Talented Teachers

As you know, Salem Elementary has some very talented teachers.  Students were taken by surprise when during an assembly, some of these teachers debuted their hidden talent in a song and dance to Taylor Swift's song, Shake it Off.

Mr. Welburn Reads to Students


This month Mr. Welburn read the book The Dot by Peter Reynolds to students at Salem Elementary.  The message students learned was to be creative.  Students love the stories and lessons that Mr. Welburn shares each month.

Christmas Sing Along
