The Salem Jr. Marquee Sign Story 

When Salem Jr. PTA was formed this past Jan., we asked Mrs. Kimball what PTA could do to help support the new school.  Her immediate reply was that we could help get a marquee sign for the school, since that was something that wasn't covered in construction/start up school expenses.  Salem Jr. PTA board did a big gulp, and said they'd accept the marquee project. 

Thankfully one of our board members knew the right connections.  Her husband worked for UCCU, and was aware that a marquee was being replaced at a branch.  He asked the right UCCU contacts, and UCCU generously DONATED a beautiful sign for Salem Jr. High.  Thank you UCCU!!!

The sign needed to be refurbished in school colors and logos.  This was completed in time for the ribbon cutting! It looks wonderful.

Salem Jr. PTA is still  fund raising  to pay for the marquee personalization/installation costs.  Our goal is $5000.  We are half way there.  To help get the marquee paid for, we have several options and events that families can choose.

-school tee shirts and car magnet logos are for sale in the front office, and will also be available during parent teacher conference times.  Hoodies will soon be available, too.

-Marquee donations are also accepted at the front office.  Mrs. Riding dropped by last week and made a generous donation for the marquee.  Her family previously owned the land Salem Jr. High sits on!  Thank you Riding family!!!

-Bullseye Buck - this will be a way for students to own a part of the school, by contributing $1 for the marquee!  We hope each student will take part by adding a "buck" during lunch the week of Oct. 22 to Oct. 26. 

-Spartan Run Fun - from our parents came the idea to have a fun run!  So we invite students and families to participate in the Spartan Fun Run.  Nov. 10 at 9 am, sun, rain, wind, or snow!  Be a Spartan and come run!  There will be a 5K and 1 mile.  More information will be available soon.

Salem Jr. PTA is working to build communication between school, students, families, and community.  The beautiful marquee will be a great resource to help us do that.  While the marquee still isn't quite working, it will be soon. 

Thanks for helping Salem Jr. PTA support Salem Jr. High.  We stand united! Go Spartans!

Welcome to our school Spartans! 

It is so exciting to finally be starting a new school year in our new school!  We are thankful for so many that have supported and helped along the way to get our school ready:  students and parents helping with school set up and move in, faculty spending extra time preparing their new classrooms ready, administration personnel working long summer days to have everything ready to go. 

Salem Jr. PTA is also thankful for the beautiful new marquee that has been donated by Utah Community Credit Union!  This will provide a valuable means of communication for our school!  Although the marquee has been installed, Salem Jr. PTA needs donations to pay for its refurbishment and  set up.  Our goal is to raise $4,500 to cover those expenses.  We ask for your help and contribute what you can!

Good luck with transitioning from summer to school this next week!  We know it'll be a great year because of great Spartan students, teachers, and families!

Hello Spartans!

I hope you are enjoying the summer, and the heat!  We are officially half way through our summer vacation!!!

Our new school is getting ready!  Today was a fun and busy day as  moving boxes were unloaded and put into classrooms by the morning Spartan team. The afternoon Spartan team unpacked computer equipment and hauled out empty boxes until the dumpster was full.  Thanks to a Spartan student for organizing his Eagle Project that benefited the school.  There are several Eagle Projects that are helping get our school ready for Aug! Yea for Spartan Service!

The end of the school year brings.... 

The days are getting longer.  School days are getting busier.  It must mean the end of the school year is getting close. 

But not at Salem Jr. High.  The principal, counselors, secretary, teachers and staff are all busy working on a new school year!!! They're meeting, planning, collaborating.  They're purchasing new furniture and new books.  They're auditioning, holding elections, meeting students.  The end of the school year brings the start of Salem Jr. High.  

Salem Jr. PTA is also busy working!  We're working on marquee funding, mascot, T-shirts, volunteer helpers.  We're hoping to meet students and parents and build school and community Spartan Service.  While other PTA's are winding down, we're winding up for a great year that's just beginning.

The end of the school year brings excitement and anticipation for our new Salem Jr. High!  We hope you're just as excited as we are!

The excitment is building 

Have you driven past our new junior high?  The construction workers are very busy!  We are getting closer to having a new school completed!

As I've talked to parents and students, everyone is so excited for this school!  Students are anxious for t-shirts to wear, showing they are Spartans!  Parents are wondering who the new teachers will be.  Everyone is wondering how this school will be different from previous junior highs.  Our PTA board is busy thinking and planning programs and activities that will bring our community together, help our school be great, and give the best to our students!  

Look soon for the first edition of Spartan News!  The excitement is building!  We're glad to be a part of it!
