Kindergarten Registration is Moving to Summer


Kindergarten registration, traditionally held in March, will be moved to the summer and combined with grades 1st -12th. More detailed information regarding summer registration for K-6th will be sent out to you before the end of the school year.

Parents can prepare now for registering their kindergarten children by making sure they have a birth certificate and that their child is current on the following immunizations: DTap, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Polio, Varicella and MMR by the end of July.  

Happy President's Day!


Kindergarten has been learning about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln during the month of February. We learned how they helped build and unify our nation, the money we find these Presidents on, why we celebrate Presidents Day, and made a three cornered hat like George Washington. Happy Presidents Day!

Spelling Bee Finalists

Good job to all those who participated in the school spelling bee, and congratulations to the winners: Nate Thorne, first place; Julia Walker, second place; and Will Turner, third place.

Somebody Loves You

Salem fourth graders read the book, "Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch!", a sweet tale of how our actions, even small ones, can change lives. After, students made card kits that will be delivered to Primary Children's Hospital.  A special thanks to our Literacy Coach, Mrs. Coates, for helping us with this fun project.

100 Days of School


One hundred days of school, time to celebrate!!

Kindergarten celebrated 100 days of school January, 28. We did 100 exercises, sat quietly for 100 seconds, made 100 day crowns, took a 100 step walk, watched 100 pennies magically change to $1.00, estimated what 100 drops of water looked like, and counted 100 objects.  It was a busy and fun day!

White Ribbon Week

Last week was White Ribbon Week at Salem Elementary to teach kids about Media Safety and Anti Bullying.  To kick off the week, we had a Net Smart assembly to teach kids appropriate ways to use the internet.  Students were all given a white wristband to wear for the week.  On Wednesday, students and teachers were encouraged to wear white.  Thursday, students came to school dressed as their favorite super hero, and on Friday students dressed in school colors to show school spirit.
