Since our return from the Christmas holidays, Salem has been a bustle of activity within our classrooms! Scientists in the classroom, volleyball tournament, dance workshop, developing skills in technology are some of the many activities underway. A special thank you to all staff members, who work hard to enrich the learning experiences for our students.
With days well below zero and days above 10 degrees celsius, it's hard to convince our kids to wear warm coats. Even the adults aren't sure whether to wear their boots or not! Since the weather changes daily, please help us by making sure students come prepared with boots, hats and mittens.
Our wonderful Ice Rink Volunteers, under the guidance of Gary and Tim, have successfully created the ice rink for the third time. A big thank you goes out to them from the Salem Students and Staff for ensuring the students have a place to skate.
Kindergarten registration will run from February 4th - 8th. If you know of any little ones who might be of age, please let them know to come to the school during that week.
February 11th will mark the start of our first Read-A-Thon. We hope that you will help support the event as we look forward to purchasing new technology for the children to access. Special Reading Events will be held throughout our Read-A-Thon weeks. More information and pledge sheets will be sent home after our kick-off assembly on Monday February 11th.
