Kindness missions were executed throughout the Snyder Primary School campus this week! In addition to fun dress up days, SPS Counselors Amy Crist and Lacee Wall delivered top secret missions to students. Missions included writing letters of appreciation to Snyder police officers, firefighters, EMS, and Cogdell hospital workers. They also left tokens of appreciation for school staff such as school nurses, librarians, office staff, custodians, cafeteria workers, principals, computer lab teachers, PE teachers, music teachers, and arts. Students also wrote messages of kindness on index cards to put in library books and put outside on cars. How can you surprise someone with a random act of kindness today?

Do you have questions about the ParentSquare app? We've had over 100 parents download the app in the last 24 hours! Prior to ParentSquare, we had over 10 different apps being used by schools and organizations in the district. ParentSquare is a one-stop-shop secure platform that syncs with our student information system - which means your child's class schedule and teachers are automatically loaded and any changes made to a phone number or email address are also updated in ParentSquare. If you are new to the app, it may be easy to get overwhelmed by all of the new features, but we are here to help. Here is a quick overview video of how to navigate through the app. If you have any questions, you can always reach out by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. How to Use the App Video (English): https://vimeo.com/307587191/55b5893b30 How to Use the App Video (Spanish): https://vimeo.com/312804590 These videos will show you how to download the app, if you haven't already, and then walk you through how to use each feature. *Please note, this video mentions attendance notifications and payments, which are features we will roll out in the near future!
Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to make a call on the very first telephone? This week the students combined their research talents and their imaginations to create historical fiction presentations. Each student presented information about a revolutionary invention as if they were there when it was created for the first time! These are the best friends of Alexander Graham Bell, Johannes Gutenberg, Thomas Edison, the Wright Brothers, and even the caveman who discovered fire. The students traveled back in time and shared with one another what it was like to live at a time before the crucial invention, and then how the creation of the invention changed their lives!
Readers & Leaders! Each morning, Snyder Primary School principals recognize students who have reached their leadership or reading step goals. This morning, they recognized 30 students for reading and 30 students for leadership! 📖 Students earn "steps" for reading. Fifteen minutes = 1 step. For every 100 steps, they receive a reward! ⭐️ Students earn Leader Bucks for dozens of leadership traits: being a good friend, working hard in class, behaving well for the substitute, and tidiness, just to name a few. #webelieveinsisd
