food portion size; pickiness; vitamins; meals on the run, and
take your questions. Please join us for this important discussion,

joining the HSA board, and much more!

SCRIP is BACK!
Stock up on all your gift cards needs without the hassle of
going from store to store. The next SCRIP order will be coming
home this week! You probably have birthday parties on the horizon,
so order your gift cards. Think about your day to day spending:
Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, Stop 'N Shop etc. Simply purchase
gift cards from SCRIP for your personal purchases and support
Salem without spending extra! Even if 25% of the school used
SCRIP we could come closer to achieving our fundraising goals.
