    NORTH SALEM                           Enjoys Successes
  ELEMENTARY STATS            The students and staff at North Salem Elementary School have a lot of things to
                              be proud about. First, we were notified by Dr. Tony Bennett, Superintendent of
 Four Star School             Public Instruction, that we were given the honor of being a Four Star School for
 Enrollment: 248				          the second year in a row! That means our students scored in the top 25% of all the

 Exemplary Spring 2012 ISTEP+ smart kids! And, a great staff that works so hard to help them achieve this honor!
                                          We are so grateful for the support of our Parent Teacher
                                          Organization (PTO). Each year, our PTO sponsors our
                                          annual Walk-a-thon fund raiser. They make it fun for
                                          our students and staff. We all receive matching t-shirt
                                          to show our school pride. The money that is generated
                                          helps our students go on field trips and buy school in-

                                          This year, our Student Council sponsored a “Pie in the Face” contest. The students
                                          put money into buckets to vote for the staff member who would have the honor
