Full Day of School September 25

Dear Salem Families, Due to COVID, we will not have grandparents at our school this year to celebrate Grandparents Day on Friday, September 25 as we normally do. Because of this, we are changing the schedule from a half day to a full day of school. Please contact your child's teacher if you have concerns with the schedule change.

Please Save Those Pop Tabs!

Mrs. Hasselquist and her class are supporting The Ronald McDonald House by participating in the Pop Tab program. Her classroom has been part of this program for around 16 years and they have collected over 200 lbs of pop tabs. The cash received from these goes directly to support Ronald McDonald House.They can be brought to the bin at the entrance to school or directly to her classroom.

Thank you!

No Busing on Fridays

Sorry for the miscommunication on our blog. There was no busing today. We will not have busing on Fridays until further notice.

Car Name Display

The youngest K-8 child in the family will be bringing home a sign with your family name on it. Please place in the dash-board of your car when you pick up your child(ren). This will help notify us when we release students at the end of the day. This is especially helpfull on rainy days or for future cold days when we only send them out once you have arrived. If you need more than one for multiple cars in the family, feel free to make your own or contact the school office and we will be happy to print more for you. Thank you for your help!

We'll begin with a 4-week study called "Death: Then What?" For the past 5 months, I've heard a lot of people discussing death and dying.

TELL Africa the Good News Sep 09, 2020 04:21 am | The TELL Network leverages the internet to deliver Bible teaching to students all over the worldIn 2018 WELS World Mission’s Multi-Language Publications had a vision to reach the world with the Gospel in a new way. Their vision was to equip people with the truth of God’s word using digital resources in English. Like the Latin America mission field’s Spanish Academia Cristo, TELL would use English to reach people through social media, self-led Bible lessons and live video classrooms.Three years later, God has blessed that vision. The TELL Network has 1.2 million followers and likes on its main Facebook page. Across the globe there are 7,000 active users doing self-led Bible lessons on the TELL app and website.

Inter-state Order Information
Dear Salem school family--In light of current challenges related to classroom gathering, Salem is introducing a new approach to Sunday school. Beginning Sunday, September 13th, lessons taught by experienced WELS teachers will be available free via YouTube. The engaging and age-appropriate Lesson Videos will tie to printed Student Lessons that Salem will provide to you at no cost. This new approach presents an easy yet meaningful way for you to encourage your child’s faith in Christ. The videos are about 10-12 minutes for PreK-K, 1-2, and 3-4. Grades 5-6 will run about 25 minutes because lessons for this level are structured differently. To see a preview of the Sunday, September 13th Lesson Video and Student Lesson, visit

This is also an opportunity to share the good news about Jesus with friends and neighbors. If you know someone with children who might benefit from these materials, please feel free to order and share them. Please reply by September 6th to Amy Stilw…
