Tomorrow, UCPS is celebrating Unity Day by wearing orange.  At New Salem, we recognize the importance of showing kindness and respect to everyone around us.  Please support Unity Day by showing off that orange tomorrow.  

As we near the end of the first grading period it becomes time for parent conferences.  This is a great time to hear about where your child is excelling and where there are growth opportunities.  I am extending the window that teachers normally have to complete parent conferences because they have some other responsibilities that are competing for their time.  Conferences will be complete by November 5th.  

If you ordered a spirit shirt from PTO they want you to know that they have been ordered and are on their way. We will send orders home with students when they arrive.  

Saturday, October 23rd from 1-3 PM is a free PTO event called Fitness is Fun.  Please come out and enjoy some quality time with your child around fitness activities.  

A parent nominated our AIG teacher, Mrs. Hayes, for the Rack Room Shoes Teacher of the Year Award.  If she won it would be a great honor for her and New Salem would receive 10,000.00 to use toward the students and teachers.  Voting is easy.  Simply click the link in the email version of this message and click the blue heart button below her write-up.  You can vote one time per day and hopefully every day until the competition ends on Nov. 5th.  Please show your New Salem Pride by getting as many people as possible to vote for each day.
