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.  I am also thankful and grateful for the accomplishments that we have made together as a staff and as a 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.
