December School News

COVID Update We have quite a few families with COVID right now. Many are not the students, but we are seeing more students out quarantining. We continue to document the cases and quarantining as needed. St. Croix Joint Ministry with Salem Due to the Council looking into the financial situation of the church and school, this joint ministry has been put on hold for a year. We will have more updates like the one at the previous voters meeting as we start up next school year. The one page update is attached below if you would like to view it. If you want a printed copy, please reach out to Mr. Klatt or the church office. Update Document: Joint Ministry Update Jump Up Day - December 3 On December 3rd, 8th grade students will be going to St. Croix to experience life as a high school student. They will attend classes, have lunch, and get to go bowling. On the Salem campus, the students will get to experience what life will be like next year. They will “jump up” to the next grad

Bake Sale Message from SPTO

Are you going to be doing some Christmas baking these next few weeks? If so, please consider making just a few extra to donate for Salem's Bake Sale at each Christmas service! All proceeds will go toward the PA system. Because the kid's Christmas programs are spread throughout Advent, we will need some goodies each week! If you are able, please put the cookies on the cart near the school office prior to each Christmas service. We would love to have items available for each service on December 1st, 8th, 9th, and 15th. Not into baking but still would like to help out? There are two options: 1) We are accepting store-purchased goodies. 2) We need 1-2 volunteers for each service to collect money "work" at the station. With each service being right after school, it makes it easy to volunteer and you could even do it for your child's service! Please sign up to volunteer here:

Weather Closings

Good Morning Salem Family, Our snowfall over the weekend is reminding me to share how Salem will communicate when we close for inclement weather. The first place to look is the ClassDojo app. I will make a school announcement and your children's teachers will send you a message as well that school is closed. We will also put our closing on WCCO, FOX, Kare 11, and KSTP. Please make sure you look closely at the TV as there is a Salem in Greenfield, on the opposite side of the cities as well. Look for Salem-Stillwater or Salem- Washington County. I try to call school around 6am or shortly there after. Winter weather is here! Thanks in advance for checking ClassDojo for information as we post it. Principal Klatt
