Newark Unified is participating in the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) this school year.
CHKS is an anonymous, confidential survey of school climate and safety, student wellness, and youth resiliency. It is administered to students at grades five, seven, nine, and eleven. It enables schools and communities to collect and analyze data regarding local youth health risks and behaviors, school connectedness, school climate, protective factors, and school violence.
Please contact your student’s school office directly to obtain access to the parent/guardian survey; follow this link to learn more about CHKS: https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/he/at/chks.asp.

Notes from the Principal
Dear Snow Families,
We have so much to be thankful for during this season of thanksgiving. As I shared with Snow Teachers and Staff, I recently saw a marquee with the question, “What are you thankful for?” As I thought about this question many things came to my mind. Just to name a few, family, friends, Snow teachers, staff, students, parents and community.

At H. A. Snow Elementary School, we prepare our students for a successful life by providing a world-class education that supports all children with a thought-provoking, academically rigorous education, within a safe, compassionate, and tolerant school.
At Snow School we have a Bill of Rights for Students:
Students have the right to learn in a safe, compassionate, tolerant school with people who collaborate, have high expectations, and advocate for their well-being both socially and academically because we believe that ALL children deserve a robust, thought-provoking, rigorous education.
Students are encouraged, and have the right, to be active class members in making decisions and problem solving, so they become compassionate leaders who understand societal expectations and serve as stewards of the world.

Newark Unified School District strives for continuous improvement in our service to students and families. We achieve this through evaluating our outcomes, identifying strengths, developing recommendations for improvement, and refining our practices.
One of the ways we evaluate our strengths and find areas for improvement is by asking parents/guardians about their experiences and recommendations.
Please take a few minutes to provide us feedback that will inform our areas of focus for improvement, our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), and our future practices.
