4th Grade Pirate Day

 4th graders participated in Pirate Day on Friday, May 16th.  Students dressed up as pirates, went on a scavenger hunt and conducted webquests. 


Recycling Project a Huge Success

Salem just completed our annual aluminum can recycling drive. We collected over 1,600 pounds of aluminum cans and earned over $800.00 in just one month! The children were rewarded with ice cream and pizza for their participation.  Thanks to the recycling club and PTO for their help with this project!  The entire school participated in this event and a portion of these funds will be divided between Burke Co. Friends for Animals and Salem's 4-H Gardening Club.

Third Graders Participate in QR Code Scavenger Hunt

Third graders recently participated in an exciting QR Code Scavenger Hunt.  Using their Ipads and a QR code reader app, students traveled around the school building deciphering QR codes.  At each location, codes contained a task related to the third grade curriculum that students had to complete using digital technology and a clue to the location of the next QR code.  Please ask any third grader for more information about QR codes!





Mrs. Acord's Class Wax Museum

Famous North Carolinians came to life in the media center at Salem on Friday, March 21st!  Students in Mrs. Acord’s 4th grade reading class created a wax museum as a culminating activity for a research project.  Each student wrote a research paper and created a virtual museum using their laptop computers, then gathered artifacts related to their person, and dressed in character for the event.  Students and parents visited the wax museum and were able to talk to each character and learn more about important people from our state.
