Second Graders were very excited to visit Harward Farms for Farm Field Days. Students enjoyed learning about agriculture in our home state of Utah. We learned that milk comes from dairy cows, hamburger comes from beef cows, eggs come from chickens, wheat grows in a field and is harvested and ground into flour, wool comes from sheep and is used to make clothing, and much, much more! It was a fun day on the farm indeed!
Star Cards are given to students who are caught doing great things around our school. These Salem Stars really shine: Tagge Johnson, Alyvia Black, Cambrie Peterson, Janin Allan, Greyson Williams, Kensley Noyes, Durango Campbell, Reece Ashby, Andrea Johnson, Averi Prior, Allie Moore, Keeley Carter, Jarett Rogers, Maggie Van Orman, Reece Olsen, Lilie Mitchell, Brynn Heughly
Last night was Salem Elementary's debut debate tournament. The students had been working hard and had given up much time away from going to specialists. They researched this years topic of, "The state of Utah should ban the use of plastic grocery bags and disposable water bottles". They either chose an affirmative or negative point of view. They debated students from other Nebo schools. Thier hopes were high, but epectations were very low. As scores began to come in, it was clear that they were a talented buch of debaters.
On Friday, March 7, Salem Elementary's kindergarten students excitedly showed up to school, sporting their new cars. Their cardboard, Kindy 500 Cars, that is. Students then drove their cars through the hallways of school, making several stops throughout the day, to learn about many of our Nation's memorials and patriotic symbols. Students had a wonderful time on their road trip, visiting Lincoln Memorial, The Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell, Mt. Rushmore, a Bald Eagle, and more! Students were especially excited for the soveniers that they were able to take home.
Oh Johnny Oh! and the Boot Scootin' Boogie were just a few of the dances that fourth graders shared with their parents on their Fourth Grade Dance Night. A lot of smiles were seen while both students and parents tore it up on the dance floor with a little heel toing and doce doeing. It was a much anticipated event and ended up being a very special night indeed.
Salem Elementary Kindergarteners invited their grandparents to come to school with them for Grandparents Day. It is such a fun day for Kindergarteners. They are so excited to have the opportunity to be the 'teacher' and teach their grandparents some of the things they do each day at school. Grandparents are always amazed at how much their grandchild knows and has learned in Kindergarten! A lot has changed since they were in kindergarten!
