Fifth Grade Science Fair

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.

Spirit Week

Salem Elementary had a blast with their Spirit Week Feb 29-Mar 2. It was full with crazy sock day, best dress day, Dr. Seuss Day, and of course SCHOOL COLORS!! This year, the students combined Make a Wish Fundraiser with their Spirit Week. They raised monies for a Spanish Fork six-year-old boy, Jacob. His wish is to go to Florida Theme Parks. To accomplish this, they had a Penny War during Spirit Week. Each class had a jar in their room, some teachers hid there's.
