Fun Projects at Snow Hill Middle

Teacher Ms. Courtney and Social Worker Ms. Taylor have been working with our students on a project, using balloons, tissue paper, and mod podge to create colored light covers. Many of the students in the classroom have sensory sensitivities, and we are hopeful that the dimmer lighting will be helpful in creating a more welcoming environment. We also had a celebration for student Dustin Bratten's 50th day on Blue level in our behavior management system. Go Dustin! 😊
