while your principal, Dr. Groover is recovering from surgery. We are all hoping that Dr. Groover has a speedy recovery, and wish her the very best!
I look forward to working with you to ensure that Snow School remains on a positive path toward our shared goal of creating the best learning opportunities for all students. I am honored to have this opportunity to serve as your leader, and look forward to being part of this wonderful learning community!

Picture Day is Monday, October 10. Please check your child’s backpack for ordering information.
Make-up day will be Friday, November 18.
Today all of the students and teachers practiced what to do in inclement weather/winter by lining up in the gym and saying the Pledge of Allegiance and school pledge together. The students did a great job lining up because they know what to do outside. We hope we don’t have to have an indoor line up anytime soon but now we are prepared for it!
Fathers and Father-figures,
On Wednesday, September 28 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm we will be having our 4th annual ‘Dads and Kids’ Pizza Night at our school. You will meet here at the school cafeteria at 6:00 pm for FREE pizza and drinks. At 6:30 we will have a presentation about our WATCH D.O.G.S.® (Dads Of Great Students) Program. WATCH D.O.G.S.® is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. Our goal is to have you spend at least one day this year at the school to be a positive male role model and to provide an extra set of eyes and ears.
Dads, granddads, uncles, step-dads and adult brothers . . . this is your chance to have a night out alone with your student in a fun atmosphere at school.
In order to participate, you need to do two things:
- Print and fill out the bottom portion of this slip and return it with your student (ASAP) saying that you will attend the pizza night so we’ll have an accurate head count for the food. (These forms were also sent home today.)
- Mark your calendars, and we’ll see you Wednesday, Sept. 28 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.
There will be a meeting of parents who would like to be involved in refining procedures for arrival and dismissal on Monday, September 19 at 6:00 PM in the Media Center. All are welcome to participate.
