On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving Break, Salem Elementary second-graders learned more about the daily life of our Pilgrims and Native Americans.   Students ground corn to use in cornbread, made butter with an old butter churn, and then enjoyed the two together as a tasty treat.  They made bracelets from wool and headbands with feathers.  They sewed pouches and made candles.  Students learned how to weave.  It was a fun filled day with lots of hands on learning, not to mention, a great way to celebrate the upcoming holiday!

Every year it is a tradition for Salem Elementary to hold a Turkey Gobbling contest. There are three categories, strut, gobbler, and combo. The winners and participants of the strut and gobbler received a candy bar while the winners of the combo received a turkey! They are judged by grade level.  We definitely had a great time this year!!

Fourth-graders went to Spanish Fork Canyon to learn about plants and animals of Utah. People from the Forest Service taught them about different birds, and helped them bird watch. Then they learned about how to keep the freshwater streams healthy. Students were able to put on waders and look for different species in the water. They also tested the PH levels of the water to make sure they were safe for plants and animals to live there. Finally, fourth-graders took a hike and saw different habitats of birds, beavers, and trout. It was such a fun day

 

School Lunch Week

During School Lunch week, Salem Elementary students were able to share the goodness of school lunch with their families!  Thank you for all those who came, and especially thanks to our lunch ladies who work very hard to prepare lunch for our students each and every day!

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, Spirit Day, a classroom banner contest, an assembly with drug dogs, and a day where the city of Salem provided an ambulance, police car and fire truck for students to see on their playground.
