Book Exchange

Do you have books that are sitting on your shelf collecting dust?  Every month Salem Elementary does a book exchange.  Students are encouraged to bring a book from home that they no longer want.  In return they can exchange the book for a different book that they have not read or wish to read again.  These books are either new or used and it’s a great way to help students discover new books and encourage reading.

September 11

On September 11, Salem Elementary was honored to have some of our country's service men and women, from within our community of Salem, visit our school.   They talked to students about what they did to serve the United States of America, as well as what they do now to serve in our community.  Students were fascinated to hear of what they did and how they lived while serving our country.  We are so lucky to live in such a great country and community and are very grateful for the sacrifices made by these men and women.
