Snow smart  
Activity Date: 5/19/2017

 

Students & Parents,

This page will assist you with knowing what to do during a snowSMART day.

This is another term for a "snow day" in which students must work/complete assignments from home. However, we do have snow days built into our district calendar. We also have time for make up days that we will add to the school year before resulting to the snowSMART days. Therefore, this day will be used in an emergency situation and you will be notified if and when the district intends to use it.

The special area teachers have all decided to have fun links provided for the students during snow smart days. Please go to the links tab and use the last two links provided on the page. One is the Dallas Symphony Orchestra site and the other is the Philharmonic site.

These assignments are optional. If you would like to share your work with me:

You may email me your work or print a copy and bring it in to school.

There is enough work for you to do at least 3 days worth or 3 separate activities.
