Salem Elementary students are given the challenge to work on academic and personal goals throughout the year. When students complete the required number of goals, students are awarded the Star Award during a school assembly, the first of which was held on January 24th. During the assembly we were priveleged to hear Hannah and Lydia Wright perform on their cellos. Congratulations to those who earned the Super Star Award
Val-O-Grams will be going on February 12th-14th. Please be sure to come to school early so that you have enough time to buy, fill out, and sort your Val-O-Grams before school starts. PTA helpers will be there to help students fill out the Val-O-Grams more quickly. Parents are also welcome to come and help their child.
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, and the fifth graders play their recorders. This year we had a special surprise dance, "What Does the Reindeer Say," by the sixth graders.
The assembly is also a time to reward students for their reading. Students receive tickets throughout the year for their reading. Their tickets are entered into a drawing. During the assembly names are drawn for prizes.
The generousity of students from Mrs. James' and Mrs. Thatcher's second grade class touched the lives of many during this holiday season.
Parents and students generously donated fleece to make blankets, and then delivered the blankets to the Salem Beehive Home and to Latter Days Assisted Living in Santaquin.
Students sang Christmas songs, and then passed out the blankets to the residence of these homes. Smiles were seen on all faces, both young and old.
It was an experience all will remember and cherish!!
