PreK students are Sorting with Families!

‘Tis the season! Please join us for Snow Hill Elementary School’s Community Reading Night and Tree Lighting @ the Old Snow Hill Firehouse    

Thursday, November 29, 2018 


Enjoy an evening of holiday cheer, as SHES teachers read a collection of storybooks. Hot cocoa and treats will be served, and each family will receive holiday books to add to their collection. Join us afterwards as we will head to Byrd Park to enjoy the Tree Lighting!

Thank you families for joining Kindergarten for Math Dice Games!!

How can I support the program at home?  

Be a Home Coach by: 

          *Establishing habits and routines to ensure that reading happens every night 
          *Eliminate distractions during reading time 
          *Sign reading log and talk about reading
          *Listen to your child(ren) read 
          *Compliment good reading habits (notice publication, self-correcting. Etc.)  
          *Use the skills card for reference 

Third Graders worked alongside family members to use multiplication to solve word problems!

What a great turnout for 2nd grade families who spent the morning graphing with gingerbread!

100 Book Challenge Kickoff Visitation! 

SHES would like to send out a big thank you to all the parents and family members of Kindergarten through Second Graders who visited our Title 1 Sponsored 100 Book Kickoff/Classroom Visitation on September 19th. This year’s first graders participated in the 100 Book Challenge last year, and the program has now been extended to include all of our K-2 students. 100 Book Challenge is an award-winning reading program that nurtures independent and life-long readers! The program, designed by “The American Reading Company” incorporates in class Reader’s Workshop with high-interest leveled texts, student choice, reading logs, skill cards, individual teacher conferences, incentives and more! Students are also expected to earn two “steps” each night by reading at home for thirty minutes. Parents and family members serve as invaluable partners as Home Coaches. The program aims to increase reading instruction so that your students are successful in their classrooms, on standardized tests, and in their futures. Please look over the provided resources, and don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or Kristina Belcher for more information at  


Thank you so much for your support during American Education Week!
