Lunch Numbers Will Be Required Again: Starting on April 22, all students at Salem Junior High will be required to enter their lunch numbers (student ID numbers) into the computer before getting their lunches and breakfasts for the remainder of the school year. The student ID number is used currently when students check out books from the library and when they log in to Chromebooks.
Vanessa Gillie teaches English at Salem Jr High. When she was in 8th grade, she learned about The Diary of Anne Frank, and her teacher challenged the class to try hiding in a basement for 6-8 hours over the weekend. Mrs. Gillie loves to read outside, watch movies while eating Costco popcorn, and wear aprons while she bakes.
Scott Shaffer teaches art at Salem Jr High. When he was in junior high, he got thrown in the trash can with his trumpet. He likes all sorts of art, VR games, mechanical work, racing cars, and camping. Mr. Shaffer's mission statement is "Work outside your comfort zone until it's no longer uncomfortable."
Congratulations to our April Students of the Month! These amazing students were nominated by faculty and staff for being Spartan Strong in Body, Heart, and Mind. Keep up the great work!

SaJHS Talent Show: Don't hide your talent under a bushel! We are excited to have students audition and show off their skills at the SaJHS talent extravaganza. Starting March 21st until April 15th we will have sheets in the office to sign up for an audition slot. Your talent should not exceed 8 minutes (unless it's yodeling, then the sky's the limit). Callbacks will be later in the month of April and the talent show will have a rehearsal on the 12th of May. The actual talent show will be on the 13th of May. We cannot guarantee everyone a slot in the talent show.
