Dear Salem Families,

We sure hope all of our Salem families enjoyed the Thanksgiving Break this past week. We are so excited to kick off our Book Fair TOMORROW! 


Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that provides the books kids want to read. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Dori Hailu via the Salem Elementary PTA Facebook page.  The book fair offers a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to come. Make our Book Fair successful. Be involved in shaping your child's reading habits!


Book Fair Hours:

        Tuesday Nov 29 to Dec 3rd - 9:30am to 3:00pm

        Monday Dec 5th - 9:30am to 1:00pm and 5:00pm to 7:00pm

        Tuesday Dec 6th to Dec 8th - 9:30am to 3:00pm


Come visit during your child’s wish list time slot, you will receive that from your teacher, or any other time that works best for you. Click HERE to set up your child's eWallet, the easiest way for them to shop!


Holiday Hugs is back!

Holiday Hugs is a yearly program that supports Salem families needing assistance affording holiday gifts for their children. It is not a gift exchange program; it is designed to help parents give gifts to their children who otherwise would not be able to do so. Our goal is to give 91 children a shirt, a pair of pants, a pair of shoes, and one toy/gift. You can support this program by signing up to sponsor a child on SignUp Genius here



From the PTA:
