CHANGE OF DATE FOR NEXT HSA MEETING!

Monday, May 18th 9:30 AM
Please join us for our next HSA meeting where we will discuss the upcoming budget vote, vote in the slate for the 2015/16 Executive Board and hear about the all of our HSA events. Additionally, we would like to discuss with you that the HSA Executive Board is considering funding $20,000 for a technology investment before the end of the current school year: 27 ipads for multi-purpose use at Salem. These ipads would be set up like our chrome carts in the library for all teachers and all grades and classes to use for various educational projects. We would like to share our enthusiasm for this initiative with our parents at our HSA meeting and get feedback. Please contact the co-presidents with your comments and concerns.

 

STAFF APPRECIATION LUNCH:

Thursday, May 21st
Thursday, May 21st is our chance to show everyone at Salem how appreciative we are for what they do to make our school such a wonderful place to learn and play. Donations are still needed to make this luncheon a success!!! A form went home in the backpacks listing what is needed. If you do not want to make or buy something, please send in a cash donation and we will purchase what we are still in need of. Questions? Please contact Michelle Lefcourt (michelle.lefcourt@gmail.com), Bonnie Tanguay (jbctanguay@gmail.com) or Mandy Klarman (Mlk203@hotmail.com).

Also, we would love each student to make a sign (no larger than 8 ½ x 11) thanking any staff member(s) of his/her choice. The signs will be hung in the faculty lounge during the luncheon. We have done this in previous years, and the teachers love seeing the children's drawings. We distribute the artwork to the teachers at the end of the day.
