Cheerleading Coach Needed

Salem is still looking for a cheerleading coach this winter sports season! Mrs. Klatt also needs to know who is interested in being a cheerleader!  If there isn't much interest or we don't find a coach, we will not be able to have cheerleading. Please email Mrs. Klatt with any information. Thank you!

Stopping Ink Cartridge Collection

We are not able to continue our ink cartridge collection due to the lack of programs available for us to participate in. Please do not drop ink cartridges off at school. 

We will still be collecting Boxtops for Education and those can be dropped off at the school entrance. Aluminum cans are also still being collected and can be dropped off in the bin next to the garage on Panama Ave.
