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.
