Most of you may not know it, but every January, Salem Elementary holds a faculty ping pong tournament. Most would be surprised to know of the table tennis talent we have within our faculty, and it gets pretty competitive as you can imagine. After battling it out with single elimination, our winning team this year is Mr. Hansen and Mrs. Nybo. Congratulations!
We all look forward to the holidays, and before we know it they are here and then gone! Here is a look when our hallways and classrooms were filled with hoilday cheer. Mrs. Bangerters class making Holiday Tree Treats. The kids had a blast decorating and eating their candies.
Things have settled down, and although our classrooms are no longer filled with holiday cheer, they are still filled with a delightsome bunch of kiddos learning and teachers working hard to do our best in this new year!
Congratulations to the following students for earning STAR cards in the month of December: Ty Evans, Delila Pingel, Averi Prior, Kenya Campbell, Kylan Shepherd, Austin Wybrant, Jonathan Hansen, Julia Walker, Selena Johnson, Owen Healy, Jayce Thompson, Katelyn Patrick, Paislee Carter, Krew Smith, Jubal Tate, Natalie Prettyman, Laila Shepherd, Addison Hamrick, Maverick Billings, Andrea Johnson, Sadie Beal, Zach Davis, Brandon Lewis.
Thanks for making our school shine!
"The best way to bring Christmas cheer is ringing loud for all to hear" is the motto of a sweet grandmother of some of our Salem Students. She, along with her friends, Mrs. Clause and Rudolph, visited her granddaughters' classrooms to spread Christmas cheer with music and handbells. Students had a delightful time!
All the hard work finally paid off when Mr. Hansen's sixth-graders performed A Christmas Carol. Students had been working for months to memorize and perfect each of their parts. There were days when they even sacrificed some of their P.E. time to practice the play. By the time the big day rolled around, they were well prepared to entertain us all!
Just a reminder that there will be a performance at 6:00 tonight for parents..
Salem Elementary's Christmas Assembly is a fun tradition that is always much anticipated by all students. Students sing Christmas songs as a grade level, the fifth graders play their recorders, and sixth graders sing while playing ukeleles . Definitly a great way to show school spirit and spread some holiday cheer.
