Achievements Showcase is looking for…….

Snow School is looking for ways our students are involved in the community and outside of our school day.  If your children are in programs or activities in which they have achieved something- the next level, recognition for their services, involvement in programs, medals in sports, volunteer activities, church or scouts, the list could be endless!- and you wish to let us help you celebrate with them- please send in a photo for our Achievements Showcase!  It is located in the lobby and is seen by everyone!  We welcome the opportunity to promote all the good that our students at Snow do OUTSIDE their school day.  If you have questions please see Ms. Zechar.  Thanks!!
