Halloween Parade

Halloween was a real treat for both students and teachers at Salem Elementary.  They all enjoyed the warm, sunny Halloween Day as they paraded around our school and the city block.  

Red Ribbon Week

Last week was Red Ribbon week at Salem Elementary! Red Ribbon Week is a week long effort in which everyone at school shows their support of being drug free by wearing a red ribbon.

Salem Elementary’s PTA planned several activities throughout the week to help students learn the importance of living a drug free life. Some of the activities that students participated in were: Red Day, crazy sock day, sport day, a classroom banner contest, and a day where the city of Salem provided an ambulance, police car and fire truck for students to see on their playground.

Fall Family Carnival

We would like to thank everyone that helped with and supported our Fall Family Carnival.  The classroon basket auction was a huge success, we were able to raise $3,100 to go towards a new marquee for the school.  The PTA appreciates all those that bid generously on the baskets and those that donated items to fill them.  Esplin Eye Center and Sunroc helped sponsor our carnival and Jeff Higginson was kind enough to be our auctioneer for the evening.

Salem: Then and Now

On Tuesday, October 2, 2012, the Daughters of Utah Pioneer volunteers welcomed Salem Elementary second-graders to Heritage Park, located on the north-west end of Salem Pond.

In second-grade, students learn and examine important aspects of their community and how their community has changed over time.

Second Grade Community Field Trip

Alyse James and Nikki Savage

As part of their Community Helpers Unit in Social Studies, second-graders visited the Salem City Office, where they were able to participate in a mock city council meeting.  They learned about city councils and how they make laws for our city!  Students were introduced to the city council members through powerpoint, and informed on what each person was in charge of.  Then students were able to sit in those chairs, and were presented with a mock issue, heard oposing sides, and then voted on a decision.  It was lots of fun and very informative.

Salem Hills High School Choir

On Tuesday, October 2, Salem Elementary had the opportunity to visit Salem Hills HIgh School where they enjoyed a performance by the high school's choir.  Students look forward to these occasions, as many of them know and look up to several of the choir members.  Elementary students enjoyed all of the songs, but of course The Sky Hawk song is the favorite of many, and can be heard for days after being sung throughout the halls in our elementary school.
