  "You're off to great places! Today is your day!  Your mountain is waiting so...get on your way!"      -Dr. Seuss

These first graders are definitely on their way to move mountains, and it showed in their first grade program, "Oh! The Places You'll Go!".  It was an absolute delight.

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on

Second graders at Salem Elementary have learned so much about animals and their habitats, and it shows!  Students selected an animal to research, write about, and then create a diorama display.  Students were excited to share all they had learned and created with the rest of the school.  Great job second graders!

It was a perfect day for a track meet.  The sun was shining while kids were speeding down the track.  Students from Salem Elementary represented our school well, as several made it into finals and placed in their events.  You can go to Salem City's recreation web page to find official results.  Way to go 3rd and 4th graders.
