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!!
“The Magic of a Moment…” was the theme for this year’s PTA Reflections Program. The Reflections Program provides an opportunity for students to express themselves artistically and to use their creativity for both fun and recognition. Students may submit entries in the following arts areas: dance choreography, film production, theatre, literature, musical composition, photography, visual arts, and 3D.
