Second Grade Visits Heritage Park

The 2nd graders in Mrs. Hooley's class took a walking field trip to heritage park. They learned all about the community of the past, about the ways pioneers lived, and how to churn butter.  Special thanks to the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers for showing us all the amazing things right here in Salem.

Our new speech therapists have been doing fun lessons with the Kindergartners! They recently practiced the "sh" sound with a song called "Wishy Washy Wee!"

Drama in the Classroom

And action! Mrs. Bean, our district drama specialist, visited our classes today at Salem Elementary to show us how we can connect drama and reading. It really made reading fun and meaningful!

Subtraction Bowling

Attributions: 

Strike, spare, gutter-ball!  Mrs. Hooley's 2nd graders spent the afternoon doing subtraction bowling.  The students rolled a tennis ball at red plastic cups and subtracted the number of cups they knocked down from 10.  Fun was had by all, as well as a little math practice.

Family Carnival and Auction

Salem Elementary Family Carnival and Auction was held on Monday night, and what a fun night it was.  The parking lot was filled with food trucks and the field was field with several games and activities.  There were carnival games, bounce houses, an obstacle course, balloon twisters, raffle items, and the auction.  The classroom basket auction was a success and raised quite a bit of money for our school.  We would like to thank all those who donated to the themed baskets, and also to those who purchased them.

First Week of Kindergarten

Attributions: 

It was a big week for the new kindergarteners.  First day of school, science experiments with apples, observing caterpillars, and buddy reading with some of the fourth-graders!  

Such a fun and exciting time for these kids, Salem Elementary welcomes them to our school!

Our STARS Will Shine

Attributions: 

At Salem Elementary School we are STARS, but what does that really mean? It is more than just the symbol of a star, it actually stands for something: Students and Staff that are Responsible, Respectiful, and Successful. 

To help our STARS really shine this year, the whole student body rotated through various stations where they reviewed how to be responsible, respectful, and successful in different routines and areas of the school. 

We know we have a great year ahead of us and our STARS will shine.
