We will be collecting coins/change/money for the Leukemia Foundation through a program called Pennies for Pasta. Each classroom will have a box to deposit their donations in. We start collecting Monday November 2 and stop on Tuesday, November 24. The class with the highest donation will win a lunch from Olive Garden (that will be enjoyed at Snow School). Start saving those coins!! Last year our winner was the first grade class of Mrs. Fakhoury-Nowak!! This year? hmmmmmm…………………
The Dearborn Art Department is hosting their 24th Annual Empty Bowls Dinner at Park Place. This event will take place on Monday, November 23rd, from 4 pm until 6:30 pm. The suggested donation for soup, bread and beverage is $5 per person, this includes a bowl to take home. There will be a raffle that includes many different items and baskets. Snow School will be providing a basket for the raffle. Proceeds from the dinner go to Gleaners Food Bank and Blessings in a Backpack. Support is greatly appreciated!
The Snow Staff will decorate small pie pumpkins for a very worthy cause! Pumpkins will be displayed in the lobby showcases. They will be on display on October 21 with NO ticket sales. Ticket sales will start on Thursday, October 22 and run through Thursday, October 29. Pumpkins will go home with the winners on Friday, October 30. Tickets will be on sale in the morning before school- in the lobby- or from Mrs. Zechar in the Art Room. We have done this the last three years and have generated a nice donation to Make A Wish. Not everyone wins a pumpkin, but every one that buys a ticket helps a charity provide a wonderful experience for a child in need of something special. Many thanks for your participation!

School Zone Safety
The Dearborn Police Department takes your children’s safety seriously and so must you. Read the rest of the letter here:
A School Zone Safety Message from the Dearborn Police Department
Flyers have been sent home for Picture Day on Monday, October 12. Please return the flyer with your order on Picture Day. Say cheese!
On Tuesday of next week, Clark Construction will be pouring concrete to widen the pathway to the new kindergarten entrance door. Students and parents will not be able to access that door for the entire day.
On Tuesday and Wednesday of next week (Oct. 6-7), Clark Construction will be installing a guard rail along the far edge of the parking lot to keep cars from going over the edge. There will be no parking in that whole row on those days.
Thanks for your patience as we work to make the parking lot safer for everyone!
