On Friday, May 3rd, Salem had a great pre-district meet against Springville and  Mapleton. Many people both had personal records and team/district records. Everyone worked so hard to beat their best times and measurements to qualify for the district track meet being held on Thursday, May 9 and Friday, May 10. Congratulations to Paige Simmons by winning the 100m, 200m, 400m, and high jump. Adrene Harding did an amazing job running distance for Salem in the 800m and 1600m.

Gender Wars

Submitted by jolynn.ford on Sun, 04/28/2013 - 19:52

Last week, Salem Junior High School had its very first Gender Wars! Every day at lunch the Student Council would choose boys and girls to compete against each other. They would have to complete various tasks such as rolling toilet paper out with their nose, or even seeing who could pull all of the tissues out of a tissue box first. There were always two teams consisting of girls and boys. Whoever finished their task first was the winner! The best part? At the end of the week the gender with the most wins of all the competitions would get a dollar off to go to the dance.
