Two More Days Until Semester Break: We can hardly believe it but there are only two more days until the end of term 2. Please check your students' grades on Icampus and encourage them to talk to their teachers and turn in any assignments that are past due.

Winter Reading Program: Salem City library has a winter reading program. Just for reading you can win badges, prizes and tickets for drawings. If you can read, you can participate. Sign yourself up and your kids. To sign up, go to this link. For more information contact the library at

Fun and Games with the Counselors: Starting on January 19, students will notice a new class on their Canvas page called "Fun and Games with the Counselors."  Each week students can complete a fun assignment and submit it to be entered into a drawing for a goodie bag. You read that correctly, a goodie bag full of goodies! The goal of these activities and assignments is to learn more about emotional health and coping skills. Each week there will be a new lesson. Students don't have to do the assignments every week but will only be entered for the drawing on weeks they participate. Did I mention there will be goodie bags?! For questions, contact Mrs. Johnson in the counseling office at

Schedule Changes: Students can request schedule changes for 2nd semester beginning January 11th by using this link. Students will be called down in the order they signed up. Parents, please contact your student’s counselor if you have any schedule related questions. The counselors will do their best to accommodate your scheduling requests. Please note that many classes for 2nd semester are full and changes are subject to availability and teacher approval. Students are expected to stay with the same math and English teachers throughout the entire school year.

9th Grade Baseball: If you are a 9th grade boy, and interested in participating in the freshman baseball program, please come get Coach Haney’s contact information in the front office.  He would like you to contact him as soon as possible.
