Salem Junior High School's first year has been a great year! Thank you to all our students, parents, faculty, and staff! To commemmorate our first year, a time capsule was filled and buried, to be opened in 25 years. Visit http://youtu.be/-YKhYCsyWSg for video and pictures.
On the last day of school, May 24, we placed a time capsule in the front of the school. The Student Council did a fantastic job organizing this activity. They placed various items in the time capsule including a yearbook that many students signed, the ribbon from the Ribbon Cutting ceremony, and other items from our first year. The time capsule will be opened in 25 years!! Hopefully, many of the students will be able to return to see the opening!
For more than one year the teachers of the band/orchestra, choir and drama departments of Salem Jr High School and Mount Nebo Jr HIgh School have been working on preparing for this night. They have worked so hard to be ready for these two nights. With Rachel Brooksby, Jana Lee Stubbs, Laura Turner, Rock White, and Kaitlin Brady putting the whole thing together. There were over 500 students participating each performance night. Also there were a total of 25 songs that most of the students had to memorize. Monday May 20, 2013 was Mt. Nebo’s actors to take center stage.
