The 7th graders are reading "The Lightning Thief" and Mrs. Huhtala's and Mr. Brook's 5th and 6th period classes have turned Room 117 into Camp Half Blood. Every year, students in Room 117 compete to be the winners of the Cabin Wars by doing well as a group. Each student has been "named" a demi god from one of the following gods or goddesses: Athena, Ares, Poseidon, Demeter, Apollo, and Zeus. This coming Wednesday, students will compete in their first olympian quest. More pictures of Camp Half Blood will be posted through out Term 4. Stay tuned to see what the "Olympians" are up to.
On Tuesday, March 10, our school concert band (8th and 9th graders) performed for a district assessment where all 7 schools in the district perform and are given a rating on a 1-5 scale: 1 is the highest and 5 is the lowest. Our students performed the best they have all year and received a rating of 1-, just under the highest rating possible. You can be very proud of the band students at Salem Jr. They are making excellent music!
