A Special Visit

The Easter Bunny visited the students in High Road at Snow Hill Middle School! The students worked hard during an Easter egg hunt as eggs were scattered throughout Snow Hill Middle School's front patio.

At one point, Thomas dropped some candy on the ground and Eli helped him pick it up so he would not miss out on the fun! Instead of getting frustrated, Eli and Thomas worked together and helped one another. With two [...]

He had some fears about using the machine safely to complete his task, however he came up with a great idea, and he really wanted to see it through. With the [...]

Milkshake Time

Snow Hill High School has been mixing up their Fun Fridays, lately. Staff feels it's important to have different types of rewards and reinforcements so that students don't become bored with the same thing week after week. So we decided to have a milkshake party as a reward for everybody’s hard work all week staying on blue level. First we showed them how to use the blender safely, and then the students created their own customized shakes, with ice cream and different toppings of their choice. Pictured are senior Skyler and freshman Dustin mixing up their personalized [...]
