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.
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.
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.
Star Cards are given to students who are caught doing great things around our school. These Salem Stars really shine: Riley Thatcher, Kristine Rhodes, Gavin Shepherd, Kylan Shepherd, Jessie Christensen, Grace Holley, Haylee Stewart, Brookely Orton, Mylee Jense, Jaden Holley, Aubrey Taylort, Emma Sackett, Jackson Eyre, Chloe Peterson, Caulyn Wilde, McKenzie Beddoes, Treyden Reynolds, Kiara Otiz, Charity Houghton, Trevin Ortrega, Hadi Olsen, Kylee Thornock.

Do you have books that are sitting on your shelf collecting dust? Every month Salem Elementary does a book exchange. Students are encouraged to bring a book from home that they no longer want. In return they can exchange the book for a different book that they have not read or wish to read again. These books are either new or used and it’s a great way to help students discover new books and encourage reading.
On September 11, Salem Elementary was honored to have some of our country's service men and women, from within our community of Salem, visit our school. They talked to students about what they did to serve the United States of America, as well as what they do now to serve in our community. Students were fascinated to hear of what they did and how they lived while serving our country. We are so lucky to live in such a great country and community and are very grateful for the sacrifices made by these men and women.
