12.3.2021 Pride Celebration

Wow, today was a fun day!  


First, thank you to our 30+ parent volunteers today that covered classes and allowed our staff to enjoy a holiday lunch provided by Pleasant Hill Baptist Church.  You all MADE IT HAPPEN!  You rock!  


We also hosted the Wingate University Softball Team today.  Their athletes played PE with our students today and shared information with them about a pen pal mentorship program that the softball team facilitates.  Flyers will come home today and Monday with students about this program.  


Progress reports should have come home with all students today.  Please check your child’s red folder for their progress report.  


This year we implemented a method to positively recognize students for showing their school expectations or PRIDE via a Pride Card and earning “Letters Above the Line”.  Now that our students and teachers have had time to teach and practice giving students ongoing positive feedback about PRIDE we will be running a school-wide celebration for showing New Salem Pride.  For our first celebration, we need you to consider donating some items.  We are in need of empty 2-liter bottles, glow sticks, string lights, and black lights.  Any donations need to be sent in no later than December 8th.  Thank you in advance for your support.


Finally, our next School Improvement Team meeting is on Monday, December 6th, virtually, at 6 PM.  The link to the meeting is in the email version of this message.
