Pi Day

Mrs. Larson

Mrs. Larson's class had fun celebrating PI day at school.  A student wanted to teach the class what 3.14 PI was and brought two delicious pies to share. We were very excited and grateful! Here is a cute picture of our class enjoying the pies.

Fifth Grade Science Fair

Fifth-graders at Salem Elementary recently participated in the Fifth Grade Science Fair.  Science fairs are a great way for students to take an active role in science. Fifth-graders used the Scientific Method to help them in understanding and expanding their knowledge of a specific science topic of their choice.  Many hours were spent researching and developing their presentations.  Students were able to present their scientific findings to students at the school during the day, and then to their parents later that evening.

Reading Carnival


Students had a blast at the Reading Carnival.  So many fun things to do and yummy treats to eat.  Definitely a great reward for all the time spent reading!  Keep up with your reading these last few weeks to earn more tickets for our end of year carnival!
