Mrs. Lewis’ sixth-graders are learning about many different countries around the world. Students were asked to find four sources and write a two page report on their country, and then asked to prepared a presentation to share with their classmates. Students worked really hard, spending around two months on the whole process, and they all did a fantastic job.
Fourth-graders had a blast on their field trip a couple of weeks ago. They went bowling and then attended a show at Bean Museum where they learned about the ecosystems in Utah. It was a fun way to build character and friendships, as well as review the plants, animals, and environments of Utah.
Fifth-graders at Salem Elementary recently participated in the Fifth Grade Science Fair. Science fairs are a great way for students to take an active role in science. Fifth-graders used the Scientific Method to help them in understanding and expanding their knowledge of a specific science topic of their choice. Many hours were spent researching and developing their presentations. Students were able to present their scientific findings to students at the school during the day, and then to their parents later that evening.

Oh Johnny Oh! and the Boot Scootin' Boogie were just a few of the dances that fourth graders shared with their parents at their Fourth Grade Hoedown Dance Night. A lot of smiles were seen while both students and parents tore it up on the dance floor with a little heel toe doce doeing. It was a much anticipated event and ended up being a very special night indeed.
