The 3rd-5th grade 4H Robotics Club beings on the 11th.  Permission slips went home today with students who registered.  Spots are still available. Call Mr. Ferguson if you want to sign your child up before Wednesday.  


3rd grade students have their Beginning of Grade reading assessment on Thursday of next week.  This assessment establishes a baseline of how our 3rd graders perform on third grade expectations in reading.  Please make sure they get a good night sleep and a good breakfast Thursday morning so they can show us what they know.


Congrats to New Salem students, teachers, and families.  New Salem scored a B school again this year and Met growth according to North Carolina’s Accountability Model.  “Met Growth” means that on average students at New Salem made a years worth of growth last year. 


Finally, our amazing PTO is renovating and updating our baseball fields.  This will benefit our students as well as our community.
