SPTO Meeting this Thursday

Just a reminder that the next Salem Parent Teacher Meeting is this Thursday, Nov. 21 at 6:30 pm.

Women's Advent by Candlelight

Advent is a time for us to prepare our hearts for Jesus’ coming. We want our focus to be on Jesus throughout this season, but all too often it seems we get caught up with the preparations in our homes, churches or communities. Advent by Candlelight is an opportunity for women to set aside all of those preparations and focus our hearts and minds again on Jesus.  It is a beautiful afternoon filled with Scripture readings, narration, prayer, songs of praise and Christian fellowship.  Please join us on Saturday, November 30 at 12:00 pm. We will begin with lunch followed by a program and music.  Everyone school age & older are invited to attend.  Please sign-up on the sheet in the narthex before November 26 (or call/email the school office 651-439-7831 school.office@salemlutheran.org).

Round 2 of MLC Meet Math Competition Complete

Our middle school students recently finished the second round of the Martin Luther College Meet Math competition. Students worked on six competition level math problems. You can see our school and individual student results and rankings by visiting https://meetmath.mlc-wels.edu/results/view. Our Salem fifth and sixth-grade students are in the B-5 category, and our seventh and eighth-grade students are in the A-6 category. Categories are determined by school size.

Other test dates this school year are the weeks of  January 13 and February 24.

Meet Math is a service club at Martin Luther College that provides mathematics contests for students in grades 5-12 who are enrolled in WELS or ELS schools. This club also maintains school and individual statistics that are the basis for various awards presented at the end of the school year.

Wear Red, White and Blue Monday, Nov. 11

Please have your child wear red, white and/or blue on Monday, November 11 for our Veterans Day Program on Monday. Any appropriate patriotic attire is encouraged for their participation in the program that day.

A reminder of the event ...

Salem is having a program to honor the veterans that the students at Salem know on November 11th at 2:45 pm. The students will sing patriotic songs, read some poems about our veterans, and thank them for their service. All veterans, their families, and families of Salem are welcome to attend. The students will also be filling out sheets with their veteran’s picture, the branch of service and wars they fought in. We will then use those sheets to make a Wall of Fame where we will hang all of them.

Box Tops Changing Format

Image
BoxTops for Education is changing to an easier format. There are still a few box top coupons on products that can be cut and sent into our school. Please make sure these have a date that has not expired. Most products, however, will now have a new label that says "No More clipping - Scan your receipt". Please do not clip and send us these labels. Instead, you will be able to download the BoxTops app and take a picture of your purchase receipt. This will keep track of our school points much easier!

Using the BoxTops app is very easy. You will have to create a login using your email address, find our school (be sure its Salem Lutheran in Stillwater, MN!!) and that's it!  From here on out we will have to submit the Boxtops through the app within several days of purchasing an eligible item.  As soon as you get in the car or unload those groceries, just quick snap a picture of the receipt through the BoxTop app and you are done! We have been able to receive much-needed funds…
