Salamander News 11/14


Dear Salem Families,

We are happy to celebrate our Teacher of the Year, Joyce Flynn who is one of our 5th grade teachers! We are also happy to announce our Instructional Assistant of the Year, Danielle Brezina, who works in our ECS 2 classroom! Thank you, both, for all of the numerous ways you support our Salem students, staff, and families! We could not be more excited to celebrate you and have you represent our school. 


It’s time to chase down that Turkey at Apex Community Park on Saturday, November 19th at 10am. Join Salamanders on the Run in participating in this fun, family-friendly event! The course will take you through the park and around a scenic lake. Click HERE to learn more and register!




From the PTA:

Copy helpers wanted! Salem is looking for two volunteers per track to help make photocopies for teachers. We plan to have each volunteer (per track) come once a week for approximately an hour on a set day/time to make copies and prep other learning materials. Volunteers would come once a week during their “track in” time. Please email Jenny Byer at if you are interested in signing up. Training will be provided and you must be an approved WCPSS volunteer. 


Lunch Volunteers! Don’t forget - if you’d like to volunteer to help in the cafeteria during lunch you can click on the link below for more information and to sign up!



Dr. Sarah Oatsvall, Principal
