Spotlight on Cultural Arts PTA Opening

In this week’s spotlight we would like to look at our Cultural Arts opening. This committee member would work with the Salem staff and United Arts Council to schedule events for Salem students. There will be a United Arts Council meeting that would be beneficial to attend at the beginning of the year. The PTA usually helps bring one cultural arts event per grade, sometimes more if the opportunities and funds are there. The committee member coordinates the events and ensures the artists have what they need on the day of the performance.

If this is something you might be interesting in helping with or if you have any questions, please contact Cathy Ketterer at cathyketterer@yahoo.com.

Box Tops for Student Government


Student Government relies on box tops for education to help pay for events your child will enjoy throughout the school year. We are asking that you please send any box tops you collect with your child to school. Every box top counts!!
