Taiza Savage, a 2018 Miss Salem contestant, visited Salem Elementary to share a message with first and fourth graders. She focused on anti bullying and self confidence with the goal of having students empowered and confident with who they are. It was a good reminder to students to be kind to one another.
Next week, March 26-30, is SPIRIT WEEK! Here is a list of the scheduled activities:
Monday: Teacher vs. Student; Teachers dress like students, students dress like teachers.
Tuesday: Couch Potato vs. Athlete; Wear PJs or sports gear.
Wednesday: Head vs. Toe; Wear crazy socks or crazy hair.
Thursday: Hero vs. Villain; Dress as favorite hero or villain.
Friday: Blue vs. Yellow; Wear school colors.
Fifth-graders at Salem Elementary recently participated in the Fifth Grade Science Fair. Science fairs are a great way for students to take an active role in science. Fifth-graders used the Scientific Method to help them in understanding and expanding their knowledge of a specific science topic of their choice. Many hours were spent researching and developing their presentations. Students were able to present their scientific findings to students at the school during the day, and then to their parents later that evening.
Oh Johnny Oh! and the Boot Scootin' Boogie were just a few of the dances that fourth graders shared with their parents at their Fourth Grade Hoedown 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.
