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 toe doce doeing. It was a much anticipated event and ended up being a very special night indeed.
UVU School of Education students visited Salem Elementary school to facilitate a Engineering and Technology Fair for our fifth and sixth graders. Students learned a lot and had so much fun participating in a variety of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) actvities.

Salem Elementary was delighted to welcome the Utah Opera to our school. During a schoolwide assembly, members of the Utah Opera used a 'Game Show' theme to teach us many different things about music and opera, and of course sang for us. It was a fun assembly and we learned lots!
Kindergarten has been learning about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln during the month of February. We learned how they helped build and unify our nation, the money we find these Presidents on, why we celebrate Presidents Day, and made a three cornered hat like George Washington. Happy Presidents Day!
