Did you know many students from Salem Hills High School and Salem Junior High raise and exhibit animals at Junior Livestock Shows around the state every year? We have students showing steers, lambs and hogs locally this week.  The local auction is on May 3 at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds.  Now is a great time to fill your freezer and support the youth of our community.  The cost is listed below.

Yesterday, the Hope Squad kicked off their duties with an annual retreat. 

The Hope Squad is a group of students that provide support, encouragement, referral and resources to students who may be struggling. It requires attendance to a monthly meeting and initial training for those students involved. Students in the hope squad have been nominated by their peers as someone they would turn to in a difficult situation.

For the PTA March Madness Fundraiser, the PTA offered an ice cream party to any class that could get 100% of students in the class to return the March Madness Form. Mrs. Huhtalas Class is the only class that earned the ice cream prize!

One of Mr. Dayton's classes won the pizza party grand prize by collecting $108. 

All of the money raised will stay with our school's PTA to use for the benefit of Salem Junior High.
