Strike, Spare, Gutter ball!  Mrs. Hooley's second-graders went subtraction bowling.  Each player rolled the ball at cups and knocked down as many as they could.  Then they subtracted the number knocked down from 10.  A great time was had by all!

Salem Elementary participates in the GAINS program: Growing Arts In Nebo Schools. Each year a Fine Arts specialist works with the teachers of Salem Elementary to help integrate the arts into the classroom curriculum. This year we have a dance specialist, Melanie Fillmore, working at our school. Today students got to explore opposites through movement; stop/go, fast/slow, and high/low. Also, teachers got some great ideas to implement in their classrooms.
