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
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.
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.

They watched a rabbit being pulled from a hat, colored scarves magically appearing, and incredible juggling tricks, all courtesy of master magician Paul Brewer. Paul and his side kick, Chief, entertained the students during the Kick-off assembly for Ken Garff’s Road-to-Success reading program.
