May Salem School News

  COVID School Year Salem has had some instances of students being exposed to COVID since spring break. The implications so far have been minimal and we pray that continues. We are thankful for parents and families who are keeping their children home when sick, thus allowing us to continue to minimize having our school year interrupted by exposures. Call Meeting Held Mrs. Naomi Getka returned the call to teach 3rd and 4th grade and Paul Schulz returned the call to teach 5th-8th grade and be Technology Director. After they returned the calls the School Board decided and it was approved by the Voters on Monday, that 3rd and 4th grade would be split for next year. This means that Mrs. Hasselquist will be teaching 4th-grade full-time next year. Salem called Thomas Stob (currently serving at Zion Lutheran in Denver, CO) to be our 3rd-grade teacher and Athletic Director as well as calling Christine Rindfleisch (currently serving at St. Johns Lutheran in Wauwatosa, WI) to be 5-8th grade

May Lunch Menu

The good news is that free school lunches will be extended through the end of the school year! The only cost to you will be cold lunch milk and extra milk purchases. We have been thankful to pass this blessing on to you this school year.  The lunch balance that you have at the end of this school year will be carried over to the 2021-2022 school year. Refunds can be requested if you are not reenrolling. You will be sent a notification in May as to what your current balance is. Many of you will have a great start to the next school year with your current balance, others can put more money in their lunch account in August when school begins. Please contact the school office if you have questions. May Lunch Menu

Summer Skills Books

Dear Salem Parents, We are again offering to order Summer Skills Books for those families that like to use them over the summer months. Sample books can be viewed in the school office. Please place your order by May 7th or feel free to view and order these directly on their website. Here is more information from the Summer Skills Team: Summer-slide is something every teacher is concerned about. Taking three months away from school sets students back when they return in the fall, and that’s in a typical year. According to  a study from research firm McKinsey and Company , the pandemic has put students anywhere from 4-12 months behind, and we aren’t even finished with the challenges of the last year.    Thankfully, the Summer Skills series of books is designed to strengthen skills and reinforce lessons learned. With a variety of subjects for students from kindergarten through 12th grade, there is a way for every student to bounce back from a difficult year and head
