On the evening of November 14, the hard working 5th graders at Salem Elementary were on station and ready to come to life to present their annual “Night at the Museum” for parents and the community. This culminating activity had started a month and a half earlier, as each fifth grade student chose a famous person from history and then researched so they could do a biographical account on their famous person.
It's always a treat for students to have a story read aloud to them by our principal, Mr. Welburn. This month he read Mr. Peabody's Apples, a fun story that reminded us not to be so quick to judge others and to remember our words. Mrs. Albrecht joined in on the fun and read a Halloween poem for two voices with Mr. Welburn. We look forward to next month!
Good times were had at the Salem Elementary Fall Family Festival, while students and families enjoyed music , dancing, bounce houses, yummy food, and fun friends. The classroon basket auction was a huge success, raising around $5,000, which will be used to help provide the school with new technology. The PTO and Salem Elementary appreciates all those that bid generously on the baskets and those that donated items to fill them. A special thanks to Esplin Eye Center for sponsoring the bounce house and slide, WiseGuys Pizza for providing the yummy food, and of course our awesome PTO!!!
