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.

The PTA is extending our annual March Madness fundraiser another week!  We would like to remind that this is our only big fundraiser for the school for the year.  We do not ask you to sell anything!  We simply send envelopes home with the students and ask for at least $5 per family.  The class that returned the most this week will receive a treat, and the class that has the highest percentage returned next week receives a treat.  We encourage all to return their envelopes whether they can donate at this time or not.
