School dances are fun and entertaining

Submitted by amy.huhtala on Tue, 12/17/2013 - 15:45

Personally, I think that having dances at Salem Jr. is a good idea. It allows students to come  hang out, listen to music, and have a good time. When students step into the school, they are now in a safe, monitored environment.

So many people complain that when they go to the dances, people ask them to dance and they don't want to get asked to dance. Well, simple solution. If you don’t want to get asked to dance, don't go to the dances.

Salem students fight district hat policy

Submitted by amy.huhtala on Tue, 12/17/2013 - 15:38

There has been a petition going around SaJHS involving hats. This petition started at Salem Hills High School (SHHS) by a senior named Justus Thomas. Justus started this petition and got it approved by the principal of SHHS, Bart Peery. The petition reached this school because of Justus’ sister, Adri Thomas, eighth grader. The petition has reached about 500-600 signatures by mostly students.
