Field Day & Awards Ceremony!

These are two of our biggest end of the year events and we know you won't want to miss them! So here's the scoop:


Our entire school will be treated to a plethora of outdoor inflatables courtesy of Special Events! Everyone will be rotating throughout the day as a class to enjoy all the fun. And our PTA will be serving lunch to everyone! YAY! It's a win for us all!

AWARDS Ceremony - MAY 23rd

Kindergarten through 2nd grade awards will be held in the gym from 9:45 am to 10:45 am.

3rd through 5th grade awards will be held in the gym from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Once our awards ceremony is done, parents are welcomed to sign their student out for the year! Yes you heard that right... let the summer break begin!

Title I Family Fun Event!

May 22nd - 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Snowshoe Family Fun on Inflatables!

Grab the kids and stay a little longer next week after our field day to play on the inflatables with your kids! Everyone is invited to participate in the fun and enjoy a light snack after school lets out for the day. Or if you dip out early during the day come on back at 4:00 p.m. and join us for a continuation of play time!

Updates to Tentative Staffing

As expected, our staffing is continuing to change for the fall 2019-20 school year! Not only are Ms. Zanetti and Ms. Carlson retiring after many, many years of teaching, Mrs. Scott will also be leaving us to move closer to her family in Washington State. Ms. Sauer and Ms. Boman are also moving onto new adventures and will not be at Snowshoe next year. We wish them the best in their new endeavors.

This means our grade levels are up in the air at this time. Be assured that Mr. Moore is committed to hiring the best and the brightest to add to our already awesome teaching staff! Some new staff members joining us next year have already been hired and they include:

  • Mrs. Cochran (2nd grade), Mrs. Linder (1st grade), Ms. Leigh (2nd grade) , Mrs. Vallely (Resource Teacher), and Mrs. Brauneis (school Nurse). And, we still have more new staff to come!

We'd love for that LOST item to be FOUND! Don't forget on your way out to check the lost and found for the final time because after May 23rd all the items left will be donated to a local charity of our choice. We do not have the ability to wash and store items of any kind.
