On the night of November 16, 5th graders at Salem Elementary were on station and ready to come to life to present their annual “Night at the Museum” for parents and the community. This culminating activity had started a month and a half earlier, as each fifth grade student chose a famous person from history and then researched so they could do a biographical account on their famous person. They then wrote a report, created and memorized a blurb, made wonderful backdrops, came up with exciting props and then dramatized their famous person, live and in person at the “Salem Elementary Museum of Natural History”.  Every student made their character very unique and likable and gave the community a fun filled evening of history spanning from ancient to present day. Great Job! Salem Elementary fifth graders.

Over the past weekend we celbrated Veteran's Day. On Monday morning, Salem Elementary students paid tribute to our Veterans in a Veteran's Day Assembly.  During the assembly Veterans introduced themselves adn told us when and where they have served.  We also watched a short video clip which informed students of the meaning behind the Star Spangled Banner, what the words really mean, and then we all stood together to sing it. We thank our veterans for the sacrifices they made so that we may enjoy our freedom each and every day.

Life Flight and Salem City's emergency responders visited our school's playground for Red Ribbon Week. Students were filled with excitement while anticipating the arrival of Life Flight.  Then, what an awesome sight it was, to watch the helicopter actually land on our school's field.  After it landed, students got an up close look at the helicopter and were able to learn a few facts about Life Flight.  Then at lunch, Salem City brought a fire truck, amublance, and police cars for students to see.  Thank you to these fine men and women for all they do to help in emergencies and keep our city safe.

Fourth graders walked up to the Salem City Cemetery last week to participate in several learning activities. Students used subtraction to solve and find how many years people lived, looked for people who had served in the military, and also tried to find the person who was born the earliest in history.  

Students observed the plants and animals that they saw, as well as the weather and clouds.  They also looked for unique designs on headstones and did pencil rubbings.

Finally, students wrote about the thoughts and feelings they had while visiting the cemetery. It was a beautiful day to not only learn, but to honor those who are laid to rest in our city's cemetery.
