What's Happening at Salem


11:30am at the Salem School Playground

Join other Kindergartners and their families for a picnic before school starts.  Bring a picnic lunch and the Salem HSA will provide the water and ice pops! Our picnic follows the transportation orientation at 10:30am.  All parents and their incoming Kindergarteners are encouraged to attend this important meeting about our drop-off and pick-up procedures, walker and bus safety. 

Salem Meet the Teacher!
Tuesday, 9/2 between 11:00am and 12 noon

HSA FUNDING PROJECTS: At the last HSA meeting, we announced three projects that the HSA Executive Board recently voted on to financially support for next year:

1) Hydration Filtration System: The HSA will fully fund the installation of two Brita Hydration stations at Salem.  This will provide students a convenient, sustainable alternative to bottled water, filling up reusable containers with great-tasting, cold, filtered water. 

2) WeatherBug Station: The WeatherBug Schools Program involves the implementation of a scientific-grade weather monitoring system that's built to withstand all kinds of environmental conditions!  It collects a unique combination of live weather data, which teachers can incorporate into their curriculums with dynamic graphics, and create lesson plans that teach to education standards with web-based instruction.  The Port Washington Education Foundation partially funded Salem's Compact Committee's grant for a "WeatherBug Station."  The Salem HSA has agreed to fund half of the total cost.

3) Dancing Classrooms: The HSA agreed to fund half of this program for next year's 5th grade. This is a 10 week program during the fall, where 5th grade students participate for 40 minutes 2 times per week to learn different dance routines.  Their experience is curriculum integrated, as students complete writing assignments and other projects on the dances they learn.  The program aims to "foster respect, teamwork, confidence and a sense of joy and accomplishment for every child."  We are happy to help continue this program for next year.

BIRTHDAY BOOK DONATIONS:  If your child's birthday is during the remainder of June, July or August and you would like to donate a book to the Salem library in honor of your child's birthday, please hold onto the book for September 2014. In September, the HSA Friends of the Library will happily post you child's photo on the Birthday Bulletin Board located in the cafeteria. If you want to shop over the summer, the library's current wish list is available on the Salem website. 

SUMMER READING LIST: The Summer Reading list is located on the South Salem Virtual Website and District website. Please join in the enjoyment of reading and stop by Port Washington Public Library and select a book for some summer leisure fun. There are activities for all students. If you have any questions in helping your child with reading levels, please contact Mrs. Koukoulas.
